    @Stallion..regarding the boot light, can you please tell me how you removed the bulb. I was able to slide the bulb casing backwards, but it was not coming out. Is it the right way ?

    Need to use a small size screw driver to press the lock inside the casing.

    be careful its not ca very strong plastic and can break if extra pressure is used.
  6. Nice Idea to light up the boot - I agree with Viny that the whole point is to have the lights "not visible" - In fact, I was thinking of "extending" the original idea to replace the tail lamps & make them red LED - like the AUDI :)
    So many people attempting it gives me much more confidence to follow the DIY - Thanks Guys.

    @ Viny, one query - Did you use the Tubular one? I saw the strip type at the electrical shop nearby (He didn't have stock of the tubular one). Was having a concern with using the exposed strip for spillage of water etc (especially in the rear seats)

    Can some one point out where I can order the strips online?

    Sekar..you can order it online..In fact I had ordered it online from E-bay and it is a waterproof one and it has got even good looks. I am yet to fix it on the car.
    (http://cgi.ebay.in/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160581389278&ssPageName=ADME:B:PPOPN:IN:1123 ) . This is blue strip. The seller has even got white ones and they cost you around 199 for 2 pieces. Packet contains 1 pair strip.
  8. Once again a great thread from you viny, keep it up.

    Viny,

    I think the foot well LED lights can not be lit up when the door are closed, as you have connected the wires directly. Am I right? can you clarify this.
