Alright, there are so many threads about audi LED's, but none of them are just there show the uniqueness of each members design. Some people wrap the whole headlight in LEDs, others, just the bottom, and so on. So everyone who has a unique LED, post it. I have a simple one, i might extend it, or add amber turn signals for it.

This is both to show off your ideas, and to give new ideas to future modders.

I'll start off by saying buy the directional LEDs for LED strips

Side Emitting Audi Style LED strips - Accessories from The Retrofit Source LLC

Made the mistake of buying the strips with the LED in the middle, directional is the way to go!

I put mine under the headlight because it looks a little more natural. Plus I didn't want to see the strips if I open up the hood. As for extending I have two strips on each headlight.

Also bought the Porsche style lighting underneath the headlights sold at Autozone. Not sure if they're fogs but they would look nice behind a mesh grille, not mine particularly. Ended up giving them to my friend who had a 2010 tC but totaled it.

You just use wire taps and tap into your parking light wires (theres a thread on here somewhere about which wires are which)

Best way to do it is to get a volt meter then plug the voltmeter into two of the 6 plugs until you get a 0V when parking lights are switched off and 12V when parking lights are switched on. If im not mistaken it should be the first pair on the top (Im nowhere near my car at the moment to check, its getting its first oil change and other little issues looked into while I drive a crappy Cobalt as a loaner)

Damn, that looks excellent, and it sounds cheap! For the wiring, would I need to drag it all the way to the fuse box or can I just strip the wiring at the headlights and tap into that?

if people could post what brand of light strips they installed along with their pics I think that would be very helpful for people wanting to do it themselves. I know I'd appreciate it..
