Project Complete


Had planned to get a remap but don't really fancy spending the money now

And if Zetec S leathers with red stitching pop up then I may still purchase those

But that's it now, pretty much done everything I had in mind, is a pleasure to be in and look at

Plan to get a new car early next year

BMW 123d Coupe M Sport

Sapphire Black
Auto
Black Boston Leather
Aluminium Trim
Sat Nav (iDrive)
Xenons
Facelift Lights
Cruise Control

You use the same 2 plugs already there


But then you need one of these Spade Connectors and a length of 5 amp wire to connect the red leds to the side lights


Hi Ben, I've got myself the light, the wiring, the spade connector and a cable lock so I'm ready to install to my mk7 but would like a wee bit more info.

How long did it take to get the wire down/up to the side lights and how hard was it to get the a trim off and the light console out to plug it in at the back.

I'm currently reading over your bit and this one... http://www.fordfiest...&fpart=all&vc=1 , looks simple but knowing me I'll have a go and break something or it'll take a whole day!!!

It taken about 10/15 mins to do

Take out the existing light by pushing the tab on the forward side of the light

Put your arm up behind the lower trim (from by the pedals) and reach to the back of the light switch, it has a massive catch on the top and bottom that you need to squeeze and push out the switch

Crimp the spade connector on the length of wire

Push the wire to where the interior light goes from the front of the roof lining by the windscreen

Then make sure you have enough to be able to remove the light in the future

Run the wire across the top of the roof lining by pushing it in

Then remove the rubber door seal on the upright at the front of the car

Run the wire behind the A pillar on the side closest to the car door then tuck it through the gap to behind the light switch

Use a multimeter to find out which wire is for the side lights

Then connect how you wish

Hi Ben , we have never spoke before but i just want to say i have never seen anyone before on a forum that has put so much effort and time into their car as much as you have , i have not had the time to read all 26 pages ( i think i need glasses lol ) what impressed me was the rear defusor , i think that looks the nuts , however i wonder what the side skirts would look like in the same colour ? I have seen expensive range rovers with different colour bonnets to the rest of the car and looks quite striking. As other forum members have said and quoted good and bad feedback you will recieve , but I am glad to see this has not detered you from carrying on with future mods , you keep going sunshine and if i were you and not already i would open up my own business doing what you love and getting paid for it. Now my eyes have rested i will carry on flicking through this topic , chin up son you done very well indeed

PS can you not buy an armrest with a type that lifts up behind to stand vertical , hence not in the way of handbrake at all ?

Finally got some spare time and dry weather so managed to fit the st light :) shame about the scratches up my arm trying to pop the light switch out but GREAT SUCCESS! Can't wait for it to get dark to see it properly. Cheers Ben
