    Gotta agree than chrome grill inserts would look bad on a BE or a blacked out grill.

    To be honest I only did mine as the empty grooves really bugged me!

    p.s. Steve1719 - when I said chrome grill inserts I didn't mean the £80+ Audi ones!!! You can DIY for less than a fiver.

    Bit of an open ended question really. Styling, Performance, Handling or Entertainment??

    You've picked 3 yourself that will tide you over, although I fail to see why you'd want a 6 disc if you had AMI.

    As above really a fair bit can be gained with VCDS.

    Do you have Nav or Bluetooth?

    Agreed. An AMI would negate 6cd changer. So is definately a must! I have B.tooth but regards Cruise control.... is it and easy DIY or should i get it done through the stealers?

    LED rear turn signals? Is this a complete cluster replacement mod?

    Led interior lights... any suggestions?

    Sorry for the 20Q's but thanks for all the answers


    ...ps.. whats a vcds hack?

    VCDS is a commercially available tool that can carry out many of the functions of the rather more expensive dealer tool, VAS.

    Ross-Tech: Home

    There are a whole host of 'functions' which can be modified or switched on/off to make changes to your car.

    If you aren't confident with removing the steering wheel and airbag to change the stalk assembly then you'll be fine with the CC fit :racer:

    I've got a 2010 S0line car which has the LED rear clusters .... but only for the tail/brake lights. The turn signals (and fogs & reversing) are all normal bulbs .... and it bugged me A LOT !!!

    I recently got some LED "bulbs" for the rear turn signals off ebay. Less that £3 delivered and they didn't throw a bulb out error (at least not yet!!)

    Lots of choices but the main one is whether you'll do it yourself or want someone to do it for you.

    Places like this for the parts : http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/product_list/c_path/669_324_327/spd/audi-ipod-stereo-interfaces.html

    I think I've posted this before but there is an AMI Retrofit kit available from dealers so it might be worth checking with them on prices and fitting prices.

    I got them from ebee4u on eBay . I don't have a link for the item.

    Please note that I took them out as I got told by a couple of people they were too dim to be seen easily :(
