Looks good, Any chance you can take a photo without the flash, so we can see how bright they are...
It's not the flash, it's the courtesy light.
They aren't that bright. You can only
really see them at night. Looks like
nice and errm... pink
They do look red at night, trust me.
looks great! Did you have black plastic inserts before? Is yours a non-SV? Mine's an SV, and it has aluminium inserts like yours, just not lit up.
How hard was the wiring job? I guess you had to run wires under the carpet and trim? Are the inserts glued down?
Black plastic was the standard on my
"Selective" trim. Weird because Alu was
standard on my "Distinctive" 147 which is
down one trim level.
Managed to fit them without much problem.
They have an instruction sheet.
You're meant to take the door rubbers off,
but I managed to prise off the plastic ones
and the new one clip straight back in through
Wires just run along underneath then up and
behind the dash endcaps and up to the trim
seam of the pillars as per the instructions.
Then I needed extra wire to reach the courtesy
light and just tucked the wires into the head liner
around the top of the windscreen and pulled
them through after dropping both the courtesy
light cover and it's main box. (Box was a bugger
They are a bit of an expensive mistake
but I really
do like 'em now.
