Electrical kits connect the electrics in your Saloon to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.

Electric kits for Audi A4 Saloon

We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your Saloon, like ABS and trailer stability, rather than just basic lighting.

Why is a dedicated kit important? Well, not only does it work with the specific features of your vehicle, but it also protects the warranty of your Saloon and works with any enhanced safety features you may have.

Of course, you can choose between a dedicated kit or a universal kit, and we do offer both, but a universal electrical kit can affect your manufacturer warranty and you might also need to install a bypass relay.
