You can tuck the wiring into the roof lining and run it along into the corner and then down inside the A pillar and straight into the fuse box. Then you can use a piggyback fuse and come off a switched live. It’s the way most of us here have done it.
There appears to be quite a lip on the discs so maybe would benefit with some new ones. There also seems to be a lot of miles on those pads. I think I'd replace them both and that way you know your all good for the future. it's also a good idea to do it yourself as it's a straight forward job if...
You won't need that expensive plug, just but the same connectors and re join your broken wires. those connectors are really easy to use and are cheap. If you remove your door card and then your speaker you can pull the loom back through to give you the room to make repairs.
Just wondering if anyone has a rear drivers side door lock actuator hanging around ? if so please drop me a message. done the other 3 doors over the years now it's the last doors turn before going round again lol.
As above in the title I have a set of new and unused led puddle lights. These have the smaller plug socket that’s found on the 8v but are easily installed on an 8P using a small harness from @RobinA3 or using your own method.

Any questions feel free to ask.
Also with all aftermarket head units you'll lose some info on your DIS as they won't show radio station, that will only appear on the head unit itself. Some people like the info on the dis and some don't care but just a heads up.
I have in my A3 the led that would normally light up green when you turn on your side lights has stopped coming on, actually it’s more intermittent but off more than on. Can I take this apart, clean and generally have a fiddle or has it had it and needs replacing ?
That's something I never thought of, when I did mine, I went with S3 seats. The person you need to speak to would be Ash187. He runs Audi retrofitters and am positive he'd be able to answer your question.
Nice job,rewarding when doing stuff for yourself. Get yourself a secondhand hvac unit and the looms from Kufatec and the heating seats will be working in no time, that’s an easier retrofit than doing your cc. You’ll just need to code them in once the physical part is done.
If you already have puddle lights on your 8P these would be a easy swap. The lights are identical in size, it’s only the connection that’s a different size but it’s very easy to get a small loom made up to convert from a member here. Contact member @RobinA3 for looms.
