    Same LEDs as mine! Good choice!
    They look sweet but mind the warning lights will go nuts when you wire them in. Ive not put pay to it yet as it just flashes at you constantly but the beeps dont last long.

    Thats cool. I got told how to sort mine but havnt had the time yet.
    Might get a pair of silvertec indicator bulbs for the LED clusters as the amber bulbs are more noticeable.

    Ha ha yeah I know.

    Would not be for a while I dont think, will probably still do odds and ends.


    Its just I have had the car almost 3 years now and dont know whether to save some mod money and buy something else like an RS2. I may go out of this phase and just stick with the A4 though just have been looking at them and really like them as 1 there are an RS model and 2 could not afford an RS4!!

    Just would be worried I made a mistake and the RS2 was a money pit as my A4 has been really good to me so far. Touch wood! Would love to keep the A4 to and put a bigger turbo etc on it but just dont know at the moment.

    Am also toying with the idea of just selling up and buying a Corrado as that would be cheaper as £3k would buy a pretty good one and I have liked them for ages.

    God knows what I will do!! Least thats off my chest.

    Cheers.
