Newbie with some questions

Hi newbie here

Matt form Kent, Southeast England this will be my first Audi and cant wait to collect it Im picking my 2011 A5 up tomorrow its a 2ltr petrol DSG Quattro reading through the forum a lot of people seem to point to t8ups for LEDS but looks like he hasn't been on in a long while

Can someone tell me what bulbs are needed for all the interior light including the foot-well and best place to get them from?

Also my car has the LED rear lights but i believe the reversing light(s) isn't LED is it possible to replace this for a LED and if so any recommendations ?

Also one other question i want to replace the silver Audi rings on the front grill with black ones but i believe there are a few different sizes, i would of course go measure the badge but i dont have the car yet so i cant and really would like to get it ordered today if possible

Sorry for all the questions but appreciate any responses in advance

Sir that is one nice looking motor! Don't see many / any that colour & the wheels match perfectly, as for black rings an RS5 replica grill would look amazing

Thanks for the warm welcome guys

Can't wait to pick her up tomorrow she has been Machine polished and sealed await my collection

That grill is on the list of things to change but for now just want to debadge the rear and change the front badge to a gloss black one just can't find out the correct size as everywhere I look seem to list 3 sizes

Plus first on the list is to either get the oem Bluetooth installed or a dynavin n6 a5 as that is pretty much the only thing the car doesn't have that I would like then can come the fun stuff like grills, exhausts, lowering etc

Thanks again guys
