    Just received my LED DRL's and have installed the resistors so I dont get the annoying :mad: bulb failure light on the dash. Have to say it was damn freezing :cold: fitting them in sub zero temperatures.

    So I thought I would share a couple of pics ive just taken (sorry dont know how to re-size:ninja:), all comments very welcome :sly:


    Up close:

    Just DRL's:

    Ah cool
    How easy is it to solder the resistor on?

    I'm confused, where do these fit then? The link is for some reverse bulbs? I assume pre facelift Xenons had DRL's then?

    If you buy these from Halfrauds:

    Halfords | Prism Amber LED Bulbs 343

    And just use the resistors from them, they are literally a plug and play resistor and will take you about 5 mins with no soldering needed :thumbsup:

    Yeah, the pre-facelift Bi Xenons are the same as the S3's so have got a DRL bulb where most have a main beam bulb :yes:. They are listed as a reverse light bulb as the DRL bulbs are the same as most reverse bulbs :eyebrows:


    Youve got to love a bit of bodgery :p, works really well and was really simple :w00t:

    I'm guessing these just replace the side light bulb?

    Cheers, yeah they really look amazing in the day, I just really want to change the settings via vagcom (hint to anyone local) so that the rear lights are on with the DRL's.

    They replace the Daytime Running Light bulbs, the side light bulbs are different. As far as I know only A3's with Bi-Xenons have these exept for the 8P3.

    I've had a look at mine and no they aren't the bixenon, they're just normal bulbs :(
    My bumper is exactly the same as yours so I'm guessing I'll just have to buy the bixenon headlamps...;)

    wait I'm confused..

    It looks to me that you're showing sidelights.

    like so... ( i know my aren't bi or single xenons.. but that's where my confusion is! I don't know any different to reflector units or the new style DRLs)

    can you take a pic of your light unit without any lights on?

    Yeah ive also got LED sidelights, im abit of an LED whore :wub::wub: haha. My old Ibiza Cupra didnt have a normal bulb on it :eyebrows:

    I want to do the number plate lights next, just unsure which bulbs to get as i dont really want to have to fiddle around with more resistors :blink:

    The X shape thing is the DRL and you can just about make out the side light in the top left :salute:

    The big differance is that the buld on the far left (Xenon) does main and dipped beam, so Audi have replaced what is the high beam bulb on yours with a DRL :thumbsup:

    IIRC, the MY10 CE module is more fussy about bulbs

    Ye tried about 5 different pairs now. Given up. Did have some nice ones but the bulb warning did my head in. Apparently u can change the resistors which will then work but means messing around soldering. Id rather plug and play.

    Thanks for clearing that up...

    Though that brings me onto the next question.. Why the need for sidelights aswell as DRLs on the front if the DRLs are as bright as they are and in the same place?
