    Hi,

    As the title suggests, I think Audi make their number plate bulb holder screws from the same material as their manual clutch plates, as it is like toffee!

    I am in need of a decent replacement, and would prefer to not use the OEM versions if anyone can provide a link to a seller somewhere with the exact thread etc?

    Or if anyone has any decent advice on this, as it is doing my head in!

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I saw a thread a while ago where someone said they had replaced the screws with "marine grade screws" which has stuck with me ever since, and I was hoping for the link to who or where to buy them!

    That or Trups, I don't mind!

    Took me 2 or 3 orders of screws from ebay to get the perfect ones. Cant find the exact ones but I think they are M3X12.

    I used torx head screws, make them easier to attach/remove and very hard to damage the head

    The proper size phillips screwdriver would have stopped this

    this is of course the obvious bit let's face it the OEM screw is really soft
