    Is it possible to get lighting under the Ac unit? Has anyone refitted the red light at the front inside door handles? My old a3 8l had a dimmer switch for the light pack..is this available for a 8P2

    Door handle LEDs can be retro fitted as a part of puddle/warning light package but you will need to buy new door handles with the LEDs already fitted, door handles are £40 each.

    Hi Robin...

    i'm just looking for a bit of info on these and not an order....

    Do you know when activating the footwell lights on the 08 pre-facelife 8p2 s3... Do you know if it gives you the menu on the display like the 58 8p3.... The reason why im asking... I put in all the cabling and even wired through a custom oem switch for the ch/lh light feature only to find out on the s3 that it was just a simple case of coding and they appeared on the menu....

    if it didnt i'd just set the brightness high and also included a hidden resistor just so I have constant access to brightness levels without having to go through vcds all the time...? Thanks

    Hi Guys. I have just received a second hand kit from a member on the forum and I cannot get it to work. My car is a 2009 s3 8P facelift (has the DRLs.) I have followed Robins guide to a T, making sure to plug the positive feed into the correct space on the cluster, and I have made a good earth. I have also enabled the footwell lights in VCDS. The lights will simply not come on though. The bulbs are LEDs, would that make any difference? Thanks guys.

    This is doing my head in, making no sense at all. Even tried running a piece of wire directly from the terminal that the number 7 wire would be touching, but no dice. Do ALL the lights need to be plugged in and working for ANY of them to work? I tried touching the end of the number 7 terminal with a face testing screwdriver, and it lit up! But yet when I plug the connector back in, I get nothing.

    Any help appreciated.

    Have you checked the polarity on the led's? Some led's work whichever terminal the +ve is attached to, some don't. (Some change to red).

    I have tested the LEDs outside the car using a spare battery, and there is only one way the units can connect when in the car. They also came plugged in from the previous owner so I dont think its a polarity issue. Thanks for replying though

    Are the LEDs error free versions? Pre 11MY cars don't support standard oem led lights - you will need error free led bulbs.

    To be honest I don't know. Its one of your looms, but I do not know about the LEDs. I tested them all outside the car last night, and only one of them worked! So I took them apart and to say they are a mess inside is an understatement. Total balls of a job they are, not sure where the previous owner got them. So tonight I am going to try plugging in a standard light with standard bulb to see if that's the issue.

    If I only plug a bulb into the drivers side front connector, would it still light up, even if the other 3 connectors are not plugged in to anything?
