Just a little bored... flame on!

(a little much, but I'd rather have this than the circle fogs)

Um, no comment. :D

Nice Photoshop work, though.

I saw someone with LED strips fitted to a current-shape A4 (can't remember where) in a similar way, which made it look a bit like an S6 if it were coming up fast behind you, so these things are entirely available and this is completely do-able. It would take a little bit of wiring to get them fitted in just at the top of the blank grills above the fogs - might pose a trouble on an A5 where the fogs cut into the bumper, but might be easier on an S5 where they don't.

Doesn't look too bad to me, but can't really see the point - fitting white bulbs into the fogs would be just as good and the standard DRLs are quite enough for me!

Was out at the weekend and saw a susuki jeep with LED strips fitted. Had a look on e-bay so many after market LED strips, son everyone will have them. Get as much use out of the DRLs while you can.

Yeah, I figured we'd start seeing a bunch of copy cat LEDs pretty quickly. Was just hoping it wouldn't be this soon. :( Oh well.

There are very strict regulations regarding lights on the front of the vehicle. They have to be kite-marked to be approved for road use and installed correctly. I imagine if they take off as retro-fit items there will be a big police clamp down... like blue lights in the dash/grille... 3 points on the license and a fine.

I think it takes away from the signature look of the model

I don't like the look with both strips. If the fogs could curl up to match the DRL it might look better but they would not fit in the current grill.

LED are everywhere. I have some for my wifes MINI. The boot and rear seats have no respectable lights. Adding them to the top of the boot and the footwells gave a lot more light when needed.

The front looks best if you just replace the yelllowish bulbs in the fog lights with more white bulbs to match the color of the LEDs.
