    ok...picked them up. had some issues with fitting but at the end managed to make them work without errors on DIS. i've noticed that the contacts are little shorter than a3/s3 ones and i had to straighten angled ends of contacts to make them reach to the cars contacts, it took me few times to get them right, also they must be screwed tight otherwise it could show error. after that everything worked well :D
    looks good.

    I think as a rule of thumb if the 10th digit on your vin plate is a number they will work, if it is a letter then they will throw up the error. To help find your 10th digit, the 7th and 8th digits are either 8L or 8P.

    Hi, are you saying there is a setting in VCDS that prevents the DIS error ?

    Cheers.

    Any chance you could elaborate on that, maybe a screenshot ?
    I know this is the case with LED puddle lights but not found a setting for number plate lights.

    Just got mine today in the post from Stoke Audi for my 56 reg Sportback and they even included 2 new screws which I asked for as my original screw heads were badly worn. I had real trouble getting one of them off, but got there in the end. Sadly I have stratched the plastic surrounding trim slightly, however the new lights look great. I had retro LED bulbs before and the Audi bulbs give a slightly purer white glow compared to a slightly bluey white of the retros.

    The new holders clicked into place notrelying at all on the screws compared to my old ones which didn't sit flush.

    I am really pleased and glad I forked out the extra few £££ even though I'd already upgraded from the original yellow bulbs.

    It's hard to get a true colour balance in the photo, but this is pretty close.

    Clearly see the need just to open out the prongs a tad (second photo).
    Being as the led's are for the A5 number plate light, the housing must just be that bit narrower.

    Just tried this no joy :sob: The right one seems to work sometimes. When I start the car, it dies, and I get a warning. Any ideas? 53 plate

    Take them out again and turn them upside down on a flat surface and compare the old light against the new led one's.
    Your'e looking at the difference in height of the prongs - just prise them out a bit so they compare against the old.
    About an eighth of an inch should do it.
    Clip them back in again they should now make a proper contact within the housing on the car.

    Take the left one out again and double check the height is correct once more.
    Also check they are seating flush and do click into place.
    You could possibly check the left one in the right hand holder just to see if it does actually work.
