Small update...

Installed OEM led license plate lights today.

No cutting involved, just removed the actual holders from the trim as they are only pushed in place. The OEM units fit almost perfectly but there's nothing to hold them in properly so used little bit of hot glue to keep them in place and used heavy duty windscreen bond to secure them. It will also hopefully stop them being removed.
Made new loom for them too and had to shave off little bit from plugs. Not a problem either as rubber wire grommets will still fit and should stop any water getting in.
There's small lip seen but that doesn't bother me.
Overall delighted with the way it all came outImage.

Ignition ring with LEDs fitted.
Had it lying around for ages as I tried to modify it for the R32 but the experiment went wrong.
Had to replace the leds which work perfect.
No excuses for not being able to find the hole LOL

Haha tell me about it!

Unfortuantely its not an oem part but matches perfectly the red illunination.
You can get it at around $99 from ECS Tuning or £93 from Awesome apparently.
It's has choice of 3 leds installed- red, blue or white led.
You just have to decide which color you want to use (wires are color coded).

I love it!
