    NO.............................................................. :tumble: ok ill put some pics up

    you will see where most of the clips are to remove the lights and fittings this is advice only. I am not responsible for any damage you may cause though improper fitting.

    The kit and whats included i went for full interior ( no footwell lights )
    [​IMG]
    Before the visor lights and front dome ( two LED on the visors and three each side for the dome )
    [​IMG]
    removing the visor lights leaver in from your leaft hand side and pop out
    [​IMG]
    remove the backing plate just lever out ( its sharp so mind yourself )
    [​IMG]
    Put back together and pop back in
    [​IMG]
    both sides
    [​IMG]
    front dome there are two clips facing you just leaver out and remove ( turn the light of first the bulbs can be hot )
    [​IMG]
    swap bulb its that simple than put cover back
    [​IMG]
    both done
    [​IMG]
    now the rear dome pretty much the same but leaver out facing away from you ( if your sitting in the back )
    [​IMG]
    50/ 50
    [​IMG]
    front and rear done
    [​IMG]
    Right heres the two buggers ( glovebox more so process for both is the same be careful with the loom )

    starting with the worst the glovebox just leaver out from clip in mine facing the pasenger door. i sugest uncliping the unit and taking indoors to do just remove the black cover and bend the metal bulb holder so you can fit the LED board in. the black cover has space so dont worry about the wires.

    mike, great write up on this, if you dont have the light pack you wont have the red warning lights. Great write up, i will be using this link when members ask about fitting the roof and sunvisors.

    glad you are happy.

    thanks
    Trups

    Hi Trups,

    I'd like to buy the following for my 2008 58 Pre Facelift S3. I don't have the light pack.

    front and rear dome lights £17 - 6 led
    sunvisors - £6 - 2 led
    numberplate £6 - 2 led
    boot and glove pack - £8.50 - 8 led and 4 led custom bulb
    postage is £1.52 1st class recorded.

    I was a bit worried that the Numberplate lights would be too bright but for £6 I'm just going to give them a go.

    If you can let me know how I go about buying / paying for these that would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Trups,

    Just to let you know I received my order yesterday when I got home. Everything in good condition. Kids won't let me fit them until Christmas though as they are a present from them.

    Will let you know how I get on and post some pics when finished.

    Thankyou very much.

    Ok... So just done this on my BE. What a transformation.

    Totally forget these pictures were here and I can now see why my sun visor light won't go back together. Having never taken this bit out before, I prised the plastic part of as it seemed the light unit was mounted inside. Think I'm gonna need to get the old superglue out. Anybody know the part numbers by any chance?

    Thanks

    Boot light is awesome isn't it, makes you realise how poor the std bulbs are. It's as big a step from bulb to LED as it was from candle to bulb! A black carpeted boot on a dark night was a mare for finding anything till I got these in. Loving them!

    All done! I just had a good look at your guide before I went out to the car and also at the guide Trups put up for fitting the glove/boot lights and it took me about half an hour all in. I found it pretty straightforward TBH and would recommend doing this to anyone. :wub: xx

    I'll second that, Warren! I've already nipped out 3 times tonight, just to look at my lovely new interior lights, lol. Lov 'em!! :wub: xx

    Nice one Paullie, makes the interior look fresh doesn't it.

    What did you do with the footwell lights? Did you manage to set the bulbs up to avoid the purple refractions?

    my boot is normally pretty full of climbing gear it so useful to find what you need saves getting the head tourch out. if i couldnt do the full conversion right away i would defo recomend the boot light
