they look great and really compliment the carbon dash surrounding them,

i reckon you should purchase a dremil type tool because most custom modifications will require the use of one,

and i also recommend a set of safety glasses because the dremil kicks out fragments in all directions,

but the dremil is a must have tool if fitting dual reverse units, rear bird bath lighting or st pod.

i love mine and it was given to me as a gift from a fellow member of the forum best gift ive ever recieved.

the rear footwell lighting is another easy and rewarding modification that i have done a guide on too.

I need to get me some of these! Do the knobs light up by themselves? I looked at the guide and it seems there is some lights behind the knob for the control display, do these new knobs light up from that?

Well done, once bitten, the modding bug is a hard one to shift!

awwwh thanks guys, yeah I've been scouting about looking for other things to do now! hehe

yeah the knobs light up as they have a transparent bit on them so when your lights are on they light up too which looks pretty cool :)
