    Here is a link to some pics of the LED bulb swap I did to all interior fixtures and with LED H11 fogs I found for my Q5. I am very pleased with the fogs compared to all of the Halogen matches I have tried and seen.

    Wuz up pokerfad?!? This is exactly what I've been looking for. I wasn't able to open the link here at work, but I'll check it out when I get home. Do you have part numbers and site you ordered them from? Have you had any error codes with these lights?

    nice work, but do you have links to all your sources for getting them? and was it a difficult job installing in total?

    I did the LED changeover with hyperwhite LED's from the TunerDome kit; very easy. Source:

    The dome is really bright, so now going to put in nightvision red LED's for the front map lights and see how that works out.

    Here's a link to a PDF I made from a forum post on how the user removed the various light receptacles in his Q5.

    Also replaced my fogs with Hoen H11 55w xenonmatch, which is a perfect match for my Q5's Xenon headlights. Source:

    BTW, very easy to replace the fogs if you go in from the front wheel wells. Remove 3 T25 torx screws, pull back the cover, quarter twist the fog light housing and pull out.

    Replaced the Tuner Dome hyperwhite LED's in the front map lights with their nightvision red LED's. I like the results. Though the photo doesn't do it justice, the red LED's do light up enough to read handwritten notes without lighting up the cabin with white lights and blowing out my nightvision. If I need more light, I just hit the dome light and it's like daylight inside.

    From the outside in the dark looking into the cabin with just the red map lights on, you can see a slight red hue inside the front cabin, but not enough to draw immediate attention.
