    Hello, after reading a thread on here a few weeks ago about the map reading lights i thought, I wouldnt mind them, as you do...Anyway I now have 2 sets of map lights, the only problem being they are a very dark grey not the light grey like the one withought the map lights id be replacing. The question is then, does the map light come in the light grey? Im going to have to put the two I have on ebay along with the old interior light I had lying around too....

    The dark one that you have bought is for an S-line car as they have dark headliner which would match the darker colour map light unit

    What year is your car? As i have a 2006 A3 S-line and would be well interested in this

    Smoothie, ambient lighting LED's are very easy to add to these consoles, so don't rule it out.

    £10 for the LED unit which clips in and a 6mm drill bit for the holes (that's what I used anyway)

    Do the LEDs go in the middle towards the edge nearest to the windscreen? If they do that would explain what the to circle guides are for are the inner part of the plastic cover?

    yea mate thats were the LED's go closest the windscreen, but the map light unit can be bought from audi with the ambient lighting already present for about £75 so you need to be giving yours away lol
