    I'm such a sucker for those wheels. One day I will own a set. Are they reps or oem?

    The indicator/hazards running lights seen above can be activated in VCDS. Brightness at which they stay on can also be chosen. Not too sure how to do it myself, may have a play about with it at the weekend, but I know it can be done.

    They are activated via VCDS. I do not remember the coding right now but I'll check and come back with details.

    As stuartm has said, you can do it both ways. The Red A3 you're thinking of is Fran's.

    How does it work is it like a feed from the side lights or just run as a drl setup, does look very smart though.

    Just started de-badging my 2006 A3, plans are to replace the front grille with a black S3 style one to ditch the grey and chrome one thats on there at the moment, this is ordered and should be arriving next week, replace the chrome emblames with gloss black and replace the silver S-Line badges with black ones.

    *Edit - Black S-Line side badges now fitted.

    On a side note can anyone suggest where I can get a replacement rear valance as mine has a great big hole cut in it for a tow bar that was on there when I brought the car.

    lovely car mate, just one question was the my11 lights plug and play or have to modify them? As I have a 2005 A3.

    Cheers pal

    Ye it's plug an play so simple, get a flat screwdriver and unscrew the fixings inside the boot and just pry the lights away gently and put the new lights back in the way you took the old ones out. No coding or anything needed just as simple as that.

    Makes the car look 10x better :)

    They sure do make a difference, look a lot better too in my opinion. Glad they are plug and play with no coding too.

    thats no problem mate, after I posted I thought it might be on air. I'm running coilovers and struggling to adjust it without taking the swing arm off again. Was just to see how you did it mate :)
