    I have searched the forum but not had any joy and a few mixed comments in other threads so best to ask. All I wanted to know is can anyone tell me if my A3 is canbus or not. Its a 2003 8L TDI Sport. I'm new to Audi's so was wondering if anyone can tell me or if theres a simple way to tell myself.

    Thanks in advance.

    I though all face lifted models (so that includes yours) had a canbus. Hopefully someone will be actually able to confirm it though.

    CANBUS comms on the radio but K-Line for module comms... full CANBUS came with the 8P's

    A3's and S3's have bulb out warnings... not sure how this would work but normally LED type bulbs etc have a resistor or similar to represent load so the warning doesn't appear...

    Good morning mates I hope I will also get advice from you. A while back I converted my lights to HID (Phillips) on my a3 8l 1.8, ever since then I experienced so many issues like the brake lights and number plate lights not working, turning signals not flickering now higher beam also not working only lower beam. How can I solve this issue? TIAa
