    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.

    As above, we need pics :)

    They're not the easiest things to photograph in fairness!

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

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

    lucky, can't wait for snow.

    ambient is so very nice, gives the interior a nice glow.
    I tried taking pictures of mine and its so hard. I gave up.

    What am i missing here..
    Mine looks like that, is it not all A4's have the red lighting or have you put brighter bulbs all round?

    Mine never had it but mine was a B5 Pre-facelift.
    I fitted W8 lights that had it.

    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?

    Yes mate a doddle, clip the light out, snap the housing into the pre-determined location, route the wires and plug them in.

    I mite be been a bit thick here, but here goes with the amibent lighting on doesn't that mean that people in other cars can see you whilst driving @ nite? isn't it like driving with your interior light on?

    Im tempted to do it but just not right keen on everybody staring @ me @ nite!!!!!

    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

    Not bright enough at all.

    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.

    No one comments on my spacers or black calipers either :beee:

    But I still turn around and look at the car EVERY time I walk away from it :o.k:
