    Good luck Trups, would be ideal if you could get the OEM lights to work on 2010+

    Got mine installed today -- as expected there werent any CANBUS faults. Really impressed with the look, fitment and light output and as far as Audi go, they weren't badly prices.. got mine for £15.54.

    Do they come with new screws as my screw heads are pretty shot after playing around with my previous LED bulbs?

    Nah they don't - mine are on the way out too.

    Anyone else having issues getting them working? At the moment only the left one flashes on then goes off again and I'm getting a DIS error. Did anyone have to adjust the metal contacts? Would have thought it would be okay on an 04 car... grr.

    Woo hoo!

    xanderxxx sent me his as they threw the error on his dash.

    Bought them off him for my son but theres no way he's getting these!

    Even the old screws didn't cause any trouble getting them in or out!

    Main thing is, the dash is happy that they're fitted, engine on and dipped beam on.

    Will get a night shot later when its dark

    Hey guys...

    This has been posted before, but wanted to add my 2cents.

    I have got these bad boys on recommendation from Warren and Paulie.

    Audi A3+S3 2009-2011 LED Kennzeichenbeleuchtung weiß | eBay

    I have a 2012 A3 and it doesn't throw the DIS error. You do have to have them sat 100% correct or it does flag up.

    They are quite bright but I have got use to it and they do look really good.




    ---



    Sorry about the pants pics.

    They are quite pricey at £40 plus shipping but I think they are worth it. Wanted to just give you guys some alternatives.

    Installed today with no errors and no number plate lights either??

    So took them off again and checked one of the old light's against the new led one upside down on the kitchen top.
    There's about an eighth of an inch difference in height from the lens to the outside of the connecting prongs.
    So I gently prised the led one's out a bit so they are similar to the old.
    Installed again and bingo!

    No trouble with the screws but would advise a proper seating phillips driver for them (about a six inch long one is perfect) and
    keep a good presure with a thumb on the outside handle and turn with the other hand keeping the driver straight at all times.

    Many thanks to Dave at Stoke Audi - only ordered Wednesday and delivered today!

    I'll get some photo's up later on a Phantom black.

    I noticed when I clipped them into place they didn't seem to work (got worried!) but once the screw was tightened up they work perfectly.

    happy days!

    I'm wondering now but - you don't think the problem on some people's errors lies with no contact being made in the first place?

    It could be actually, in some cases such as xanderxxx the bulb error actually did come up, but the bulb was working correctly.

    Will these fit any other models in particular a B7 A4 and a C6 A6 does anyone know?

    My concern is that one of my screw heads is badly warn and that if I order these they won't work as my current holder isn't sitting flush in the housing due to the screw not going in fully.

    I think I may need new screws? Anyone know the right size to replace and where I might be able to get a pair from?

    I currently have a set of LED Fastoons from T8ups that give a nice white so I'm just wondering what I am actually going to gain from buying these Audi ones, but there is certainly alot of talk going on about them which is just tempting me to buy a set!!

    Some nighttime shots as promised

    I can send the originals if needed, just didn't want my reg on the net

    They have a nice glow against the Ice Silver, not too bright either, just nice. Brings the rear of the car up to date along with the LED taillights

    Very pleased!!!

    Does anyone know anywhere I can get good quality, legal number plates without any text at all on the bottom?

    They should sit flush without relying on the screw - try and push them towards the side without the screw so that the clip slot is fully home and then upwards.

    Correct Rob and forgot to include this in my earlier report.
    If done right they actually should hold up on there own without the need of screws and sort of snap in place.
    Of course don't forget to put in the screws after though.

    My left one pops in and then pops out a second or two after until I screw in the screw. The screw won't go far enough in to make it flush, but the light will work. This is with retro fit LED bulbs, but I read that the OEM LED's need to be flush which is putting me off!

    I probably should just give it go for £20!

    I think I gave the wrong impression when I said they have to be perfect with the screw. After reading, I didn't clip them in fully in the first place so the screw took up the slack.

    Reseated this afternoon and they work fine

    Well worth the ££

    No good here - mines 09 but the MY in the VIN is A for 10 MY. Had to sell them on. This seems to be the 'cut off' point from what I've read so far I'm afraid.

    I don't think i stand any chance of this working for me and my March 2012 A3 sportback.

    I've tried eBay 1 with no luck, eBay 2 with no luck, both from mylitco, who, to be fair offered the eBay 2 link as a free replacement after eBay 1 didn't work.

    After these didn't work, I've tried 4H0 943 021 and 4H0 943 022​ from Audi Norwich due to the hype on here about them, again, with no luck. I've also made sure they are housed tightly.

    All my above efforts have lit up, but also lit up the DIS error. I may just have to live with it...
