    Thread: Euro taillights for free

    1. 05-01-2012 05:57 AM #1
      Hi for all who is interested,

      I'm from the Netherlands and driving a 2.0 tdi 170 bhp 2008 sportback.
      In europe our taillights come wiht a amber tinted part in the taillights. Which most US A3 owners love. Here in europe most of us love the US taillights.

      So this is what i suggest; a cost neutral swap eurotaillights for US taillights.

      My taillights are in perfect condition.(always hand washed and when needed plastpolished). All the bulbs function aswell since im still using them.

      Hope hearing from you soon.

      I'll do it!

      You want just the outers, -right?

      I have a set ready to ship to you right here.

      I have both outers AND inners if needed, but since the inners are the same, I would have THOUGHT that only the outers need to be shipped.

      Mine are in absolutely perfect shape; not dirty etc. -Can take photos this evening.

      Emailed photos.

      All bulbs are there, they were in full working order when they were removed, so there should be no problems.

      Packed and ready to ship... if the pcs look good, email me a mailing address and I'll send them off.

      to save on postage, maybe only ship the part that is different. that means take the light apart and ship the lens only. If the yellow lens is separable from the rest of the lens, maybe take apart that piece and send that.

      No can do. Amber (note: not yellow!) and red are integrally moulded.

      The bulb-holder part may be the same (I haven't checked), but since this has no affect on the physical bulk of the shipment, that may as well be included.
