I did a search for several different term combo's on this but I didn't turn up much information. I recall reading some a while back but I can't find the threads. I just want to know if people are getting these overpriced but neat toys or not; and if so, what do you think of them? Also, who's got the best deal going lately? New Dimensions has them on their website for $34.99.

Thanks for any help.

I love that little thing - I used it all throughout the blackout we had here.

The search is only going back to a couple of months. Try Liberty as well but 35 bux is a decent price.

I got mine for $35 from a dealer somewhere in the midwest on E-bay. Mine has come in handy on more than one occasion. Also, my girls think it's a lot of fun.

this is a link to the group buy that happened awhile ago. It had the specifics including the part#'s. I keep sending a special request form to drewparts to see how much it would be with the clubb5 discount, but i have had no response in 3 weeks or so :???:
I found the OEM flashlight on the "Special Order" section, it was like $58 and with the clubb5 discount it was around $47.

Oh, one more question: will the ashtray cover go back down with this in?

Thanks for the replies so far. Keep 'em coming.

Yes the ashtray will go down if it is closed IIRC there is an off and a clicked down closed or something like that, make sure it is as small as possible since that is they only way it can fit

Check this link: http://www.drewparts.com/Products.asp?ParentID=33354
It is listed as follows:
Light For Socket
Light for socket in ashtray. Part number 7L6-947-175-A.
$58.30

This links provided were very helpful. I'll put in a request from Liberty and see how much they want for one also, but it looks like the New Dimensions is the price to beat.

Paid way too much for it but it has paid for itself in the past few months. Been a lifesaver in 2 power outages and helping me find a bottle opener in the back of my truck while skiing...

Without that light we most certainly would have gone without beer for almost 15 minutes :lol:

ecstuning is the price for me. It is more expensive than New Dimensions, but after shipping ecstuning is a couple cents cheaper. New Dimensions charges $7 for shipping and ecs charges $3.

Even with the torch as small as possible, the ashtray cover sticks up about a millimeter and a half however, it is completely unnoticeable except if you look for it. The thing lasts forever on one charge.

one more dumb ?, the part # on drewparts.com is 7L6-947-175-A, when the group buy from Liberty VW is 7L6-947-175-11 . Does anyone know the difference, or are they the same thing?

Wow, that's a really good price, I haven't seen them that low since they came out.. Gosh,perhaps, you could try a group buy with New Dimensions and get it even lower. :shock:

I've got one more question.....

Has anyone used this light in another car other than a VW? For that amount of money I would hope that it was interchangable, seems that those lighter socket's are pretty universal.
