Hi, I'm looking to buy some white LED sidelights (501) that I can put straight into my 2005 A3 with no other modifications.
There are LED bulbs on the market, but when I see cars with them fitted they never give off the same light as a conventional bulb due to the LED light arrangement not being directed into the relector of the light. They normally just face forwards which give just two bright white dots on each side...
You may also have an issue with "bulb failure" warnings unless they have the resistors fitted...
Audi A3 Sportback 2.0T Quattro S-Line 2007 8P2
Lava Grey, Exclusive Line Black/Silver Leather, Heated Seats, Bose, RNS-e, iPod, Auto Lights & Wipers, Interior Light Pack
Please do a search using ' LED sidelights' and you will find dozens of threads that give you the answer !!
