    There where two versions of rear cluster for the 05-09 car. In the UK, if you had halogen headlights, then you had normal bulb tail lights. However, if you had Xenon headlights, then you had "highline" tail lights, which had LED brake lights. All other bulbs are the same, but there is an LED strip across the top of the unit for the brake lights.
    This can be retro fitted to the car and is a straight swap for the existing rear cluster. Simply requires a vagcode to enable the LED brake lights.

    Hope that helsp

    Hi Jim,

    Have you checked the fog and reversing lights are the right way round ?

    I was looking at the coding of the central convenience module on my car the other day and tried to work out how the code was derived. When I added up all my options, it came to a number higher than the coding. If I took out the code for "Right hand steering" I got the right code.

    Just wandering if they added the code for Right hand steering to yours. I think that may control which side the fog light is. Could be wrong though, I'm certainly no VAG COM expert.

    Cheers
    Dave

    Only had my 2007 A6 a few weeks and after washing it at the weekend have noticed fogging of the rear light cluster and also side indicator lenses.

    I'm taking it in on friday to have it looked at and hopefully replaced. I've already got the highline tail lights so I'm guessing they will just swap them.

    Has there been a fix for this problem or is it that some of the seals were just dodgy?
    A6.................Because I'm worth it!

    Hey there Spinney.....If you have the later versions, chances are they'll just swap them out for you. They have at least 2 different suppliers I believe.
    I found that the later ones I received were from a different supplier and once fitted had no problems since.
    Just remember - take no nonsense and stand your ground, especially as you're still under warranty.
    This is a known issue

    Jeeesh - the drivers side rear light has serious condensation AGAIN.....well, more like water droplets accumulating and it looks nasty
    Called the dealership to complain yesterday - to be absolutely fair to them. They've arranged not only to replace the light and re-seal it, but also to send out a mobile tech to carrry out the work to my home address.
    This'll be the 6th light replaced to date though - not good!

    Darn! Was this with your new Highline LED rear lights? We were all hoping your problem was fixed by having these fitted.

    Sorry to hear you're still struggling with the problem. Keep smiling!

    Hey MFGF, unbelievable I know. What gets to me more is the fact that there are hundreds of Audi drivers out there all suffering the same problem and not shouting about it
    Sheer weight of numbers seems to be the only way they are gonna rectify the problem.

    I did hear, that they were designed to "breathe" to allow for this condition, which I find strange. I woulda thought they would have been sealed which is what the dealership were told to do by Audi on my last set. The passenger side is still ok, just the drivers side gone, so maybe they just didn't manage to seal that side as well?
