    +1 to viny, i agree the beauty to these lights are when they are hidden and light up the floor when you open the door. i just wannted to ask what is the maximum amount of light that can be connected to the source from where you have taken the connnection from.its just for my knowledge so that i dont endup blowing up my fuse.

    Had, I bought punto, i might have gone with that disco lights, but will not mess up with elegance of Linea :D Alternately I would not mind using a smoke machine to generate cold smoke upto knee level height (seat height). Giving a feeling of seating on top a cloud :D with some diffused lights making up the ambiance :)

    Look forward to see your version :)
    And I am not sure how much load this could take up, my first guess is that a fuse of 10 Amp must be in place. I have not checked, so kindly do ensure that you check if you plan to use anything over those two led strips, that are doing there job in my car from last 1 year or so.

    Yups parallel.

    1.) driver side

    3 & 4.) back passanger seat L & R respectively.
    5.) I managed to light up the boot too.

    Can you post the pics with lights off & where exactly have you placed the LED for back seat & boot?

    Placed very practically. Seems you had used white & blue /violet combination.. I am just worried about the total load..Hope it wont give you any bad impact..
