    Mine was in black though to match the black headlining.

    Dead easy to fit and looks pretty cool in the dark when the red LED's are on.

    I know the LED's can be fitted DIY style for a few quid but the reading lights are quite useful as well.

    Yes, I've got the black one too.

    Install is simple.

    1) remove clear lens cover (gently prise off)
    2) remove panel that goes around centre switch (gently prise off)
    3) remove two screws towards front of light (near windscreen)
    4) gently release existing light assembly by pulling down
    5) Unplug wirring from old unit
    6) Plug in wirring to new unit
    7) Clip unit back into headlining
    8) Replace two screews removed earlier
    9) Fit new map light cover
    10) Fit new clear lens cover

    Thats it. Even someone who has never done any DIY before should be able to do this in under 5 mins.

    I also bought mine from www.audi-accessories.co.uk

    I think Neil posts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I've had next day delivery off him. Drop him a line via e.mail, he picks it up on his Blackberry.
