It's really easy in the A3 (presumably you're talking about the red lights located in the courtesy lights? I think the part alone is around £10 and plug 'n' play.

So if the A4 is the same as the A3, it's a doddle.

Yes these can be fitted to the A4 B6, it's a nice easy mod to do.

You just need the LED module from the dealers (about £10) then remove your front interior light, drill out the 2 holes that are marked out on the inside of the light, clip the LED module in and wire it up to the spare connectors in the interior light.

Does the wiring just come from the interior light already in place? has anyone a number for this LED module as this sounds a budget mod i may be able to stretch funds to

Finished pics shown here on this eBay ad for one that's already been done:

And here's a nice how-to with part numbers.

It couldn't get any easier!!

leach, yes the connections for the LED module are already in the standard light and the module comes with the wires and connectors already attached. It really is plug and play.

The first mod I did to my A4 [:D]

No idea sorry. Mine has map lights and the connectors were there.

If any of the switches illuminate on yours when your headlights are on then I don't see it being a major problem to take a feed from them if there are no connections spare
