I find several LED threads on this forum, for example on dome, rear license plates and so on. But noone has yet tried to swap the yellow turn signal bulbs with yellow LEDs.

The first thing that comes to mind is autocheck which will give an alert. this can be solved easily by adding a small resistor (correct name?) to the harness going into the lamp. Several wires, but should be easy to find the signal for the turn signal.

I see the largest problem as to find a LED-bulb that will actually fit the socket in the lamp. And not only fit but also have the correct polarity so it will fit. I've tried a couple of LED-bulbs on my 06 A6, but haven't been able to find any that fit or have the correct polarity yet.

I've found several sites where I can buy these, but I don't want to buy the whole internet to find the correct one.

Example these might do it, I don't know:

Does anyone have any information that could help? If you just could find correct LED-bulbs.

Just curious - now that I ordered FL rear tail lights for my '08, has anyone done LED amber signals in the front by swapping the bulb? Not much in the archives when I search.

I'm guessing that the light output/dispersion would not be adequate in the daytime if we could find one that fits.

Anyone?

It looks like the 1156 7506 will fit. The socket pin seems to be the same as mine. The bulb is small, halogen and with offset pins. Not sure if white or amber would be best. Will investigate a little more.

I have sent the person who uploaded the video with the black A5 front led bulbs a message. Hopefully we will know soon the bulb type that was used. I will let everyone know. There are so many designations for bulb types it is all very confusing!!

Yes, the guy is from Japan and he drives a prefacelift audi sportback. He says that the bulbs in the post facelift model have a different bulb. Can anyone who has a good rapport with an audi dealer fund out if the front turn signal bulb is the same in the pre and post facelift S5? I have the post facelift. Really want to change these bulbs.

Thanks Spikey. Both pre and post facelift are halogen with offset pins at 120 degrees. But I am told they are two different bulbs. Hopefully an Audi dealer will confirm. Because of the offset pins then polarity can become an issue and the replacement bulb may not work.

I was talking about the front turn signal bulb. I believe you can already get the rear bulb for pre facelift here now. You could try BM Town
