On the other hand, no matter where you are in the world it seems like the grass is always greener elsewhere. There must be somebody in Europe who really wants 'US Style' rear lights on their A3, all I had to do was find that person.... I posted on a few German A3 forums, but got no serious takers. Finally a fellow member of the VWVortex/Fourtitiude A3 forum said that he wanted US taillamps with red signals on his A3 in Turkey. We agreed to a swap. I borrowed a set of US lenses from someone who had already done the upgrade, and with only a little bit of waiting and the cost of shipping, the exchange was made! My original taillight lenses now live in Turkey, and my car now has proper amber turn signals.
You can order these from several vendors in the US such as World Impex, or it may be cheaper actually to have them shipped over from VAGParts.
