Default interior led lights on sq5

I haven't yet taken delivery of the car yet but was wondering if someone could help me out before hand so I can have some stuff ready to do to it when it comes. Im interested in getting an interior led light kit for it but want to make sure the sq5's don't already come with led' interior lights as either part of the facelift or the fact its an sq5 and not a q5. so I don't buy something I don't need. Also was wondering about the rear license plate lights, are they led's on the sq5?


so far I ordered a vag com from ross tech
hoen h11's
emailed auto style on the custom floor mats
waiting to see the car to get license plate frames that I like
and im looking for new front grill options

anything else you all would recommend?

I did notice that my sister in-law's 2014 A5 Cab has all LED interior lights. I think I like the look of my incandescent bulbs in my 2011 Q5 better. I must be old school.

If in a cold climate I would recommend winter wheels and tires.

thanks

I got it with the 20" wheels so im planning on switching them out to conti dws all seasons

I had a bmw x5 with the same and it was perfectly fine for me. I'm a pretty skilled driver that enjoys a little slip and slide every once in a while. When its really bad out I will just stay home.

Wanting to do the same to my SQ. You might check into the weatherTech digital fit mats. I have had them in all my cars. I have been busy, but I want to do the LED upgrade ASAP. I have the led fog lights on order.

Do a search on interior LEDs. Subject has been covered extensively.

Even after doing a search it doesn't say specifically if the 2014 my sq5 has interior led's from the factory. That was my main question. There is nothing more annoying then someone saying do a search to a question...we all know how to do a search its 2014, google has been around for quite some time. I have read every post on this blog regarding sq5's and its possible I may have missed it by why not just answer my question then take the time out to be obnoxious. WE are all here to help eachother out and and relate in our hobby which is cars, mods, whatever. I just don't get it. Sorry my post bored you and wasted your time.

NO!!! My 2014 SQ5 prestige DOES NOT have LEDs. I know!! I don't even really post about the mods I have done because people want a six page report!!! I posted a pic of my window tint and this one guy told me I should have posted all the specs on the tint. Lol. I mean window tint is a preference on how light and dark you go. And every color will make it look different. There are some really nice guys and information on here though.

No need to get offensive. By searching I meant this forum not google, which obviously you didn't because the interior LEDs have been discussed here numerous times.

I was simply referencing google because they have since inception changed the world of searching. to the point their name is now an adjective in Webster. I did search this forum or I wouldn't have asked the question. I don't need to be told to go search if you didn't feel like answering me then don't answer at all its ok. again I have read all posts pertaining to the sq5 on this forum if you think the answer has been stated prior go find it for me. Maybe im wrong.

im not entirely sure, I'm that guy that normally spends more not to miss out on something better but I'd really rather be informed first...

I saw a few posts from people blasting those who paid extra for the same thing... just not sure if one kit is missing something or of lower quality.. will look into it further

No need to lecture about google, I'm sure everyone here is familiar with the term. Not sure what you've searched for because you can usually find good info on subjects that have been covered extensively, especially considering you're a new member.

the SQ5 does not have all LED interior lights. The footwell lights are LED. I replaced all my interior and door lights (note the doors have TWO lights each) with cheap eBay LEDS. While they made a good difference and now all my lights are pure white, they are not as bright as more expensive LEDS (i.e. VLEDS). However, they are still much brighter then the stock bulbs.

They were pretty easy to swap out as well, no biggie.

I would be curious to know about xtralight also. I looked at their website and while it appears to be legit, their product reviews are sketchy. It's like the same person, who writes like English was not his first language, wrote all the "reviews".

Good luck, I hope this works out. At least we're not talking about much money for the risk.

I mentioned (and posted pics) about some lights I used in the boot and in the bottom door lights...They are more expensive but they are fantastic.

I went with the cheap options the rest away round though.
