    Hey guys,

    So does anyone know the exact dimensions of the C7 tailights (both units) vs. C7.5 that has running turn signals? Sedan

    I am considering doing a retrofit as there are modules for ~1500 EUR there but wondering if the dimensions are exactly the same or will I have a minimal gap.

    Some say that a bumper change is also required (if so, what part number?), some do not. Any ideas?

    inner lights on the boot lid are the same.
    But sadly the outer lights are slightly smaller and therefore a gap ,see pic.

    new bumper , unless someone comes up with a solution.6586EE1A-C69A-40F5-8D4F-67828181E522.jpg

    i priced up the dynamic lights from euro wagons and came in at about 750.00 - a lot cheaper than 1500 euros.

    and the you tube clip

    Thank you! Do you happen to know the bumper part number or just how it looks? It is a plug n play fit 2012 > 2011 pre face lift? New diffuser is also required then, no?

    It is a sedan, s line btw.

    I mean, I am having trouble visualizing which part of the bumper (or the whole thing if it is uniform) is replaced.

    Regarding prices, I went to audi dealer and they quoted ~300 eur per headlight unit, su 4 x 300 + adapters is probably the fine price, assuming you go with original.

    UK retrofits stock these with gap inserts for similar price but I would rather get a new bumper if it is as easy to fit as it is.

    I like you have a pre FL , when i realised a bumper change would be required , I didnt look into this any further.

    just google for FL bumper / eBay.

    I didn't realise gap inserts were available, pls would post the link to their website , thx
