    Ambient lighting - Done!

    Thank you to James for the how to again.
    I got the kit off Stoke Audi's website.
    Fitted it last night.

    I also had some ambient lights from an Audi A6 that i found in a scrap yard so fitted them into the rear. Not as bright as the fronts but still abit of red glow.

    Who cares about ambient lighting...is that snow on the windscreen?

    I love the glow from the ambient lights, makes the interior look ace!

    Mine looks like that, is it not all A4's have the red lighting or have you put brighter bulbs all round?

    There's not a lot to them to be fair, I think VAgParts used to churn them out for about £8 back in the day.

    Don't forget these are also controlled by the rheostat for the dsahboard lights, so if they look a bit dim you can turn them up.

    I know there's a "how to" but are they a straight forward fit?

    Its not that bright.
    You thinking of truckers?

    Its very subtle and you can just about see it when you're in the car.

    This is mine with my hand

    Yeah, as Scott says it's really not very bright. In an area with good street lights you'll probably struggle to even see it. Out in the country lanes though it just gives a really nice red glow to the cockpit.

    I found my second set today which I got a year ago, for the rear light cluster, which I plan on fitting over christmas sometime.
