Yup. The left (855 945 217) and right (855 945 218) tail lights
acquired a "B" suffix and the designation "BLACK" after B-85-F-900001.
This part is also called for the Sport quattro. After C-85-G-900001
the suffix is "C". What the difference is - I have no idea. The bulb
holders (855 945 221 and 855 945 222) both acquired an "A" suffix
with the first change.
The bulbs changed, too, from 017 718 5 to 017 738 5. I think the
"black" bulbs are double filament.

The centre panel doesn't seem to change. In any case, only RHD is
available within the UK.

It's in the centre panel, and is LHD/RHD sensitive.

Never were in print here. I use original Audi workshop microfiche.
