    Guys bear with me and be gentle I'm new to the Audi world

    Just come across those lights, and they claim it's just plug and play
    But then I've scanned over threads on here where people have had Audi link lights up to work with the car etc?

    I really love the led style tails, is this the easiest way to go about it?
    Thanks in advance and help me save my money lol

    Sedan model? Is that saloon model in the UK or estate?
    I'd also like to know if they'd suit.. Or how to code then out.

    These look the same as the ones I had on my previous 2008 b8, saloon. I bought them from FK Tuning, Germany, they were plug & play although when I sold them on the fog light had to be coded out as it stayed on with tail lights on, buyer told me this was a two minute job, I didn't have this issue on my car, 2008 model, buyers was a 2010.

    @evans1089 - sedan = saloon in most other countries, as when I bought my lights from FK web-site, it lists them as sedan.

    Please check FK Tuning reviews if purchasing from them, as their prices seem to go up when there is a demand for a certain product, also out of stock issues after purchase can mean you wait an age for your items.
    I didn't have any of these issues, thank goodness. :thumbs up:
    As far as I can tell these lights are made by Deko, but do your own research and price comparison.

    Yes mate, that certainly looks like them, its been a couple of years since I bought mine so as I said, you need to do your own research and confirm fitting. You don't get any instructions with them, although they are easy enough to work out, if I remember right you have to use your existing reverse bulbs as these aren't LED.
    If decide to get them, drop me a pm and I'll get you in touch with the guy I sold mines to, he'll help you out, I'm sure, with fitting ect.

    So is the fk-shop a genuine site?

    Coilovers were so cheap and had a rough hassle paying on the website so assumed it was dodgy!

    Shogun I did some research into threse as I also have a 2008 with the standard halogen rears. As far as i'm aware if you buy aftermarket LED lights only the outside edges of the LED cluster will lightup on braking, so it will still look different to the 2010+ OEM brake lights. Also some people have had issues with their rear fog lights being stuck permanently on and have had to have their vehicles coded to turn them off, however I think its literally a two minute to get them coded.

    If you buy OEM lights then you car will require coding. Also they cost nearly £500 for a set!

    The two links below were the lights I was looking at. I was going to buy a set before I needed to replace my wheel bearings! :mad:

    FK Tuning ( automotive ) in Germany, think it depends on year of your A4 whether fogs need coding or not, Mac may be able to provide more info re this.

    Cheers John, will be changing them soon for OEM, but these ones are great.
    I don't have a link as bought from a member on here but they are from FK Automotive.
    Yes they did need coding, simple via VCDS

    The B8.5 lights won't fit the B8, it's really up to you whether you buy aftermarket or OEM, here's a pic of both on my car
