I did...took about 45 minutes.

Here is the link that Jwil wrote up on the procedure.  I followed it exactly and had no issues.  Of course, if you want some help, I would be happy.  I think we should turn it into a garage day and a BBQ...we always need a reason to GTG.

I did it too, but it took me about 2 hours because I am slow.  Actually, I was missing some necessary parts, so that was the most time consuming part for me...

Yes, not sure about the compatibility with the A4s though.

It is not a direct fit to Audi...only on the Passats.  Check with Audi...my allroad had the red LED's that shine down...but they are pretty weak compared to the W8 light that was in the Passat.

The W8 also provided red lights on the markings for the sunroof control and for the map light controls...where before there were no lights at all...just silk screened on.  Audi's already have those markings lighted up...so the only gain you would get is 2 red LED's that shine down...you have to ask yourself...are 2 little red LED's worth, I don't know, maybe $100 for a new panel from Audi?  Personally, I would say no.
