Great write-up Del, it was really useful when I changed my inner units today. The only difficulty I encountered was fitting those grommets....I needed an extra pair of <small> hands.

The originals were fitted by Ian (pre March 2014) and had failed the standard way, horizontal cracks along the reverse light section, leading to water ingress and eventual failure. As everyone has stated, shocking build quality for a premium car

I've bought from Spareto in Estonia, another member first posted about them when he upgraded his S8 to the facelift lights. Back then it was around 650 for a full set but looking at their prices now it'll be approx 780 (plus postage) for those same units. I don't quite understand why all four are different prices, but they are. I haven't priced them anywhere else but I'd imagine that price is competitive

They were under 700 when I last priced them up few months back. I could not justify that amount on lights as my ones are very good at present.

Photobucket was free and then they pulled the rug from under user's feet.
There is a workaround to use Chrome browser with the Photobucket hotlink fix extension ...https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...alioapbifiaedg
