    Splicing into interior wiring loom for illuminated scuff plates???

    Splicing into interior wiring loom for illuminated scuff plates???

    Been a while since ive done it and last time was on a 95 fiesta. Door pin switch should habe an earth and live. Just splice into those and the illuminated sills should light up when the door is open.

    Just a tip, I found a mate and loaded his picture up and the link I then sent him loaded up with his photo enlarged! Even easier to find that way!

    Splicing into interior wiring loom for illuminated scuff plates???

    I would assume it has a door pin switch to illuminate the interior lights when the door opens. Perhaps the easiest place to splice into is that? It's only going to power when the door is open so ideal for that application. I have been thinking of adding some footwell lights and that is where I...

    Exactly why I sealed mine up first! got some MADCOW wheel sealant too which is a spray on wipe off that a detailer mate swears by. Will be using that for maintenance washes etc.

    Pretty much identical! Loved them since I first saw them on an a4 avant! AITP with all the different examples like them made me seriously want them! Well done on the guess based on that rubbish grainy picture I posted!!!

    So I had to hold back on responding as I noticed I was at 199 posts, so post number 200 had to be special! And here she is!! They are 1AV ZX1'S, not heard of them before but best way to describe em is Vossen reps.

    Air Filter Cone

    Just read that yours is a 2.0 tdi. No real benefit of a cone filter on that to be honest with you. There is another thread similar here. http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/cone-filter-on-a-2-0tdi.337219/

    Air Filter Cone

    Will likely need to remove the airbox to give it room to sit and probably an adaptor/silicon hose to connect it to the intake mate.

    So new 19 inch wheels and tyres arrived yesterday. Seperate deliveries so getting them fitted and balanced etc today. Spent last night applying a couple of coats of Poorboys wheel sealant to the barrels and will do the rest of the wheels on Saturday with a winter prep clean/wax etc. Should be...

    Passenger side aircon issue

    Is the air blowing at the same strength/speed both sides? if so could be a problem with a "mixer flap" if our cars have such a thing but not sure as I've never stripped a dash out of a b8 before. Very common on mercs as they have a number of motors and linkages behind the dash which controls a...

    Why do Detailing on an already excellent finish. Should Valeting be enough?

    I work in a Land Rover dealership, and love taking care of my own car. To be honest 9 times out of 10 the cleaners are sub-contracted and are essentially the same as your £7 local spit and shine in a superstore car park! As suggested above don't take out the paint protection, definitely get...

    19"s.... all because of AITP! :S

    They aren't an original look as I'm sure I saw plenty similar at AITP but I have loved them since the first time I saw them on a b8 saloon!
