    hi
    am considering this mod
    on flea bay there is a cabrio light fitting with ambient allready installed
    would this be a straight swap for my a4 avant ?
    if not should i just go with the kits on ebay

    The LED insert, i did this to mine one dinner time, took longer to get the drill out and the right size bit than actually doing the mod.

    It worked out cheaper getting the insert from the stealers

    Can you but the plastic also (with the holes already in) - So you don't need to drill holes in the plastic, as i've heard that the led's can hang out slightly?!

    Probably, but it would be exactly the same as the one you have, just with the holes drilled for you... It's dead easy to drill and there's no way the LEDs will hang out as they clip into place behind the plastic cover

    When you're drilling you're best to do it quickly rather than using a slow drill speed so as to leave a cleaner finish.

    Its the easiest mod you can do.

    The kits are good as they come with detailed insructions, however all you need to do is open the panel take it down and drill 2 holes.(quickly)

    And then clip the leds in and put everything back, done!
