just wired a blue set of leds into mine..
but they were more like these...
http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=item5192a02c46

simples to wire in.. there is a spare capless socket behind the glove box and another one under the steering wheel taped to the wirring.

remove the glovebox (3 screws underneath ) and you will see the socket taped to the bottom of the cavity under the fuse box..either remove the terminals and join the wires to them or cut the socket off and wire your own lights into the wires.

i have a set of blues fitted and they work when you
1 open the door then stay lit as would the interior light on a delay
2 turn the car off once again with a timer delay
3 unlock to car with the remote.

depends whether you want them on all the time or just to illuminate the footwells when stationary though..my advice would be to install an inline fuse if you wired them through any other circuit though.

have fun.
