Trunk light?

Do you US users have one or two trunk lights?
Ours (on a RHD car) is on the right hand side as you look into the boot, just wondered if you have the same side light or the opposite.

I'd like to add a second light to the opposite side.

My mistake, I do have lights on both sides of the trunk...
They're just candle powered

Its not so hard to switch them to LEDs if you care enough. Plenty of people do things like that. Is it something you've considered?

Lee -

Here's an interesting point - I love knowledge - my PR codes for this are QE5 and QQ1, which is the "tray areas package 3" and "with additional lights" - AND I was SUPPOSED to get LEDs here, but just did not. The LED P/N is (they're the same for both sides) : 8J0947409 and here they cost $27 each.

btw, since I could, I checked YOUR car too, and it seems that you might've had them as well - look in your mail for your Cat-PR Data I sent you. You have the same PR Codes as me, but your car is a model year older, so they're not on the list.

I suspect that Audi's just-in-time supply chain wasn't. So they just tossed in the ol' candles without a wink or even a nod ...

What say others I wonder ??

I am figuring that Audi just didn't think that people would care that much about the lights in the trunk. Doesn't really make sense why they wouldn't just put LEDs in every light spot. I don't think that it is a cost thing because with the volume of LEDs they are using I just don't think that makes much sense.

Candles here too.

I found these online, but have not ordered them. I'm trying to decide how much the yellow light is going to annoy me first.
