As a previous German marque owner, little things annoy me!

If any of you guys have had an Audi or a later VW you get tiny red leds in overhead interior lights, when night driving you get a warm red glow in the cabin, its that's delicate its hardly noticeable until you don't have it!

Bored with the drab and very dark (at night) interior I had a go at this cheap mod.

Noticing a unused blank on the roof lining and a bit of twin core wire and a handful of flat headed 5mm orange LEDs I have managed to get this little bit done!

I have also added some in the cup holders for a nice low light glow! I will add pics later in the dark!

Enjoy.....

Looks Cool,
Where did you tap into for power , is it linked into the head light switch circuit.??
Did you get your Leds from. Maplins?
What holds the plastic cover plate to the roof / lining.

Mudflap,
Where did you get the mirror cover plate? I want to remove my inside mirror since I am wiring up a rear view camera monitor. If I pull the mirror, there is a cut out in the headliner. I can't find that part in the USA catalogues. My van was equipped with rear door glass which I had limo tinted.
Thanks!

Hi TZ, these are a standard part in the UK, some of the vans have solid rear doors (no glass) and a interior mirror is not a fitted part, so we get the blank instead.
Where I placed the LED's I think I drilled through the part number, let me check it out for you.
