    I could never make up my mind what looked better A3 or TT, but what I'd like is to illuminate them with a circle of LEDs

    if the LEDs are under the surround and only peer through the exterior gap it could look cool like a low light ring

    but might get a bit too distracting at night

    dont wanna start dancing everytime the lights are on

    & I know exacly where to get those led's as they use on another part of a car I used to have & run them from the night lighting circuits

    Me parts guy has a job tomorrow now, lol.

    You'd be lucky to get them under the surround tbh, but I've gotta take one out anyway to realign the sliding gates so I'll check.

    only mod i would consider for the vents would be the vent gauge but not sure if theres much point in a diesel would be more aesthetics

    The thing is the older 01-03 8L's had backlit vent dials so why they didnt come up with something for these is beyond me.

    Are there any others about rather than the AWE tuning one for the A3 as i think it looks a tad tacky
