    Door Handle Illumination

    I'm slowly planning and gathering parts to add door handle illumination to my B5 (I think I should have bought a B6 at times).
    Since the B5s never had this option, I need to pop over to this section and ask you guys for information.

    I got pics of the light in the handles (supplied by Cabbyfan) but nothing on the back to showing how they are routed or attached.





    I've found a couple of threads where people have added this to a Jetta using Touareg parts
    JettaMKV.com • View topic - DIY: Touareg door handle lights on mk5
    And one with some other parts for a MKV Golf.
    Blue Door Handle Illumination - VW GTI Forum / VW Rabbit Forum / VW R32 Forum / VW Golf Forum - Golfmkv.com
    Does any one have the back end pics of their door handles or willing to take the pics or even know of any?
    Any information would be great.
    thanks. :D

    me thinks that surly you could get pre cut handle shells from Audi for this mod rather than cutting your existing handles?

    For B6 upwards I think you can.

    But not for us older generation of A4s.

    That I suspect but I would like to get the location as close to correct as possible.
