    Audi Footwell/Puddle/Boot and Glove box 501 LED upgrade

    Here we are proud to introduce the EM Tuning VAG Panel bulb, I thought I would share my storey with you all to see how they were produced

    Having tried several different bulbs out in this unit i found that the light spread of an "off the shelf led" was not as consistent as the stock bulb, so i set out to design a bulb that would fit in the unit where all the bulbs face down and out where they should be. i got my thinking cap on and produced a sketch of what I thought would work, then cut out bits of card and some broken led’s and stuck it altogether and found that I had just designed and made a bulb, Great I thought, but now I had to get the design’s over to the factory to see if they could make the bulb to my spec with the correct canbus specs, at 1st I was told a canbus bulb of this type could not be done, I then sent back an email saying do whatever you can to get some canbus into it so no errors come up or that it would work as I have had problems trying to get a bulb to work in the boot of an A3 as I am sure a lot of you have.

    Pictures were sent back and forth and this bulb was formed….
