    That's right Scott, I tried 3 different options (all said they were Canbus compatible), the light units you have now and 2 other sets of LED festoon bulbs and although they all worked in my car (8P3 S3) they all brought up the DIS bulb out warning. I've only seen one set listed on Ebay with alisting that states suitable for A3's upto MY10, but they were another £30 and from abroad, so didn't really want to risk buying incase I had to send them straight back again .

    Haha, too right! I found the listing, defiitely says for A3's from 2010 and they're £35, but if I thought they would work, I might be persuaded to give them a go, ..lol.
