    These S4 LED systems look really good I think, wonder if anyone has done a similar thing with an A3? Only issue would be the lights in the clock face like handbrake or traction control I suppose.

    Do you plan on fitting a bigger turbo? As you have the gauge and a hell of a lot of Intercooling going on there?!
    Also how'd do find the Torque Arm insert helped with fast shifting, and the BSH throttle pipe upgrade?

    Although off-topic: Not much of a bigger turbo. I'm planning going with K04 Turbo kit from AWE Tuning. Not going too crazy on power mods. Even with the current mods, I may actually think it's enough.. or until I'll get bored again! :D The Torque Arm Insert really does make a difference in shifting. I think I felt like there's literally no more delay during shifting. Not sure if the BSH Pendulum Mount helped anything with the TAI fitted as I got them installed at the same time.

    Correct, but the bulb can be changed to any other bulb/color as they are Wedge Bulbs. Not quite matching to the dash TBH. I'm going to look for one when this one burns out.

    Feck me, in no rush then lol!!!

    I must admit I prefer the more 'stealthy ' boost gauge installs myself.

    Well, AFAIK with these NewSouth Gauges only though. Don't think it's the same with other boost gauges.

    Have you checked Podi? IMO they're the Pods for Audi.
