    Yep loads of people done this, including me. Posted these before but here you go, asuming the light grey/silver one is what you want then the part number is on the photo.

    I also want to do this mod but want the version with the two ambient LED's (as pictured above).

    Has anyone got any part numbers to hand or know where to find them? I have an A3 Sportback S-Line with the darker trim (There are a few on eBay but without the LED's, I don't particularly want to buy the official kit and have to drill holes...)
