    Hi
    Can someone kindly help me out here.. I've googled and searched for info but I can't find any straight answers as things go off topic etc ect.. So I'm hoping someone with a list of part numbers and knowledge will come along :D

    First of all my front interior light looks like this..without any individual map lights and no ambient led,s

    So will this fit?

    I gather its a straight fit with just plugging in a module to run the LED ambient lights?
    Secondly my rear light looks like this
    [​IMG]
    Will this one just plug in and work?

    My car is a 55 plate A3 s-line with the black roof liner and a sunroof so finding parts on ebay is hard work.

    Any feedback much appreciated and if part numbers come my way I'd be grateful :D

    Thanks

    right so the front lights that you have posted is the correct one. it is a simple swap plug and play. nothing else needed, no modules etc the leds just work

    the rear one you have listed is wrong. its from a 8L a3... the one you want looks like this (without carbon fibre)

    Can anyone confirm this? My sunroof has buttons like this:
    GENUINE VW AUDI A3 INTERIOR ROOF SUNROOF SWITCH 8P0 959 561 / 8P0959561 | eBay

    Not the turning switch that is pictured above...

    Would be great if it does work as I have been wanting to get the same. Does anyone know the part numbers compatible?

    That's for the feed back bud I'm gonna keep an eye out on fleebay for the parts. Have you got the ambient lighting? Is it over powering or just subtle?

    I'm sure I saw one on eBay the other day, have a look on there.
    i think they are about £80ish brand new from Audi
    and yah I did the carbon wrap myself on the trims and roof bits... All those details are in my blog (link in sig)
