Just installed my post facelift Euro spec tails on my 98.5'

Notice the nice amber repeater. For the record, these are OEM Audi tails made in Italy, not the DEPO replicas I was originally looking for. Anyways thanks to fellow member lilman05 for the hook up. I have been wanting these tails since I brought my B5. I could not stand the North American red signal. The install was easy, all I needed to do was switch two wires around, which was a little annoying, but not hard at all. Here is a great DIY: http://www.audiworld.com/tech/ext38.shtml

Enjoy the pics! Sorry, my B5 is in ghetto mode and a bit dirty from the Chicago winter. [:p]

^^^ Yea, they are facelift tails like the ones on the S4. Only thing is they are European spec and have their required amber signal. I think its cool.

Yea, I saw him on the vortex. I think he has the mid-facelift EU tails.

SantorinA4 - Do your facelift DEPO's look similar to mine?

I thought about it, but I like the asymmetrical rear fog concept because it is more attention grabbing... besides, 'most idiot American' drivers think dual rear fogs mean brake lights. I only use the feature when its needed, maybe on the freeway when there is severe roadspray or during a whiteout snowstorm.

I had dual rear fogs in my Land Rover and I took out the passenger bulb to make it a single setup. I think its more proper this way. LOL

Other than Im willing to bet that most of the drivers on the road have no idea what a rear fog is and more than likely think that you have a tail light out anyways......when I was on the way back from getting my A4, my friend who took me to get it called me to tell me I had a tail light out when I turned the rear fog on to see if it worked.......case and point

Where did you source the Euro trunk? I mean the real deal Euro trunk, not a 96 NA trunk.

ordered it from germany, a fathers day present from my fiance' 2 years ago. brand new oem metal. it needed a lot of little parts to get it to work right.
