    Talking Looks nice

    Hey looks nice ,

    Shame they are expensive ....

    you need to get some legal metal plates mate look so much better !!

    http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/264...-pr-16392.html

    Fine in the main interior light. Crisp, white, clear Not cheap tho, Total: 10.30 inc P&P

    So I need to do all the other lights like the map lights, boot, vanity mirrors, number plate, glove box, door open light (dont know the technical term When you open the door, there is a light that shines on to the road).

    So I went to work with just the two I bought above and tried them out.
    Worked in the vanity mirrors, worked in the number plate, worked in the boot. Pics below....

    The map lights, door open light on road are a different type so I need to find ones that will fit the purpose.

    So, now on to what I have read, if you use too many, you get DIS error or they dont shine as bright, all to do with risistence and fitting risistors helps but then you have the problem of risistors getting hot. So my plan is this (as I dont want to shell out a lot of candy then it does not work).

    I have fitted the two I have in the number plate, looks amazin
    Will order another two and fit them in the main interior light. If all is good with that, order anther three for glovebox, and vanity mirrors. All that will be left is boot, map lights, and shiney road lights. So this is going to take a bit of time to do but just maybe!

    Good news I got my faulty bulb working in the end so no annoying visit to the dealers to get it looked at under warranty. Looks the dogs now and really freshens up the rear of the car.

    So here is what I have managed to do so far...
    Driver and passenger vanity mirror lights (2 festoons)
    Driver and Passenger puddle lights in both doors (2 wedge - 1 per door)
    Main interior front lights (2 festoons)
    Front map lights (2 bayonet)
    Glove box Light (1 festoon)
    Number plate lights (2 festoons)

    Been running this for two days now, no issues. All pure white crystal clear, no DIS errors, no dimming of any lights as some of the 8P guys mentioned.

    Still to do...
    Boot lights (2 festoons)
    Rear map lights (2 bayonet)
    Front side lights (headlamps (2 wedge)) I did buy these but they are too blue and my headlights are pure white, I aint having two tone!

    Photos available upone request

    i think 'festoon' refers to the shape of the bulb.... difference being normal have an element, LEDs have....LED's inside the glass part with circuit board so you need to aim them

    Hehehe Tell me about it! (Does Look Good Though)

    I ordered more to do the rest of the work and like you Animal, they were slightly bigger. Bit of a pain but got them working, just tight fit. Did not phone or email to ask but they are definitely different to the first two that I got, slightly longer.

    Seriously tho, looks mint inside, four people have been in it since done and they all want the exact same -tho they dont have Audi so they will need to work it out for themselves.

    Check out this thread and scroll to the pics of the 8P in it. You will get the jist. Just wish I had his seats! In fact, the whole motor!

    the actual bits that look like bulbs are just adapters that fit into the normal space. the white slab part is actually the LED's. its easy mate i've just done mine over the weekend, makes the rear of the car look miles better and fresher i must say, especially after a good clean and polish!

    Inside the actual bulb im sure theres a resistor in there where the filament should go, so they should last a while hopefully. All the different bits are just the different festoon bulb types. All you need is the one second from the right (I think) and the white LED panel which clips into the bulb. When you get the pack you'll see its dead easy to fit
