Led sills look awesome on your car at night. There are numerous variants with S-Line, Allroad, S6 and RS6 illuminated ones. Do not get fooled by the numerous chinese crap that’s massively sold on Ebay – original ones look and work much, much better. Since my car is a regular A6, I decided to install the default LED ones. Plus, chinese ones have circle cables that require you to drill through your car which is ridiculous. If you’re getting them 2nd hand, make sure to peel off completely the old tape, clean it with alcochol and use the best one you can get your hands on to avoid dust and dirt going under.
Here are the parts you need. There’s one cable per sill that you need to connect to the lamp under your door. If you don’t have the light package, I wouldn’t bother doing the illuminated sills anyway.

Wiring and Assembly
You need some strong double sided ductape to stick the sills to your car. Then, insert the cables under the plastic mats and link them to the reading light. That’s it 🙂 Although simple wiring, make sure to check sills polarity and prepare enough time because plastic and trim removal, wiring and connecting is a time consuming process.
There’s no coding, the illumination level is controled by your MMI settings.
