    Daytime running lights

    My S4 Avant (06) has daytime lights (only just realised after 2 weeks) but I would like to fit the LED style ones on the newer Audi's.

    I know there are various kits on the market, can you get inside the headlight to fix the LED's and use the same wiring loam?

    Cheers
    R33P.

    You would need to bake your lights in the oven to melt the glue so you can remove the glass as they are a sealed unit , I know of a few members on here and other forums who have done this.

    You can get ones already converted which look good , there are lots of threads on here about this including where to buy the better quality ones from .

    You can go to Audizine forum and find a guy called Fly3000k who takes your headlight and makes them but there roughly £300 and you'd probably be best buying 2 spare headlights off ebay and sending them, if not he might be able to sort something out for you but this is no cheap or easy mod. unless preppared to spend a fair bit i'd probably just forget about it.

    or you could have them fitted to your fog surrounds like mine?

    Much cheaper.

    Fog surrounds sound a good idea, how does that work mate?

    Where you based? I know a guy that can do them for you way cheaper than the headlights job, basically you drill little holes into the fog surrounds and insert LEDs then seal them.

    check out my build thread for a picture.

    Alternatively, you can replace the lamps with LED versions and get pretty good results - make sure you get can bus friendly ones though!

    Does the S4 have the same foglight surrounds as the standards S Line?
    2009 A4 2.0 TDI (170) Avant S Line Exec. ​Quartz Grey, S Line suspension, Bluetooth phone prep low, AMI, DAB, Symphony III, Leather/Alcantara, rear sun blinds, heated/dimming/folding mirrors and cruise control. Mods so far: BBS LM (reps), needle sweep and dipping mirror on reverse. To come: spacers, rear window tint and badge delete.

    If you have drls, you have xenons. I wouldn't be messing with them if it were me. Dammed expensive to replace if you feckup splitting the lens from the housing.

    There's a few grill options you can consider here:

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