    Hi.

    As some may be aware trying to find a canbus bulb that will work in the B7 A4 and A3 09 - 2012 cars is a problem, a lot of places say that they are error free but don't actually test them selves on a car to see the off the shelf bulbs will bring up an error.

    I have designed a bulb that will house a mini halogen to keep the warning system at bay hidden.

    [​IMG]

    in the pack you get:
    1 pair of LED bulbs (these where designed for the OEM halogen housing like in the picture)
    1 pair of Halogen bulbs (The LED was designed to have this bulb)
    1 pair of Screws (These are torx heads so are harder to round off)

    They are £15 and £2 posted to the UK.

    Any questions then please ask.

    Some info on the Development can be found here - http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-...621-my2010-car-required-led-bulb-testing.html

    Thanks for the PM Trups, really appreciate it. Order has been placed.

    Originally you said about sending them out with spare halogens, but this isn't listed in what's included. Did you go away from this idea in the end?

    Hi Dan.

    Yes I put in the orig thread about the issue with sending spares, as I cant get them cheap enough and cant find a supplier looking to give me enough discount ( I even offered to buy 2000) so I cant afford to send these out, if I did I would have to hike the price up by a few quid, and lets face it, I cant see this little bulb blowing every 2 weeks so there is no need.

    Also I need to sell over 100 pairs to break even on this project, i've done it for you guys who have the funny BCM's and its not really about making the money on these, just want to be a 1 stop shop for lighting to the members in the Audi World.

    Hope that's ok.

    trups

    Not a problem at all, that makes perfect sense.
    Thanks for the explanation.
    If I ever get one of them blow then I don't mind buying one off you anyway. It'll only be a few quid so not the end of the world.
    We all appreciate the time and effort you've put into this. :salute:

    Have you ordered 2 pairs for a reason or was this accidental?

    This is how the bulbs need to be fitted into your holders, I have made them so they are offset to utilise all the space inside the Lamp to stop any halogen light going through.

    Mine have arrived :icon_thumright:

    They're much better made than they look in the photo's. Very professional.

    Hopefully fitting them this afternoon if a) the rain holds off and b) the wife hasn't got any plans.
    I'd do it now at work, but I haven't got any Torx bits here.

    Mine arrived this morning too, can't explain how much I was looking forward to fitting these bad boys!

    Fitted them, look the business but the dam error warning came up on my dash! I'm gutted to say the least!

    Mine is a 59 plate, has anyone else tried to fit these yet?
