    2011 A3 12V switched power in dome light for rearview camera screen

    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.

    Check brake pad light

    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...

    A3 2012 black edition electric fault

    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.

    Sold Audi “rings” puddle lights

    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. £30 inc p+p Any questions feel free to ask.

    Cigarette lighter/12V socket turn off always-on function

    As Leon said above, all you need is a piggyback fuse and loom, something like this and takes just a little while and is really easy to fit. nextbase-dash-cam-hardwire-kit-159302.html

    RNS-E Bluetooth enable telephone

    It’ll all need coding in. I think your best bet would be to find someone with VCDS from the map and ask them to activate it all for you but may be difficult right now with current restrictions.

    LED’s not illuminating on light switch

    Thank you guys for your help. The diagram showing the led’s is great. I’ve had it apart several times but couldn’t really see anything but now I’ll just realised and see what happens.

    A3 8P3 sportback audio retrofit options

    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.

    LED’s not illuminating on light switch

    Hey everyone. 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 ? Thanks in...

    Newbie - looking at an A3 Sline TFSi Q tomorrow!! ADVICE PLS :)

    At that age, price and mileage I think I'd pass on that car, you can probably find a better example. Probably not what you want to hear; sorry just my opinion.

    5w30 or 5w40?

    Get yourself some of this.

    Thank you! Happy day!

    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.

    Thank you! Happy day!

    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.

    Sold Genuine Audi LED Entry Area Light Kit 'Four Rings' Logo with Narrow Plug

    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.
