    Interior LED pack for 8L S3/A3

    I had a chat with trups (EM Tuning) as I have always wanted to replace the interior lights with LEDs and there seems to be so many types of LED bulb out there that I just couldn't be arsed to sit down and sort it... thankfully trups could be arsed and after letting him know what bulbs were currently in the car he sorted a kit out for me...

    The kit arrived promptly (he sent them out Tuesday and they turned up the following day)... the kit consisted of LEDs to replace the following...
    Front interior lights, front map lights, visor vanity mirror lights, glovebox light, rear interior map lights, boot lights, door puddle lights and door red warning lights...




    the LEDs were labelled up appropriately to make it a no brainer as to which bulb was for what light...


    started off by changing the rear map lights...


    ...the difference is fairly obvious...


    then did the front interior light cluster... before...


    ...festoons replaced...


    ....map lights replaced...


    ....bit of a difference between the LEDs and good ol' fashioned bulbs...


    On to the door lights... my S3 has red door warning lights and white puddle lights so... out with the old bulbs..


    Had a few probs sliding the LEDs in so had to tweak the bulb holder contacts a bit with small needle nose pliers to get it to slide in ok...


    ...there was also a small issue with the fly lead 501 connector on the LED as it would fit the contacts very well... this may well be down to the design of the bulb holder so out came the pliers again for a bit of tweaking and I also placed a bit of insulating tape on the back of the LED as it was close enough the the contacts for me to feel uncomfortable about it...


    The result...


    Same process for the puddle lamp... before...


    ...after...


    After doing both doors I then fitted the vanity mirror light bulbs... they are a bit of a bugger to get out as the metal clip can get caught up so be careful...


    Before...


    ...after...


    Next the glove box LED...


    ...and finally the boot lights...


    Before...


    ...after...


    All the lights work as the factory ones do so can be turned on/off and fade on and off with unlocking/locking the doors etc... they are very bright indeed and make a big difference internally so result :D

    Big thanks again to trups for sorting this so quickly and completely... great service... I am not posting prices up here but suggest if you are looking to do this then head over to EM Tuning and ask trups what he can do for you

    Thats a fair point... the easiest way to do it tbh is just tell the man which bits you do or don't want in the kit... the one I had is pretty comprehensive and covers pretty much every incandescent bulb inside the car... I would like to do the sidelights and foglights next :D

    I managed to bugger up the drivers side initially... worked out how to get them out and straightened the metal retaining clip... I'll get a pic later...

    It looks awesome Tufty, I've done the same but only done the interior lights so far and the side lights...need to do the door and boot next. Makes a massive difference to the look of the inside.

    Hi All,

    i can do the kits out for you all, or even bulbs that you dont have.

    maybe a group buy but i gave a fairly good discount to tuftty, this was tuftty's bill..

    front and rear map lights - £10 - 5 led
    front dome lights - £7.50 - 4 led
    sunvisor lamps - £6 - 2 led
    boot lights - £7 - 3 led
    puddle lights - £8 - 4 led custom panel
    red warning lamps - £8 - 4 led custom panel
    glove box bulb - £2.50 - 2 led

    total is £49.00

    i will do this kit for £39 posted to UK or NI.

    the 4 led bulb for the main dome light is perfect, if you need to go brighter then i can do a 6 led bulb for an extra £1.

    Thanks
    SLOW REPLIES BETWEEN 22nd - 30th June due to been out the office, please bare with me. Thanks

    LOL, I made a thread on it somewhere that there was differences between 1999/2000 APY S3's, analogue clock on the dash has less lights, your digital clock means you have facelift interior lights, but still prefacelift exterior and dashboard.

    This looks like a good kit!

    Do you know where to get sidelights from? The standard ones are quite dim by todays standards and I think LED ones will make the car look a little more modern with them on when it's gloomy or raining.

    The bulbs from this kit for the map lights will work in the sidelights for the S3.

    They are an extra £5 if you want to add them to the kit.

    Hi Trups,

    What would the price be for just the sidelights delivered please? I will probably do the full kit at some point but would just like the sidelights for now please. I will send you a paypal.
