    i don't have time for elaborate DIY but you need facelift BCM, gateway has to be 5Q0 high, MIB2 capable of ambiente light color (don't know which sw is capable, also I think that it can only control door rgb module not footwell ones, that can only mib2.5) or MIB2.5,
    on rgb led housing: these housings have a longer protruding plastic for fiber optic which need to be cut, also sides needs to be cut to fit on old fiber optic;
    Pinout
    pin1 – +12v Kl.30
    pin2 – LIN-Bus
    pin4 – -12v

    You can use either passat or audi rgb housing
    audi
    8W0 947 355 L
    passat
    3G0 927 103 K
    passat one comes with flat cable lenght around 10cm and connector while audi one connector goes directly to plastic housing no flat cable

    for footwell rgb led housing use audi a4
    8W0 947 415 A — front left
    8W0 947 415 B — front right
    8W0 947 415 С — rear left
    8W0 947 415 D — rear right (didn't notice difference, didn't have time to look)
    connector
    8K0 973 754

    also there is for door card "pockets" smaller (square) housing rgb also
    8W0 919 390 F
    8W0 919 390 E
    connector
    8K0 973 754

    BCM must be HIGH module otherwise no joy. LIN bus pin is 61 on bcm. there is option to use audi a4 8w footwell lights which are also rgb modules, or smaller ones from a3 to make it full
    Sweet, thanks for the reply. Any difference between A4 and A3 footwell light regarding functionality?

    A4 footwell light are regular size, while A3 new size, really small square, but they do the same thing
