    Hi All
    Got home from work about an hour ago and a nice set of LED number plate bulbs had arrived :)
    Just been outside in the heavy rain fitting them.... these things cant wait for a dry day can they?
    Next door neighbour looking at me out of his upstairs window. Probably thinking, how sad is he??
    Little do people understand how the mind of Audi owners work!!
    Anyway, what a great improvement, even in the day light, I want to get replacements for all the others now (interior)!!
    Pic below, car needs a good clean :unsure:

    Yeah I would like to do something with the headlights sidelights etc, but other than upgrade to the expensive lights that the black edition has etc I dont know what you go for.
    What bulbs have you got coming for yours?

    thanks dave!

    I assume they just pop in to the place the other bulbs were - nothing more complicated?

    just trial and error mate sorry best knowing tho cause you sound a 2at when you fone up moaning that they dont work and they ask you if you tried them both ways round as i did years ago turned them round worked great a lot of the bulbs can be bought of ebay very cheaply for the interior and num plate and sidelights and most of them dont need to be canbuss bulbs either most are 42mm fastoon led, or 501 led push fit, and the map lights are ba9s fitment led

    Are they just a straight replacement for the existing number plate bulbs?
