    Cheers!

    The Audi sound system is great. I'd say as good, if not better than Bose on my old 8P S3.
    does it have the setting in the mmi to have sound focused on the driver? think its in >car>esp or ems or something on the left its on the screen where you can change your tone etc...

    So, on to my mods!

    First up is the LED upgrade as supplied by t8ups on here. He's a top guy and I've dealt with him over a few years with my 8P etc. The kits he provides are top quality, highly recommended.

    So even though my S3 has the optional LED lighting kit, the glovebox and door warning lights are still normal bulbs. The footwell and puddle lights are LED, but they only have a 1 LED per module and are not very bright or white. So t8ups suppled me with:

    4 x Red LEDs for the door warning
    4 x Upgraded white LEDs for the door puddle
    1 x White LED for the glovebox

    So far I've just fitted the doors and glovebox lights (footwell LEDs to follow when I get a chance)...

    As you can see from below the Audi OEM LEDs (top) are pretty poor with only 1 LED per module, wheres as t8ups LEDs has 4:



    I forgot to take before and after pics of the red door warning LEDs, so all pictures below have the t8ups ones installed. They are much brighter and more red than the OEM ones, look great!

    Front door t8ups, OEM on rear:



    Again, front door t8ups, OEM on rear:



    All done:



    In the dark:





    Look awesome, much brighter and you can actually make out puddles now! Lol

    Glovebox OEM:



    Glovebox t8ups:



    Happy times, on to the Footwells next....

    Good call on the reversing lights! Need to look in to that. My S3 has the LED lights so don't have front foglights. I have the LED all weather lights in the headlight cluster instead

    Like the look of the blanking plate you've chosen, in my imminent arrival you can't do a smoking pack delete so was considering the VW LED torch that used to come in the MPV's, but not sure if it will fit inside the ashtray with the lid down. Might use this option instead; good find.

    Is the above mentioned light change so easy that just take out the plastic light covers out, replace the bulb and put the plastic cover back on? And that makes about 3minutes per light? I was just wondering if those covering plastics are tight or not to take out etc.

    Sorry to hijack your thread Silky, but I've just done the LED upgrade on my 8V, and the difference is worth it !

    Thanks to t8ups for the LED modules.

    It's not the covers you remove, you remove the actual lamp housing, then disconnect the electrical connector.

    For reference:
    (front = front of car, rear=rear of car)


    White door puddle lamps: Lever out (carefully) from the rear of lamp
    Red door trailing edge lamps: Lever (carefully) out from top of lamp
    Glovebox white lamp: Lever out (carefully) from rear of lamp

    Yes looks a lot brighter. Plus I think from audi the replacement white lights under the door for puddle lighting are only about £7 to replace if you break one like I did. Last stubborn one
