    A3 8P DRL's

    What is the best option to go for in regards to fitting the above? I'd like to keep it as close to oem as I can. I've tried having a look for the official Audi ones but haven't had any luck so far. Any advice on this? Any help would be appreciated!

    Anyone mapped a pd140 that made siron noise and would occasionlly go into limp mode?

    A3 TDI Quattro exhaust options

    So happy with my car at the moment after being off the road for months with a blown turbo! Replaced with a hybrid now! Just had the standard wheels sprayed black and I love them. Just away to pick up my black centre caps and hopefully my black grille will arrive and I'll be super happy! :D
