Audi A6 4G C7 Illuminated LED Sills Installation

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.

Audi A6 4F Cabin (Polen) Filter Replacement

Regularly changinf your Cabin/Polen filter is very important for the work of your car, air conditioning system and for your health. They are very easy to replace if you know how to do it. My advise is not to buy any aftermarket filter because they aren't nearly as good as the original ones with charcoal. If you have allergies - don't even think about a filter without it :) The original ones are with number 4F0 819 439 C - that's a pack of two filters which have the best price - something like EUR50 for both. Personally, I prefer to remove the glove box so I can operate more freely. On the left side you will see a tap,…
