That is the wrong bulb for everyone's information.  It will corrode in the 
socket making it a pain to get out and well life misery.  The correct bulb 
for your car is a P21/5 for the outside tail lights P21 for the turn back-up 
(some stop), also in use on some cars is an R10 for the inner tail lights on 
models with 2-3 sets of tail light bulbs.

Welcoming gesture: You can find these bulbs at Walmart or any parts store as 
well.  Sylvania uses different numbers for the same bulbs but they are 
correctly listed under AUDI in the Sylvania/Osram catalog.
