This car was posted in the multimedia forum and i really like the strips of l.e.d.'s mounted on the front trim. Does anyone have any info on this car? I was just wondering if there was a way to do it so it wouldn't be to noticeable at night. I know the local cyclegear sells strips of l.e.d.s made for motorcycles but maybe one of those would work.

I would think it would be easy to put them in. Use some sort of good adhesive and mount them to the black plastic bezel or something on the headlight, and then wire them up to a switch, or you could wire them to your parking lights.

Check out superbrightleds.com

Thats actually kind of cool!

You can actually just use the roll LEDS they sell at AutoZone or a parts store equivalent.

^ I've seen those roles, but they are spaced out a bit too much so it wouldnt have the same effect. I have seen light bars like pictured, but cant remember where

On ebay you can find many many Audi style LED kits to mount on your car, you should check it out, they have such a wide variety.

hey i think i posted that haha

right below the headlight on the trim there is a flat squarish area where it looks to be mounted. after seeing this picture i went and looked at mine to see where it would be done.
there are a few different ways it could be done.... buy the strips, or buy the individual leds and wire them in yourself.
i think it would be easier to buy the strip actually. i think advanced auto or autozone had strips like that, they may have even been in a chrome plastic thing who knows.

keep us updated on what you find.

If I still had my 91 GT, I'd do it.

I don't think its too ricey its all in ones opinion i guess. I absolutely love audi lighting systems especially the r8. But i looked at Kragen today when i was picking up oil and they only had individual l.e.d.s that you could probably drill through the trim to mount which might work as long as i got it all straight. They would definately need to be really close together to have a good effect

I still say that the flexible strips I found would be the best bet.. That way they could be easily removed without damaging anything..

if you had them going at night you could get people to pull over
