    new switches arent required tbh as you no doubt know nhn just a complete rewire (got mine all done and tidyed up yesterday)

    i had a look into the indicator issue tbh you could always just wire directly to the convenience module like scottie did and voila, but since i got facelift doors i didnt have to worry

    Hadn't seen this post, I know the MY11 have a smaller dimension than the dumbos and if they folded in not up I would have had them. With them folding up, this exposes the mirror to dust, water marks and when it rains, the caps collect water (I think) unless they are designed with a run off and lastly more exposure to vandalism to the glass. But as the saying goes, one man's meat..

    This was me trying to do some of the work myself! I din't have folding mirrors originally with the car so was missing the folding mirror switch on the door card but changed this when I fitted heated leather S-Line seats in the car. I had the facelift folding mirrors for a year but had not activated the LED indicators as I still had the wing indicators. I tried the M door modules but the central locking was going haywire so used the G's instead then wired to power module when facelift was done.


    Code what led's?

    I think Phil had stated he had coded his facelift LED headlights in a previous thread without the need of rewiring so was asking whether he had any DIS errors.


    Just goto etka for MY11, its in plain view under the relevant section.

    I wish I had ETKA myself would be so much easier! My dealer is away so I've had to rely on others. They can only find the non-perforated one (SKH) for some reason.

    Well explained Phil thanks, lucky you with your latest highend power module to be able to code without rewiring, I was going to upgrade mine but heard one gets the 'Christmas Tree Effect' so I haven't done unless NHN knows how?

    Your car is coming on great by the way Phil, can't wait for the big reveal!

    I see you have the same issue I do. The rear well liner does not meet the rear bumper. I imagine you don't really care about the looks. However, if you do, then you may want to get the part number for the S3 liner and plastic part which connects the liner to the rear bumper and send it to me. I can't seem to get eny help so far

    Yes M modules do work, but in my case it was easier to use the G's to avoid rewiring my power module, then wire just two wires for the LED indicators. Job done!

    I had xenons already specced so auto levelling came as standard so a lot easier to do my facelift.

    BUT, have a look here:- KUFATEC GmbH & Co. KG - Auto-Leveling Headlights - Retrofit- Audi A3 8P/8PA/Cabrio 33790

    AL is only for the headlight bit (bi-xenon) the LED's don't use AL. Yes, you can use AL from prefacelift like I did, but I'm sure it's the same system like in the link...

    Halogen equipped cars have manual levelling, there is a switch in the car with a headlight symbol marked 0 - 3 (I think) that you have to adjust yourself depending on how many big boned people are sitting in the car. AL retrofitting is a biggish job but I'm sure it has been done on here or on another forum. You will not get everthing from Audi, Kufatec get everything you need and sell it as a package.

    Hopefully NHN will come along (or PM him) and let you know much it would cost you, parts required etc as he's the expert on such subjects..

    Revive this thread a lil What is involved in having to re-wire the power module if 'M' modules are used? Is it worth ordering/ seeking out G's to avoid this as you done dean or is it just to save a little time? GArage will be doing the work so if G's save labour costs I may seek those instead

    It's alive!

    Lol, I did try using M modules but then I could not get in ther car afterwards due to door modules wired differently and I had not upgraded my CE unit as well. G's were plug and play and supported folding too and all I had to do is wire in the indicator wires and code to suit and voilla, job done! This may be different for your car though so just beware. Where are you having yours done?

    lol :D

    Haven't found anywhere yet, been speaking to a few body shops near to me (London), but want one that has experience with A3 new shapes in particular. I have found a few different CE's I may go for a K as you used. If that will do the job, from what I understand it isn't the 'highend' 30 byte CE, but a 23 byte 'medium' CE is that correct? Not that I could tell you what the difference between the 2 are though :D lol!!

    Plug n play sounds good with the 'G' module, if it saves time then I'm game as it will dave €$ to. How can I tell what module will be required for mine then or is it all about what I module is currently in the car?

    Looks like I'll be needing VAG.COM soon as well

    Good luck with the search, make sure they know what they are doing with regards to the facelift, not the easiest of things to do but it's possible.

    So long as the CE is highend and above an F revision then you should be ok. K has been superseded by P revision but this one has had some problem I've heard on retrofit..

    I don't really think it matters as such what one had before, I had H modules and went backwards to a G!

    Defo need VCDS, I was working overtime with a borrowed one, now I can think about it a little than trying to do everything at once..
