    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
