    Has anyone tried the Polarg bulbs in the interior light fittings? If they are 10W as opposed to the normal 5W I'm wondering if they would be too bright for interior use.

    Hey Dan, do you not fancy trying the LED bulb sets from EM Tuning (T8ups) for your interior? I ordered a set from him last night and the beauty is they won't cause any DIS errors and have a very low power draw. xx

    I hear what you're saying but I always have this niggling worry at the back of my mind regarding LEDs in terms of will they fail/overheat/fit/error. This is not based on any specific supplier or personal experiences, just forum threads over the years. Call it fear of the unknown.

    I guess I'm old fashioned and with bulbs I know what I'm dealing with!

    I got the full kit from T8rups last week, only got to put in sidelights(to match Diamond vision), interior dome and map lights, totally modernised the car!

    Looks more 2011 than 2007 without looking like a christmas tree like some 2012 Audi DRL!

    Have a look at this thread I started H11 bulbs of the diamond vision flavour

    I got them on Ebay, not sure if there are any left as a usual search doesn't bring them up anymore. Try the link in the above link and see.

    My MY10 with the Polarg's fitted.



    Love them, absolutely perfect.
    (Shot was taken during the day in my underground garage, some natural light)
    Much better than the LED's I had on my old A3, they look OEM.

    My opinion of these super bright LEDs is that they don't look factory/OEM.
    Audi would never release a car with the whole back end lit up.

    These are the Halogen Polarg M28 B1 Hybrid Bulbs, the same as listed in the original post of this thread. They are lovely and pure white - with no hint of blue, unlike the cheaper Ebay ones listed elsewhere in the thread - and as you can see - they are bright enough to light up the whole reg number, but do not light up the whole rear end of the car and the floor, like the LED's. xx

    Just seen the following on a golf gti forum. Apparently this happened to a few people.

    "I'm actually in a similar situation, I purchased a set of the "Polarg B1 Hybrid" bulbs approx 6-8 months ago for my license plate (also tinted blue bulbs), I had them on for no problem. A couple days ago, when I wanted to switch from the blue bulbs to led(with resistors), I found out that the upper part of the housing (contact point to the hatch) was melted. Worried there might be a problem, I switched back to stock bulbs, but then both sides don't turn on and computer gives me a warning. "

    the polarg's are 10w,

    if you look at my post the ones i had sent to me are 5w which are what you get as stock from the factory, they do look dimmer but give the white glow which is what everyone is after.

    when i asked about the 10w from the factory they told me about the heat issues which is why i went for the 5w which hence the price of my upgrade are ALOT cheaper and due to the forum demand i dont want to charge a lot as its you that keep me going and enjoying what i do.

    Thanks

    Before I opted for the Polarg's I did a fair bit of forum homework and for every post reporting any sort of problem with the bulbs, there were another 2 or 3 reporting no probs and that the bulbs lasted for 3 - 4 years. It's like everything, sometimes people have issues with stuff failing and going wrong and most people have none. There are a few posts on here from people who fitted LED bulbs to their number plate lights (no problems whatsoever with any of the bulbs supplied by our man Trups, may I add!) and even the LED's have melted bulb housings in some cases. You fit any mod to your car and you take your chances.

    I checked my Polarg's today as I drive with my tail lights on all the time (and therefore my number plates are lit permanently when the engine is running) and the bulbs and housings are as good as new (PHEW!), but if peeps who haven't bought these already want to err on the side of caution, then I'd advise them to buy from Trups as his are lovely and white (not blue like some posted in this thread) and they are 5W like the OEM bulbs, ..not to mention a darn sight cheaper than what I paid to import my Polarg's, lol!!! xx

    Your poor car, Dude . Hope it all gets fixed for you soon. I've got a set of the LED plate lights sitting on my desk, ..was going to fit them today when I was checking my bulb housings, but then it started to tip it down with rain. Will try again next week and see how I like them xx

    EM Tuning Festoon 5W bulbs fitted

    Well when the rain stopped, Hattie having an afternoon nap, I grabbed my buckets and washed the car.

    Now it's shiney again so here's the promised photo from my iPhone 4.




    Huge thanks to Trups, for a prompt delivery, faultless service & product. These lights look perfect against my ibis white gleaming paintwork.

Unfortuantely Audi don't sell the screws separately from the light units, ..think I paid around £11 for a replacement unit. xx

    Just to update on my Polargs, they melted both housings a little. I only noticed because 1 went out.
    I'm back to the originals now and ordered some cheap ebay(5w) ones. Anyone else had any problems? can't see how they could be fitted incorrectly or anything.

    Argh, this is bad news.
    Think I need to go and check mine.

    T8ups, do you have the 5W ones still?
    How much including shipping to Aust?

    Sorry to hear about your Polarg's Eddy, that's not good . I ended up putting mine back in last month after deciding that the LED's were too bright for my liking. I am checking them every time I check the oil and tyre pressures and so far - touch wood - there are no probs. I think it's the luck of the draw with these, some people have probs with them and others have them in for years without issue. xx
