Orange dash backlight bulbs
The bulbs fitted as stock in the ur-quattro orange dash are no longer available
from Audi. The original scheme used a white plastic bayonet lampholder and a
separate halogen bulb that looks like a miniature transparency projector bulb -
it has two stiff wires/prongs protruding from the base.
The replacement is Audi part #811 919 040BB - and it's marked: "Made in USA".
The replacement instructions are printed on the outside of the plastic
enevelope, and are typical of US instructions - "Allow bulb to cool". It's
been dead a month, think it's still gonna be hot?
The envelope also carries a number - MPB1100-C. Using the trusty workshop
microscope (NOT normally carried in the car) I can make out a "GE" logo on
Audi is ripping us off $20 each for these. Anyone know of a source?
