Yea i read through the whole thread, wish i owned my audi back then, because those lights are sick. And i recently contacted them and they replied saying they have them in stock, but the shipping is pretty expensive, do you remember what form of shipping you chose and how long it took before you received your order. As I live right outside of Chicago and he said its typically quicker for the east coast to get their shipments. Plus did you have any problems with the Canbus system, as I don't think my car has that feature I own a 98 A4
In regards to the CANBUS system, I believe if you have a DIS (Driver Information Screen) in your gauge cluster than you have the CANBUS system which monitors if lights are out on the car. I do have the CANBUS system, and installed some resistors so that the LED's did not set off the system.
