Rear lights - Sportback to Coupe??

Hi all,
I want to convert my 2008 rear halogen lights to the Facelift LED lights (the newest rear lights).

I'm in the midst of doing a GREAT deal with someone, however, I have the Coupe, and these facelift lights are from a Sportback.

Are they interchangeable? Will the facelift rear lights from a Sportback fit a 2008 Coupe?

Thanks,
T.

Update (for all those who are looking for the same answer):

I called up a professional Audi Retrofitting company, who guaranteed me that the Coupe/Sportback/Cabrio rear facelift lights are all interchangeable, which spurred me to on get an AMAZING deal on rear facelift lights for my 2008 A5 Coupe (they came from a 2013 A5 Sportback)!

Hope this helps everyone!

Part numbers are differrent, but they all basically the same under the bonnet! Don't know why Audi decided to put different part numbers for the same set of parts.

According to @Ash187 (who does professional Audi Retrofitting for a living - Audi Retrofits), they're the same. Maybe they're just given a different part number, but he's 100% that the Coupe/Sportback/Cabriolet facelift rear lights are all interchangeable.

Probably another way for them to somehow make a profit!
