Hi Guys and Gals,

I was wondering if anyone on this forum has the ambient lighting in their Q2 RHD. I'm looking to retrofit this along with a load of other stuff. Personally I find the cabin a little dark...I even enabled the footwell lights to stay on and its still dark.

Thanks,
Cal

Hey mate!

That looks amazing! I trying to source the parts at the moment, although I need to figure out the wiring etc...this will be the hardest part. :(

Thanks,

I think it might be a big job, especially if you want things like led`s for the reading lights. I know in the A3 it’s a big job. The main assembly in the roof also has a couple of bulbs that glow downwards that provide lighting, that would be hard to retrofit if you dont have it. The front dash panels are removable as you can get different colours but that’s without the ambient lighting so you would need to source the wiring. You could prob use the footwell lights source to wire up door handle lights perhaps? The sills also light up which is nice.

Thanks for this, its a weird one because I already have the interior LED "touch" lights with the illuminated "S-Line" door sills and footwell lights. I'm just looking to do the dashboard and centre console.

That’s Audi options for you! All over the place and most don’t make sense. I see what you want though, should be easy enough. It’s just the 2x leg parts and then 2 trim bits that should in clip easily. They are the same design as the ones you have now so assume they clip off and in again, only then in between you have to add wiring.

I know right, Three Audi's later you'd think I'd learn. but in theory it shouldn't be hard at all...Its just figuring out the wiring, coding should also be simple.

It's not easy to find RHD drive ones, my best bet is to find a Vorsprung or Edition1 salvage car. I think I've located one, although Il'l find out more tomorrow.

Think it was an option on early models to from what I’ve read, I can’t seem to find any part numbers online for it which is odd!

update. Part number for centre console

Send me a pic of your current console and I can compare with mine. I think the little tray near the cigarette lighter is different position but you might be able to strip it and use the parts you need and attach to your current set up
