    Map Lights/Ambient Lighting

    Is this the same thing when it comes to retro-fitting?

    Defo wanna get this done soon, and the silly flick switch with 3 settings is doing my nut in!

    Anyone done this before and have part numbers of whats needed on an 8P?

    Cheers

    Chris

    If you don't have a sunroof and have the dark S3 / S-Line headlining then the part number is 8E0 947 135 D6 PS 69 +VAT. Simple plug and play, no coding required....

    Did this a few weeks ago, two screws to remove the old one, move the handsfree & bose mic across and refit. No coding.
