Those are Audi's answer to BMW's Angel Eyes. They are LED Running Lights. All new Audi's are going to have them along with Available LED Headlights. I saw a set of LED "Angel Eyes" for the Forte Koup on KoreanAutoImports. $199. But a lot of work cutting open your headlights etc.

No, I believe the White is for running light purposes, and the Amber are tied in to your turn signals so they only tun amber when your turn signal is on. Thus the reason the pic's of one side being Amber and the other being white.

Yeah, I agree with tampabear. But look at the mirror lights its two different colors! I wonder how they installed that... and if that is tied into the led strip as well... I would love to make my koup look like that!!!

ya i think it looks pretty sweet too. does any1 know of an electrical mod that will keep your side mirror blinkers on when you have your lights on and they would only blink when you used your turn signal? they'd be just like the front turn signal lights. always on until you use the turn signal. i think it'd look wicked cool at night and even still cool during the day... just a thought

Yeah, that's what I was thinking! But that sounds like a pretty heavy task for a do it yourself project.
