    B&O Speaker Lights

    Hi

    I've got s 63 plate A3 Sportback with the B&O system and interior light pack (the two together look very nice driving at night).

    Anyway, the front speaks are lit as you'd expect with the B&O system, but the back speakers do not light up at all. They look identical and it looks like the light strip is there on the rear speakers but cannot get them to light.

    Played with all the settings in the car, front zone, rear zone, footwell, all etc...

    So, is this all in vein, or are the back speakers not supposed to light up anyway!?

    Stevo

    Sadly the lights are only in the front grills.

    I'm hoping you can retrofit just the B&O speaker grills

    Yep, the interior light pack makes the cabin look really classy. The car looks great to drive at night, and the B&O speaker lights look awesome.

    Even the standard interior roof lights that come on when you stop the engine or unlock the car etc. look really good. Its a really clear white light, and it just looks so much nicer than the standard ones.

    Also the red lights in the doors and the footwell lights etc. make a big difference. £170 definitely well spent

    I would love it if you could. Does anyone know the answer to this? It would have been better if Audi made the LED strip a standard fit on all the speakers.

    Looks awesome, I've gone for the B&O light pack too. Pretty happy if it looks like that.

    The demo car at Derby has B&O and it really is epic.

    The LED white strips on the speakers are very nice actually, not tacky at all - subtle but remind you every time you see them that you've spent £750 on hi-fi for the car!!

    The led strips are a real classy touch. Never seen them on car speaker grills before. LED's really have changed the industry lately.

    When I sat in an A1 at Leicester a few days so I noticed that it had nice bright white LEDs under the drivers doors when they were opened, as puddle lights.

    Does the A3/S3 have these when you buy the LED interior light pack??
