    I haven't checked today as I got a lift to work, I'll check when I get home.
    If they are still off then I might take them out at the weekend and check the contacts.

    Just checked and when I turn my lights on, the number plates LEDs light up for 5 seconds and then go off.
    Any idea why this has started doing it all of a sudden?

    hm...don't know. didn't have any issue like that. but i know when i did fit mine that i had to extend contact plate ends so it sits there nicely and closes the circuit. and now and then i get the error and they go off but as i've said opening and closing the boot usually solves that for a while :D

    maybe loose contact?

    Update.

    Rather than repost, I thought i would update this post, as it already has the LED photos and part numbers present for the A5 LED', fitted into 2010+ cars, more specifically my RS3.
