    Ok got round to fitting the warning and puddle lights on my A4 this weekend and thought id do a how to guide to help any other members if they fancy trying it their selves I was lucky mine worked straight away without coding but you may need to have them coded to get them working on your own car.

    If you do fancy this mod then contact RobinA3 via pm and he can supply the looms you need and the bulb holders and must say and sure most of you would agree the looms he made were top quality


    please excuse the picture quality but i copied them into publisher to get the instructions were i needed them if any wants more detailed pics or a copy of the publisher PM me and i can email it over no probs

    Heres The How To

    Awesome write up, much easier than the way I did it last time! Might give this a go now.

    Do they light up individually? I.E. Only the door you open lights up?

    If you could do a write up for the front and rear footwell lights as well that would be awesome!! ;)

    Very good write up there mate. This is on the cards for me soon. Makes it a damn site easier to do when somebody does it and does a write up. Saves you having to figure out everything yourself :)

    I've PM'd Robin and inquired about the looms. Good price. So they'll be getting ordered hopefully within the next week. In the meantime if you wanna wing over any pics mate, feel free. They'll be much appreciated.

    I have managed to take off the door cover and to my surprize i have seen that my emergency light/from the door edge red one is not connected with any wires(no light installed there).
    Is there a way to put one?

    Another member just fitted my kit to his A4 cab so just in case anyone with a cab is wondering if they will work on their cab - they will :)

    Also the price is £36 per door which includes the loom and the lights.

    I am still trying to suss out the footwell lights and as soon as I do you guys will be the first to know.
