What did you use pal. Was it one of the led strip kits off ebay or something different? Have you put them on a switch or used the wire at the back of the light switch?

Cheers

A roll of Blue led strip wired via a switch under the steering wheel and then back to the BCM
cost more for the leds and wire than it did for the SQ5 seats :D

Yesterday replaced half the LED’s in my stereo but then ran out.
Today, took my cluster apart for needle swap and found the needles I got for a touran won’t fit my caddy :(

Bugger all today. Swmbo decided that her Leon needed to have a pre winter detail

Stripped back with poor boys 2 then 1, machine polished back to a lovely shine with super resin polish, quick run over with bilt hamber micro fine and treated to 2 coats of bilt hamber double speed wax

And all the time I was doing that the caddy sat there looking very sorry for itself
