Gary, I highly recommend the Blau harness.  The quality of assembly 
is very impressive.  They include full hardware(including a circuit 
breaker/fuse combo), some nice instructions, and some extras...for 
example, a switch can be put in the passenger compartment that 
controls whether the aux driving light beams come on with the high 
beams or not.  They even throw in the switch(granted, its a generic, 
not an Audi switch, but...)

The wires are nicely crimped, all consistently color-coded, crimped 
very nicely with heatshrink tubing perfectly cut+positioned over the 
crimps; they use a real relay block, etc.  I think it's well worth 
the cost.  I just have to actually get around to installing mine :-)

The only way it could have been better was if they used the official 
Audi boot connector to hook up to the lights(they used a generic 
4-pin connector that has the right spacing.)
