looking good Jonny mate :)
Cheers Brett, hope you're still enjoying your S3!
After working on Scott's (SWILKO) Sportback I took a liking to the LED numberplate units he had installed. I already have the LED numberplate bulbs installed which are powered by 3 SMD's but I've never been too keen on them as they seem a bit too dim and ugly. These are complete units, not just the bulbs, and are powered by 18 SMD's each.. maybe too bright?
Installed them 1hr ago so I'll be sure to get some night pictures when it gets dark. Such a big difference compared the to the old LED's but if I find them too bright at night, they'll be getting removed.
All about the little touches, I'll be watching this one unfold!
Got a night picture. Not the best photo being a night but you get the idea.
My opinion... WAY too bright, they'll be coming out tomorrow.
Agree J, had them on mine a good while back and i just found them OTT, didnt like the fact i could see the reflection off the rear bumper. Im going for t8ups solution for the my10 cars the non led ones which are a white light but are not so bright. Perfect IMO
Will them festoon fit any where else in the car?
Like the boot?
Edit:=- are they even festfoon? If not question still stands. :)
Got in touch with the company regarding returning the lights and they've accepted my return request so not all is lost! Weren't cheap either; £30!
Normal uprated white bulbs would do the job in most cases I assume. LEDs are too bright as you already noticed. Man I feel like having proper meet up soon, so many new cars on the forum...
As many as possible Johny:P
Good lad :) Who fitted your Cruise Control then :P?
same guy who did Interior pack fitting stokeballon if I got it right. Wish you were based closer to mine:/
Haha, its all good ;) I'm sure we'll meet this year and we can continue our love affair xx
:wub: told you not to tell anyone:lmfao:
Fitted the OEM Bluetooth last night. Spent a good while labelling and re-wiring everything as the loom came with no terminals or even the housing for the microphone plug.
I also managed to get the module behind the glovebox where many people have said it wont fit ;)
Ordered the MFSW yesterday so I'm hoping for that tomorrow or Friday which will enable me to fully utilise the bluetooth.
I love how your car is going forwards and mine is going backwards :P
I wouldnt of stuck it there Jonny, that antenna is way to fragile to risk it getting snapped of, always under the seat mate.
Unfortunately when I was out of stock a few times I had to rip mine out which was the latest version anyway, then install in other cars, real pita, but now a magician at fitting/removal lmfao, I now keep a stock of lol, the actual plastic housing for fitting oem is only £20 from audi, neat little system tbh.
Yeah I spotted the housing in ETKA, not that expensive tbh and worth the buy if doing a full professional job.
Heres the photo:
Kinda looks like its sat at an awkward position against the padding but it sits fine and very much doubt it'll cause strain on the antenna though I will keep an eye on it. I have seen some other antenna installed which is simply a bit of wire on the end of a fakra -- have you seen those?
Yeah as its for my car I decided to order the casing today, so when back will be getting her finished.
Yeah seen those antenna's, call me anal, but prefer oem tbh, peace of mind goes a long way when installing these systems hey fella :)
Indeed it does :) always like to keep things as OEM as possible. Its actually bugging me a little bit that I've put it in the glovebox as thats not really where its supposed to be, I'll probably move it under the seat within a week, haha.
Haha... all about Policing and reinforcing the keeping of OEM :busted_cop:
Nah, all about making sure we dont leave opportunity for things to feck up lol.
Cheers Jim, look very nice actually.. Better than I initially thought they would look!
Fitted the MFSW at the weekend, certainly much easier to use the Bluetooth now!
Also managed to snap up some S3 pedals for a mere £40 today so they'll be fitted when they arrive.
