    Hi guys I can 110% say that his wiring loom's are spot on and work. I personaly think he buy's them from Audi as they look very OEM!!! If not better. This is a mod well worth the money and would say to anyone thinging about it, to just go and do it.
    Thanks again robin for all your help.

    Yes I bought mine off Robin first time round, very good quality. I decided to make them myself this time. Purchased all the parts from Audi

    i can confirm that i certainly do make them myself, i just spend lots of time making sure they are put together well and use nice tape rather than pikey electrical tape :-)

    Lads, just to let you know, the door handle LED is now in pin 17 in my 2009. Voltmeter reads 3.5V. And of course I had to add 8 to the current coding.

    Hi,I have read through this thread and was wondering if the retro fit kit would fit my 2006 b7 A4?
    I saw the post by Robin saying that a couple of wires were longer.
    Could anyone confirm if this would be possible?

    Many thanks Tony

    Sorry for delay,am I right in saying that the looms will power up the new lights under the doors(to be drilled and fitted) and also convert the red reflectors into a red light?or do the reflectors stay as a red reflector?
    If so do i need to buy 4 light units or 8?
    Are the part numbers that are at the start of this thread the same for a A4 ?

    Many thanks

    4 looms
    4 white lights
    4 red lights

    Front Door: pin 13 & 21

    The original post says that the grey connector uses pin 1 as power and pin 2 as earth. Can we just use pin 2 to connect to the puddle lights? Or do we have to tap into the 4 pin connector for the earth?

    Also I have sportback which pins do i need to add for the rear door puddle lights?

    Also from May 2007 there is a wiring change.

    Warning lights are now on pin 18 and you can pick up an earth on 19.
    I believe he is talking about the fronts when he refers to the wiring change.

    Hope this helps..

    The engine ECU doesn't control the door controllers so you will have no problems fitting the lights to the newer A3's.

    I have supplied a few looms to people with 10MY cars already and they have had no issues.

    I see what people mean on the quality of the harnesses, very nice fitted mine last night with some LEDS

    In case anybody's interested these 501/194/T10 Anti Bulb Warning Xenon White Wide Angle 4 Leds (B) by Ultra Leds U.K LEDS.

    Whilst not as cheap as some of the ebay ones, they do fit correctly and are working with my MY2010 A3 without having to mess with resistors etc. These ones are roughly double the brightness of a normal bulb, they do sell a normal brightness version too.

    I wished my A3 came with these from the factory.. but I guess I might need these kits soon. Would compliment well with the rest of my LED lights. Probably need all three of em! Though, do you ship worldwide?

    Hi Alan

    The looms will also fit A4 avant doors, both the front and the rear. I have supplied a few A4 owners with the looms and they have been fitted with no issues.

    I don't do footwell light looms for the A4 as i believe that the feed for the lights come from a water tight sealed control unit which i don't reccomend opening up.

    Alan you have pm.
