    Hi all,

    slightly random question I know but was wondering if there are any lights on the exterior handles or mirrors of the A3/S3? i have these on my A6 and where i park at work come in very useful.

    thanks in advance

    No I don't think so, but there are lights on the bottom of the door so when its open it shines on the ground.

    I think the white puddle lights are only with the interior light pack...

    Each to their own but saw the door handle lights on a new 3 series the other week and thought they looked tacky

    i have them on the A6, they are more subtle than the BM's but serve the same function, really handy to light up the ground around the door if youve parked in a dark area.

    disappointed the A3 seems to be lacking some options and features of other VAG cars
