    Hi T8ups
    I have just sent you a pm regarding the supply of LED replacement bulbs for my 2013 A4 Avant BE. I specified a LED interior light pack but only half of it is LED!!😠

    I am seeking LED bulb for the interior lights only, including vanity mirrors. Looking forward to your reply😉

    I have just carried this out. Rear under seat lights are an absolute pain to get out, and drivers footwell was difficult due to the Audi lead being so short! Very happy with the new look, looking so much cleaner.

    Top marks to Trups for the kit, and quickly sorting out the lights I broke!!!

    I found the boot light to be right pita, had to bend the metal tabs to slot the LED board in, then press hard for the pastic to go in, at one point the black wire came off the PCB board, had to strip the wire and solder it back on!! what a nightmare, but got it done in the end.

    Could anyone tell me where can I order those strong footwell LED lights?

    The OEM footwell LEDs are in a shape that I haven't seen on the stores

    Hi,

    Thanks for your guide. I am wanting to put LED's into the red reflectors on each door. What type of LED's do I need to buy for these? As websites don't normally list it for the red reflectors only got glove box, trunk, puddle, reading, dome and map lights.

    Thanks,
    K.

    I can supply, they are £8 per pair plus postage for my LED panels

    Yes that's a shame on the kits you can find online, they don't supply them but they make a huge difference to the kit.

    Got the full LED kit from t8ups, and have a problem fitting the rear interior leds. Removed the bulb cover not problem, but how do you get the little monkeys out? Trying to use a pair of thin nosed pliers but they keep slipping off

    leave the unit off so the bulb is cold, get some tape and make yourself a loop then stick the tape to it nicely and then pull. :)

    Thanks Daggerit for the guide and T8ups for the LED's (non-lighting pack). The B8 Avant now looks far sleeker and up-to-date.
    Lights were good quality and fitment guide was spot on.
    Recommend this mod to anyone thinking about it.

    I fitted the full pack today and very happy, a bit of a fiddly job but makes the car look a lot flashier!

    Now plug in your Carista app and set the footwell lights to stay on when the engine is running. Makes the interior a cool,place when driving at night.

    Send t8ups a direct message and he'll sort you out with some good quality ones. I never had any issues with mine the whole time they were installed, right up until I sold the car.

    If they have an issue I'd imagine he'd be more than happy to work through things with you!

    Just click on his name and there will be an option to send him a message. Sometimes his inbox is full but just keep at it if so.

    Failing that you can go to emtuning.co.uk and fill out the form there as that's his shop.

    EM Tuning supplied my lights (see pics above) These LEDs give a day light, white light affect which really picks up the silver & chrome of the interior.
    Great improvement!
