    My cabriolet has the 'interior lamp pack' but this does not had door handle illumination. Do any of the A4s have this at all ? Or have I got to crack out the drill and add some 5 or 8mm red LEDs ??

    I have the interior light pack in my cabriolet, and it has the door handle illumination. Mine is a B7 model though. My B6 saloon had the door handle illumination with that interior light pack. I cant see why they would not put it on the cabriolet if the saloon has it.

    Strange, I have the ambient lighting and the arm rest lamps !

    Might have to see if there are other genuine door handles which i can buy already done, don't suppose anyone can take a picture in the daylight so I can see if I can fit a couple of LEDs instead ??

    Thanks

    Dan, it seems you have an interior light pack . . . Could you send me or post up a pic of the two lights by the rear view mirror, daytime shots will be fine, just want to see if I can add this to mine as I haven't got them, but have all the other lights.

    It seems like the interior light pack is different in every cab model . . . . .

    I just went and checked mine out. There is no where for them to be mounted in the base plate. I know this can easily be done on Saloons and Avants but not the same for the Cabriolets. So by looking at Andys we can work out if it may involve a new base plate too.

    thanks anyway jase.

    I have an 02 Avant SE with the light package and I'm pretty certain I don't have illuminated door handles on mine.
    I'm going out later so I'll check for certain and confirm it with you.
    It has got all the other illuminations though.

    Thanks for that Rich, but the baseplate is totally different and you cannot mount the LED's in there. There isn't anywhere to attach the power leads unless you splice into the wires before the plug. Be it that there is only about 1" of available wire to do this on.

    pm sent Danny.

    But I have a feeling you have the same interior light cluster as Andyccr. And they have changed it on the B7 model. And there is nowhere that you can mount the LED's. This is due to the interior sensors, the Bose Audiopilot mic and the telephone mic.

    Danny, yours is the same as Andyccr's. They have changed it so the alarm sensors can be put in there, thus losing the LED's. I may give Audi a call and see what they have to say as the brochure and their website still show the console illumination as part of the interior lght pack.

    I'll let you know their response.
