    Cool My A3 Intro : )

    After a couple of weeks of reading/stalking, I thought i'd make a brief introduction.

    I'm the owner of an 09 White a3, 1.9tdie. But after driving the beauty for roughly around 2 years now i've become a bit bored as of late, so through my online endeavours I came across this forum.

    From what i've read and seen, it looks like you guys have a fantastic audi community here, and hopefully can blend my way into it aha.

    What i've got at the moment.
    Just the rnse mk1 i believe, looking to upgrade to the mk2 and get the bluetooth fitted while i'm at it.
    multi function steering wheel,
    ipod prep and the rest.

    So really just looking to mod the a3 i guess.
    i've really wanted the led drl's on the front cos i think my existing yellow's look tacky, but after reading around, correct me if i'm wrong, but it's not a cheap mod ? and i might aswell change the car ?

    Will post some pics up in the morning when i get a chance :-)

    as yours is an 09 you should be able to just replace the headlamps, adapters for bi-xenon and then code the car, some of the more experienced guys will come along soon and explain it soon tho. Rich has recently done the upgrade on his although he did upgrade his whole front as he had an older model

    its a bumper off job, replace headlights with the LED type, fit kufatec adapter (some here dont like kufatec and will wire in their own made cables) and wire into the central electronics under the steering wheel, then code in to finish.

    Headlights from ebay, look for a set that comes complete with bulbs and ballasts.

    Cables from Kufatec - not 100% but i think these should do for your model car - KUFATEC GmbH & Co. KG - Xenon/HID Headlights - Adapter- Audi A3 8P & 8PA Facelift

    For coding you would need someone that has VCDS to do for you. Where abouts are you? There are a few people here including myself that can install and code it for you.
