    Help with part numbers for auto lights/wipers retro fit

    Hi guys,

    Just settling into my s3 now but would really like auto lights/ wipers function.

    My car is a 2008 08 3dr s3 with cream headlining.

    I think I need windscreen, sensor, auto dim rear view mirror, light switch and then wiring.

    Can anybody please help me out with part number for the bits I need and also can anybody think of anything I've missed off?

    I may also in the future look to upgrade the wing mirrors to facelift folding/auto dimming ones. Is there any wiring I can do when do the auto lights/wipers retro fit to aid this?

    Cheers

    Rob

    Hi,

    I'm part way through doing this install. Have all the wiring in and tested. Just need to feed the connectors up to near the interior light/mirror area and get a new windscreen.

    I bought a loom from Kufatec which helped with the wiring:
    KUFATEC GmbH & Co. KG - Rainsensing Interior Mirror - Harness - Audi A3 8P 33788

    The wiring part is not as bad as it looks. I think I had to tap in to two existing wires in the Central Electrics (CE) module and the rest were empty which just need a socket/wire adding.

    I picked up a TT (or was it the Cabrio) mirror which I believe/hope should fit.

    Yeah, that list you have is pretty much it. Think you may need a silver circular bracket for the sensor which I just happen to have here which is part number 4F0 907 671 A.

    My TT/Cabrio mirror is 8J0 857 511 4PK (4PK is for Soul Black colour so you would need one in the cream colour I guess, not sure what the proper A3 part number is).

    The rain/light sensor I have is 4E0 955 559 E.

    For the auto dimming wing mirrors there are two wires that need to come from the rear view mirror connector to the door mirrors. I haven't worried about this for now but may route some cable when I come to finishing this off.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    It's more rounded than the A3 mirror. I only went for the TT/cabrio one as I got it for £25 if I remember correctly.

    awesome, cheers for the help guys. Time to start collecting parts then.

    I've got elsawin so I'm going to try and figure the wiring out and maybe make my own loom. If not kufatec here I come.

    As for programming, i have VCDS but does anybody know what, if any configurations need changing?

    Cheers

    just to re-ignite this one.

    I've got the mirror and collecting the other bits at the moment. I'm going to have a go at making up my own loom. Just a couple of questions.

    I'm trying to identify each wire in the mirror. There are 6 in total. So far I've got

    Wire 1 to fuse 4 in dash fuse box.
    Wire 2 to earth to earth point on A-Pillar (not sure whether it's left or right A-Pillar. Anyone know?)
    Wire 3 to on board supply control unit (not sure on the location of this, anyone know? Is it with the fuse box?)
    Wire 4 to both door control modules
    Wire 5 to both door control modules
    wire 6 to ??????????????? (Not sure on this one. Does it need to be connect? if so where?

    next is what gauge wire to use for the loom?

    Can anyone tell me the part number of the connector to plug into the auto dimming mirror?

    If anyone can point out anything I've missed that would be great.

    Cheers

    Rob

    I got the light package with my A3 when
    I bought it last may, it had auto dimming wing mirrors and two weeks ago some
    W*nker hit my mirror while i was parked outside my house ,the cap only had a crack and i wasn't that bothered as i was planning on getting S3 ones this month anyway . My actual mirror was cracked to oblivion and the auto dimming liquid inside the mirror went all over my car ;( . I went to audi and asked them how much for a new mirror ,they wanted £195 for one ,i was like :0 . In the end i just went for a normal one for £30 . If you do go ahead with all mirrors auto dimming then i advise u always put ur mirrors in when u park up .

    Yes mate, just like that. I understand I need to change door control modules as well when upgraded wing mirrors.

    just been going through my parts list and I'm sure I read somewhere that there is a gel pad for the windscreen as well. Does anyone know the part number and have a link to the part I need?

    Cheers
