Just what the world needs, a $40 flash light. :roll:
At least it makes the cigarette lighter in my car actually useful! Still, $40 seems kinda high. Maybe a group buy?

It lasts for a long time - I have had mine uncharged for 3 months and still is at full power. Used it during the blackout too!!!

Well it is a VW flashlight :)
It's official. BMW gadgets now cost less than VW. :shock: Of course, this one may not fit in the tiny Passat ashtray, though. Oh yeah, I'm in on a GB for the VW one. Just can't help myself, it is very trick.

I got one of these a while back when they first got here through the GB with Tim. It is very nifty anf handy. Costly yes, and the ashtray door does not close flush (like a couple milimeters open). It isn't really noticeable unless the light are on and you look at an angle. Charges fast, holds the charge for a long time.

Just a nice handy thing to have in the car for those "just in case" situations.

Not worth the price.. if you want a real handy light, buy at http://www.photonlight.com/products/photon_3.html
Photon 3 is the best with all those features, but you can buy it for HALF the price here http://alphanet.zoovy.com/product/P3WHITE

Bought mine for $10.95, very durable, glass packed casing, 100,000 hour LED life. Battery lasts for about 20 hours too.. not sure about this VW thingy.

For a real kick ass light, try this http://www.surefire.com/cgi-bin/main/co_disp/displ/prrfnbr/1071/sesent/00

This Touareg flashlight is awesome - just a bit pricey but it is super bright and much better than those photonlights cause I have one of those too. The beam is sort of cool on the Touareg light - reminds me of the projector lights on the B5.5's except it's bluish. I have not charged mine in 3 months and used it for a few hours all together during the blackout and is still full power.

Actually, if you twist it partially (to those that don't have it, it twists to turn on) so that it doesn't turn on, you can shorten its length by like 2mm. Then you can't even see the lit ring around the lighter socket.
