    There was one for an 8p on eBay for £29.99 as advertised by a member on here if I remember correctly. That's not a bad price tbh.

    And for bulbs, T8ups is your man!

    I strongly suspect that's correct but I can't honestly say I have done it.

    Stoke Audi do both front and rear ambient lighting units with map reading lights. They dont come up very often on Flea bay and they are normally more expensive than what Stoke charge. They aren't advertised for sale on their website though....you'll have to phone them up and order them.

    Any idea on the cost from Audi?

    I have seen a few on the bay but are the grey coloured ones but only going for £25! Might buy one and re-paint it the correct colour but depend what Audi charge for it.

    No, that was for the front one. I never did the rear, but I believe the rear one was around £40.
