You haven't read between the lines my friend... You missed the deliberate play on the words "subtle" and "discreet" ;) Good comedy angle though eh? Me kids love them! B)

I'd better explain... I'd actually forgotten i'd ordered these colour changing LED's, as i'd also ordered a pair of white SMD WHITE daytime running lights (strip stylee) To fit inside my headlights... After removing the headlights, and weighing up how i was going to bond the strips inside the headlights my mate suggested i ran some power through the strips first just to check they worked before i dremmelled out slats in the headlights... I had a shock when they lit up all mad colours, then flashed on and off! If i hadn't checked the strips, my headlights would have flashed multi coloured instead of my footwells! Reckon i'd have got a tug? :blink:

No piccies as yet mate... And a fitting guide is simplicity itself... I chopped off the universal wedge plug fitting from the SMD LED boards that were fitted instead of the standard "sidelight bulbs", soldered the plug onto the bare wired LED strip, insulated the connections with heat shrink, plugged them in, and put on my sunglasses! B)

The strips burst in to life as the doors are opened, or when the car is unlocked.

My WHITE LED strips arrived this morning, now that me and my daughter are almost through laughing at my comical footwell lights, i think i'll fit the plain white strips soon.

Cheers - when I fit my boring old unlit lockwoods I will feel sad now.

Please stop adding these great mods, the temptation is getting out of hand.
