    They look good.

    I've done mine - but by 'tricking' the Quattro.............I snook them in whilst it was asleep!



    Let us know how you get on with those ones.

    I've also updated the lamps 'in' the boot too!

    Got them on mine and working fine. Resistance is built in so no extra's required.

    Give Rob a shout over on the 'other' forum.

    Rich, What rating resistors did you use in parallel with your numberplate Leds?? OHM/Wattage

    I'm sorry mate - didn't note it down.......

    Why don't you remove a bulb and temporarily wire the resistor in it's place - if it's the right resistance - you won't get a code when you switch your ignition on.

    LOL I replaced the standard festoon with a red led, then used two existing holes in the boot lid to mount a couple of 382 led bulbs I had spare

    Just fitted my ones today, must say the new bulbs are slightly longer and a bit of modding to the bulb holders was needed, but heres there look now

    Mine arrived in the post today also. All fitted and look sweet.

    Like Turkster said, a little bit longer than the originals but just some bending of the clips of the holder to make the contact and job done!

    I got mine from e-bay. I read on a different thread that someone bought the ones from your link and they threw a bulb error up so they returned them for a refund.

    At the bottom of the page you link to, it says "Please note these will not work on Audi A4 B6 B7 Models", so I would suggest buying elsewhere...

    Just a quick question, do these LEDs just fit in the normal bulb holder or does there need to be any soldering etc?

    Is there anything that would give me less light? I couldn't think of anything worse than lighting up my rear number plate for the world to see. Come on guys, surely there's more exciting things than number plate LEDs...lol

    it's not the so much the increased light, it's the colour of the light that makes it a better option...

    fitted them and still have the error code though....

    I thought abuse would follow after my comments, glad there is someone wih the same F- the police mentality!

    Have you seen these number plate flippers/hiders you can obtain? Very useful on your bike, not so helpful on my tailgate....sod it, I might just remove my front 1....I've got black and silver plates which the police don't like. They have tried to fine me twice but there isn't a specific offence code that covers it only font size, shape and spacing which mine conform to. Even had a letter of apology when I appealed a fine! Haha, Craig 1, Police 0....for now lol
