The under lights look nice, very Audi-esque appearance. Got me thinking about another upgrade...

LED's in any flash location will require an in-line resistor to mirror the current draw an incandescent bulb will pull (been there on my prior cars). They get very hot so install location is key. They can also blow fuses quickly if inserted in the wrong polarity.

I agree with the other posts -- better to get the silver / chrome plated bulbs (i.e. 3157's, etc...) which remove the egg-yolk appearance to most front ends.

It is just a grille from a Gen3 sedan. Not sure if you guys have the same over there?

Not too difficult to DIY anyway

One can get the proper load resistors from Super Bright LEDs (here's the link) http://superbrightleds.com. The resistors are wired in parallel (that is, across the hot and ground wires) with the turn signals. This way the resistors will provide a greater load for the flasher and slow down the flash rate to normal.
