Thanks Argyll for re-uploading the LED DLR's look really great and a cracking little upgrade for £20!

Having done it on other cars in the past I have just done the upgrade as well on my Q2 Sport using Pw24W 50W Cree - Xenon White

The bulbs are available as 50 watt, 80 watt and 100 watt. I went for 50 watt as the others can be just too bright.

£17.99 a pair delivered from Car Mod Shop Ltd and 10 minutes to swap over.

No problems at all for me on my 1.4 TFSI Sport :)

I probaly won't go LED for the headlights as the reflector is not designed for them, I may go for Nightbreaker Laser instead.

Arrggh. I'm having no luck with replacing the halogen daylights with the LED ones. Managed to get the drivers one installed but unfortunately when trying to get the passenger side installed I've knocked the old bulb inside the headlight assembly and struggling to get new LED bulb in. Why do they make these things difficult to get into. Looks like I may have to take the whole headlight assembly out to get the old bulb out.
