    Well.. I was very happy with my 2011 A3.. But the interior always felt like it was missing something(s)...! I went for every extra option Audi offered.. Except for the tech pack.. I just felt it was too much money at the time. Now I've finally got around to sorting my moment of being a tightwad out, by treating myself to a 2011 led rns-e mk2!

    So, after much googling, speaking to Audi, eBay, and many many recommendations from you guys on here, I got in touch with our own Nigel (NHN) to supply and fit the rns-e 2 for me.. And a couple of the illuminated Bose speaker grills..

    I've gotta echo what so many others have already said on here: what a top bloke! Thoroughly nice guy, treated my car so well, fitted and supplied immaculate equipment! It's easy to become a member of the N.A.S (Nigel Appreciation Society):)
    if you've being debating on getting him to do anything for you -do it! You won't be disappointed! Cheers Nigel!! :wub:
    Anyway, here's couple of pics of the end result, excuse the iPhone camera..

    Looks really good mate. Glad the Bose grills worked out alright as well. Did you end up using the adapter things I sent or did Nigel have a better way?

    did you wire the Bose on permanent or with the lights ?
    Off topic a bit but are the MY11 door cards wired for the lighting pack ? Looking through etka i can only find one door loom and that seems to be for everything ?

    Everything looks really nice mate, Like the perforated FB wheel :)

    Thanks mate.. The grills are wired to come on with the lights (wired into the ambient lighting in the door handles I believe)
