The time required to do such work from beginning to end would make the labor costs too expensive. However, if someone were to hand me a set of R6 headlights I'd probably charge about $100 excluding LED's/wires/etc.

Yea, it was my fault. I clipped the edge of the LED board to allow it to bend easily. However, there was one cut that I went in too deep. The LED still works and just requires some soldering.

You work for Audi?

This is a awesome mod.

I was just at Ace Electronics at 3210 Antoine Dr Houston, Texas 77092
and it looks like they have these LED's in stock. I believe they have everything there for the mod except the exterior double sided tape. I hope this information is helpful to anybody. Link below...

, that's really nice that the LEDs are local. No shipping and no wait! Thanks for the link.

You can find your usual 3M double-sided tape at Home Depot. I like it because it's also handy for other things around the house.

Whats wrong with these?

I guess you didnt read his "Audi-how-to.PDF"? These are the same lights he said to use on page 3...

http://www.oznium.com/led-strip-flat-head

So are you saying his outcome looks like on his bike? It looks pretty clean to me.

im not getting into yalls led discussion, i did look at the PDF though.

just sharing these, they are available in shorter lengths through the suppliers website.

I used these for my under cabinet lighting, they are very small and flat and 12v

Amazon.com: Flexible Lighting Strip 300 SMD LED Ribbon 5 Meter or 16.4 Ft 12 volt White, 2026wh: Home Improvement

Good find, but I dont know if this will work for this project?? The strip doesnt flex the same way this light strip flexes... (Sorry if I am wrong on this)
http://www.oznium.com/led-strip-flat-head


Also, how bright do these light? Im thinking about doing the same with my cabinets.

Didnt say his turned out bad.....it actually turned out very clean.

But those are not the ones you want to use. Those strips are also known as cut-n-click strips. They are exposed units and they arent worth the time spent lookin for them.

I own an LED company and have done my fair share of research on these particular item.

I have also done this mod many times over and for the clean look use the lights that autozone carries. They are smaller and since there directional they will be brighter.

The lights you found are more of a flood type light and will not give the same desired effect. Not to mention the diode sits off the board and will stick out like a sore thumb in the housing. Also the board they sit on is not as flexable as the autozone style so making curves and such on the inside of the housing wont be easy. Also the wiring comes directly out of the top pf the board instead of out the end......so hiding the wires is impossible.

I could go on.....

Or you can waste your money and time using those then replacing them later. Your choice.


Just trying to,help the DIY guys.

As you know I did not find these lights nor am I trying to doubt ur expertise or argue. This is what the OP suggested.

Also, what kind of LED's do you sell? Are you cheaper then EPO or ACE?
