    Very pleased , only issue i had was with the mic from the old to new.

    Makes it look load better.

    I know this mod has been done loads by other people , and my way was a bit of a plug and play , But with out this forum i am sure Audi would of relieved me of a nice sum !

    And they would of never even known about changing to led's!
    :respekt:

    The mic from the hands free was in the old unit ( if you have blue tooth ) , getting it out was a bit tricky, as said i am learning slowly ! Its really strait forward.

    Picture 1 and 2 show the 2 different units ,

    Map reading lights for one, but the red ambient down lights are what i was after , as they are really nice when its dark they light up the front nicely on long drives it make's a difference ( for me anyway ! )

    There are several threads how to add these on there own , but i just went for the whole unit as , i am a beginner ! plus i had no map lights which will be handy when our new baby comes !

    Morning - Just reading this thread, think I'm gonna go down this avenue as my first mod as it looks really good! You say there are threads about modding just the red ambient down lights? Is this easy? cant find any links etc?
    Cheers
