    Found a number of units on the Gernam ebay selling units that do the "coming home" lights feature. Anyone know if these are genuine Audi or if it's straightforward to retrofit? Presumably you need the coming home button that sits near the headlight switch.

    Cheers for that, presume it's the same for the B7. Don't suppose anyone here has done this?

    Not confident enoguh to try it as I haven't found an actual B7 thread and each model is slightly different.

    That would be fantastic! Where and how much did you get the windscreen?

    I've come up with a cheaper way of doing this that can be done on any car.

    When you unlock or before you lock the interior lights come on. Take a feed off one of the interior lights, feed a relay which in turn switches your headlights on. Possibly add a switch to disable the function if needed.

    I wonder if you could use the original switch in the circuit you suggested? It's the one on the left

    Looking at the B6 thread, apparently the relevant wires are there, just tucked away. If that was the same with the B7 then all you need is a replacement switch, in my case a switch with both headlight levelling and CH and plug the wires into it.

    However, I am not confident enough with wiring so would prefer someone else to do it :)
