    Rizzou if you scroll though the 1st & 2nd pages you can get an even detailed DIY from Viny from whom myself, roy & others were inspired. It is connected to the cabin light bulb holder.

    Rizzou, As Cinju suggested, checkout the earlier posts in this thread. If you look at the fifth picture in my post, you can see where the wire is connected. That is the cabin light holder with the bulbs removed. After hooking up the wires, I just put the bulbs back in place. The wire is then run through the gap between roof and the roof lining up to the A-Pillar and then taken down beside the glove box and under it. Then it is crossed over to the driver side through the gap behind the center console.

    Did you put up the LEDs on all the insides OR just the front passenger ? Would be interesting to have it all through the car front and back ;)

    Good DIY tip though...

    Cheers

    I have put it only for the foot wells for front passenger and driver side. Some others have done it for the back seat as well.

    I am @ TFI :)
    Its just i was a bit passive, going through all the active fun of group meets etc.
    Well about new things, you already know about the automation project, it needs lot of time, fund and grey matter, which is scarce so trying to build it up :)

    Just did a small addition to my current setup. Let the pics do the talking..

    This is the only thing which looks slightly awkward.
