    Hi everyone. Was thinking of getting some front footwell lights fitted to the A3 as it currently has none. Is it a simple case of finding a bulb holder and sticking a bulb in there or is it more complicated than that?

    Its a 2004 pre facelift model.

    many thanks.

    Yes I bought the looms off Robin A3 and fitted them to my 2008 A3. Fairly straight forward job.

    I have just fitted them to my A4 but decided this time to make the looms myself. Robin does (or did) make them for about £30 and they were excellent quality. I decided to have a go and make mine myself this time.

    Robin's guide is here:-

    http://audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=58215&highlight=puddle

    You will need 2 repair wires (part number 000979133 (£1.30 each)), i further repair wire (part number 000979010 (£2.30 each) and 2 flat contact connectors (£1.65 each) also about 4 metres of cable and a roll of cloth tape. (All prices subject to VAT). A good place to get cables etc is from here (quicke delivery):-

    http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.eu/VWP-onlinestore/home/homepage.php

    Also of course are the lights themselves - (part number 8D0 947 415 (£6.80 each +VAT)

    (The part numbers quoted are for an A4 but they are all the same parts and the same price just a different 3 digits at the front!)

    If your no good with a soldering Iron, then Robins looms are definately worth getting
