    I fitted one of these yesterday and there no good because they are directional so they don't shine downwards.

    Need one with a right angle for them to do the job but I've not found any!

    They are 5 Watt BA9's.
    LED's aren't as bright as inandescent bulbs, been looking at changing mine for coloured bulbs to match the ambient lighting, but think i'll go for incandescent for brightness.

    I saw some 4 LED festoon bulbs at a motor factors today. They didnt have the size to fit the A4 though, I had a big one apparently :)
    They are 11mm wide and 44mm long

    I have replaced the festoons in my B6 Avant with LED ones. They were from DealExtreme website. I forget the link, but will look for it, and try provide it later. I haven't managed to find the smaller map reading ones yet, but then i haven't looked really either.
