    Right - another update. PRI are waiting for confirmation from Japan as it looks like the bulbs will be air freighted across. Will again let you know once I hear more - thanks for your patience chaps!

    Dunno Marc - hope not!

    Sounds like the bulbs were going to be sent by sea and then Japan decided against it.

    Can you cancel mine as pretty sure they won't fit the 335 coupe. :)

    Nathan,
    Are we taking bets on which will happen first - we get the PIAA bulbs or Matt gets your tail lights installed!

    now now Mr, lol

    I could have an influence on this, lol Well if my A3 comes back from the stealers before the weekend Nathans lights will be taking a back seat as i've got my rear light to fit, xenons to fit, folding mirrors oh and SDS.
    I am nearly there, just need to compare the wiring I have done on Nathans already to what the german guy did

    Sorry, couldn't resist a gentle dig! Give me a shout if you need any help with the SDS - I can point you to a disc image of the SDS hacked SW0650 on my site and run you through the microphone rerouting if needs be.

    The new facelift version of the A3 uses normal H7 halogen bulbs for the DRL's in the non-Xenon/LED headlights that are standard fit on all but the S3, so fitting 'whiter' bulbs should be less of a problem. Perhaps even the factory-fit ones will be OK especially as they are decsribed in ETKA as 'extra-long life bulbs'.

    Yep, will happen at some point, still waiting on news that bulbs have arrived....

    I wouldn't bother with the indicators though, just get some Philips Silvervision instead which do the job nicely and are a fraction of the PIAA price.

    I'm on hols now for the next couple of weeks, so will do a chase up on my return if there is no more news.

    The Silvatec jobs from halfrauds also do the job. My brother has some in his GTI. Think they're only a fiver or 7 quid a pair.

    We're still waiting on the bulbs to land so red can get a price for them. nothing has been ordered so there's plenty of time to jump in.
