Retrofit '09 V12 TDI led onto '09 Prestige w Xenon?
I read this retrofit with the S6 LED DRLs onto an SLine Q7 (thanks X2)
My '09 Prestige came with Xenon and I wonder if this is the same light as the SLine?
Would this work as described with the TDI LED DRLs to an '09 with Xenon? If not, would this S6 LED retrofit by X2 work?
Ps: I searched the crap out of this but most threads deal with replacing the headlamp assy to get the LED DRLs and I just want the grill base DRLs
"I didn't want to place the DRL's under the current OEM turn signals and have both sets of lights. Look too bulky and is not something Audi would do.
So I removed them and just mounted the DRL's in that spot. Relatively easy, you just need to make a bracket for them. There's a hard piece of plastic behind that small grille that you can easily drill into. Make sure if you bolt it on to that that you use some form of nut locking glue to stop it coming loose from the vibrations.
I've read that people are using some form of resitors/capcitors to get the LED's to work but I didn't have to. The S6 lights have three cables that run from the back of them. 2 are positives and 1 is a negative.
I still wanted my turn signals at the front so I replaced the bulbs of the stock DRL's (next to the Xenons) with 21W 12V orange globes. Then ran the cables from the turn signals into them. (The stock turn signals are the same wattage and voltage as the stock DRL's). I had the hazards on when I took the photo.
I then ran the wires from the globe (stock) DRL position to the S6 LED lights. Running it this way means that the DRL setting in your MMI still controls DRL lights, but now they're LED's.
I terminated the side lights that are also part of the original turn light assembly.
I'm assuming that the V12 LED's would be the same config as the S6's so this should work. It's not that big a job and I'm certainly no auto electrican. Just put my mind to it and got it done.
Good luck luvmshavd. The V12 ones will be a neater fit than the S6. Be sure to post your results
