    For those thinking of DRL's or Fog Grill Mods - here's some I tried earlier!

    If anyone on here is thinking of adding or changing their DRLs, or indeed modifying their fog light grills - I've tried a few variations over the years and so thought I'd share some of them with you.

    Here some of mine, roughly in order - and yes it is all the same car:














    I've let the photos do the talking, and there's no need to tell me most of them look a load of sh*te I'm quite aware of that

    Jesus, thats alot of changes!

    Don't like any of them tbh apart from the ones you have now, look the most OEM. Love the RS6 grille though.

    And the latest LED tailights look good, but I think you need to smoke them so the edges blend in a bit.

    I guess I must agree, they're the only ones that have stood the test of time.

    Come to think of it, one set only lasted long enough for a photo!

    It's just what's known as a filler plate like this one EuropaParts.com: Front Plate Filler (A4 B7, Grey) - 8E0807287D1QP

    I just located a part number online and my local Audi dealer ordered one in for me

    The fogs are H11 HIDs

    The DRLs are wired separator, as in they're not on the oem DRL circuit

    im a massive fan of the led rear lights, very modern and well suited to audis i think...just not a fan of the price

    what bulbs did you use for your oem drls? (second pic down)

    ive been looking for a blue xenon led but can only find white. also did you have to put your own resistors in or were they integrated in the led?

    They were just a pair of white ba15s LEDs off eBay, but that was about 4 years ago so can't recall exactly which.

    I had to wire in separate load resistors to stop the day warning

    Well, did take about 6 months of looking before I found them. Thought there would be loads more interest, but I was the only bidder.
