    Hi fellow Audi Strokers

    In the process of converting 06 Sportback (2.0 TDI Sport) to an S-Line version.

    Had a second hand s-line front bumper repaired and resprayed etc, and it looks champion (especially with the big black grille). Well chuffed.

    Here's the problem:
    S-line bumper had to have s-line fog lights and fog grilles, but the plugs that come with the fogs, have a different plug than the plug from the car's lighting system. Hope this makes sense.

    The guys who fitted it, said i would need a retrofit plug wiring conversion kit, which i could buy from fleabay. However, i can't find it anywhere.

    Anybody else encountered this problem?

    Thanks in advance :sos:

    Yeah you can also buy a "repair wire" kit from Audi themselves to do this. You could always bodge them together with bullet connectors then wrap a load of insulation tape round them, job done!

    That is the name mate. It's just a single wire that has the normal terminal ends that fit into the connectors used on the car. There are different sizes though but I'm fairly sure most of them are the same.

    Found this site:

    And on there:

    i used the exising wires - using thin needle or such, you can remove wire from the holder by bending the locking tab back. You can then bend the tab back out and insert it back into the new holder.

    When I did the conversion I cut the old plugs of and soldered new repair wires on.
