    Hi,

    I remember a guy on here who sold LED interior light upgrade kits for the B5. I bought one for my old TQS and it vastly improved the lighting. But I can't remember his name.

    Anyone know if he's still around as I'd like to upgrade the S4.

    I've tried ebay but no one does a full kit as such and I can be bothered buying bulbs from here there and everywhere.

    Thanks.

    Haha. Will do. It's having a full valet tomorrow so do some serious pic taking afterwards.

    I did all the taking out the bulbs thing as the setup is totally different to my FL TQS (the S4 is PFL), but it's s a minefield on ebay making sure they are Canbus, error code free, not from some dodgy seller, not from China that take 4 weeks to come etc etc.

    I dropped a ******* with the TT LED interior lights, buying off ebay. They mustn't be CANBUS ones cos they are really bright initally but if you switch the interior light on while the doors are shut (e.g. to find something/read a map etc) they are super dim. Rubbish.

    Rather get a proper kit off the forum, then I know it's right.

    What cars you got guys?

    Are they both pre facelift?

    if so here is the pricing for the kit
    front dome and boot - £6
    map lights - £6
    rear dome lights - £6
    footwell - £8
    puddle/warning - £16 - red door panels
    boot - £6

    I will do the kit for £39 which is the same price as when i did the group buy a few years back for the B5 owners.

    My kit ordered now. Can't wait to fit them. Make a staggering difference to ambient lighting. I reckon it's one of the best mods you can do for the money.

    You may have 2 lights in the boot. 1 at the top and one off to the side. You'll also have 2 rear number plate lights that you can change, front footwell lights and puddle lights in the bottom of the doors.

    Ah sorry, just re read,yours in an avant not a saloon so probably only 1 boot light

    Just got my kit and fitted it. Wow! What a difference. Can actually find things in the car at night now!

    Massive improvement over OEM.

    Thanks Trups.
