    R8 puddle lights

    Curious if anyone has purchased the R8 puddle lights (logo displayed on the ground)? I noticed there are the obvious sellers on EBay from China. I haven’t checked my local dealer for pricing, but wondering the forum’s thoughts on this addition? Seems to add a bit of flare and show to the car and a reasonable addition. The R8 logo on eBay looks pretty good. I am sure the life of these as compared to direct thru Audi is less, but even if needing to be replace 2x per year still seems better than direct? Anyone have experience and feedback with adding the puddle lights to the R8?

    I've got some ebay ones and so far after about a year they are doing fine. As you say, though, they don't have the life of the OE ones but are a fraction of the price.

    Bought off Ebay and still working, nobody has mentioned the life of the OEM ones! OEM cost is ridiculous so go with Ebay and buy 3 sets for spares.

    Thanks all. Done and done. Looks to be a mod worth the $25. I purchased a 4 pack and install looks plug and play also. Easy mod!

    Tell your wife I’m sorry for being a bad influence! And, let her know I’m on the lookout for more expensive modifications

    If you weren't influenced to get bits for the car, what would she do for wall art, Dave.
