    The price of the original gas springs for the auto boot mod is GBP 21,-- each.

    edit
    Last week I received the original Audi gas springs and after installing the boot opens automatically again. A little more force is needed to close the boot by hand now.

    Any more info on this mod? Is it a total DIY job or is there some Audi parts that can be ordered?

    There are 2 ways:

    1. Use ventilator units from the Audi RS4 cabrio; don't know details.

    2. DIY: Link

    Hi there,

    Is there any chance of doing a step by step instruction for the ambient lighting.

    Looks like an easy one for those of us that aren't too technical!

    Cheers

    Here's one translated from German with Google: Link

    As far as I remember you need a small torx screwdriver to remove the 2 screws that are holding the unit against the ceiling.

    You can also buy a complete unit with the ambient led's, but they're quite expensive. I guess appr. GBP 100,--.

    Yes, it's just plug in play.

    Just make sure you insert the ambient led unit the correct way otherwise it might not be well aligned with the 2 holes.

    In the picture below you'll see where to connect the green and brown wire to:

    After the 2 screws are removed the module is loose. Push it a little towards the front window and than carefully pull to get it out.
    Be carefull because the BT microphone is located in this module also.

    The screws are located at the left and right arrow in the picture below.

    Concerning point 7 in the first post, I think the chrome rings are too big.
    I have the 2 chrome rings and received a new foglight cover today, but think this will be an ugly upgrade.
    This is a no-go for me.

    I did a "poor mans" conversion using the honey comb back grill at £30.00 and a dremel. It's been on for about 3 months now - see my avitar

    In the UK a lot of part numbers are different from the rest of the EU,. This is because in the UK they have right hand drive cars where the rest of Europe use left hand drive cars.

    For people from Romania it is better to look for part numbers in these forums:
    - Germany: http://www.seatforum.de/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=67
    - Spain: http://clubseatexeo.com/es/index.html
    - France: http://www.exeo-concept.fr/index.php?/page/index.html
    - Netherlands: http://www.seat-online.nl/ or http://www.seat-online.nl/forumdisplay.php?128-SEAT-Exeo-3R-(2009-heden)

    You might need Google these websites for translation.
