    Those look SWEET, Scott! I'm so jealous they work perfectly on your car, but well chuffed for you at the same time, lol. Just absolutely love your wheels too! Car is looking hot to trot! :)

    That's right Scott, I tried 3 different options (all said they were Canbus compatible), the light units you have now and 2 other sets of LED festoon bulbs and although they all worked in my car (8P3 S3) they all brought up the DIS bulb out warning. I've only seen one set listed on Ebay with alisting that states suitable for A3's upto MY10, but they were another £30 and from abroad, so didn't really want to risk buying incase I had to send them straight back again :(.

    Wow. Some fantastic shots there Scott. The Bentley rims are the business. I would settle for the akoya silver alright! But I'm taking Fran's side with the red :p

    Gotta say dude, loving your motor, she's beautiful.. Particularly like the centre caps matched in!! One thing tho, is it deliberate that you've blanked bits out of your plate to spell "A-HOL"???????!!
