i like the car with the lights on. Is there no other way to connect them though as i wouldnt want them with my side light turned on, as i dont want to change the colour of the bulbs.

they are linked up to my sidelights, but i aint too sure about any other way... if you buy the expensive block ones that on the grill they link to the battery i think

ok then. iv just gone a bought a hynes manual and been looking through it until i got to the fuse box. It turns out there is a fuse for "daytime running lights" (iv got the mk6.5 btw)so there might be a way to do it through that. Also my dads an electrision so he said there is probably a way to hook it up to the ignition so you dont need any other lights on for it to work. so im going to order them tonight so hopfully they will arive near the end of the week.

I've just bought some too, and some red ones (just to be tricky!!) Is there any way they can be connected to the power [into] the starter motor? so when you start it, they come on? Or does anyone know of the roof ambient lights? as these are always on, as the other two only work with your lights!

Oh, and can I say, I'm a little scared of electricity!

I'm trying to catch my man at work, which is easier said than done, as he only works when he has work, so you have to catch him working to give him work! But he knowsan auto electrics man, which I will need to wire them up!! As he knows what he's doing, abd electricity scares me, I can wire a plug, but the car I need to get to work to earn money, to pay for it, and fill it up, to get to work, to earn money, to.....

i would be interested too see how this one goes with you wiring them to your battery... i didnt want too fuss about with it too much with the warranty stuff incase i ruined that!

Isn't the battery permanently live? so they would always be on?

Mine arrive all the way from the USofA, and a pair or red ones too, which I think will fit down the gap between the rear light and the boot lid perfectly! Will fit them Friday, then ring the auto electrics man, to see when he can wire them up, front ones dead easy, back ones, easier said than done!

I think, as I've attempted to try them, which is easier said than done, when they are vertical, but the gap between the lights, and the boot lid, they seem to fit!

BTW, I didn't want to stick them there, until I knew they'd fit!
