    Will see what this thread produces

    I have bought a pack of 4 LED "Prism" Micro LEDS from Halfrauds in red (can get white, pink or blue too) for £5.

    These need only a 6MM hole and include a snaplock holder, have not fired one up yet to see how bright/intense/hot one is, am considering one pointing down to the darkness of the storage behind the gear lever too.

    What armrest have you got and how much, I need one too

    Fired up the laser red led from Cig Lighter and tried under radio storage, more like a spotlight than a spread of light and not tooooooo bright, in fact pretty much like an SAS assassin laser!
    Can't make my mind up yet on whether suitable or whether two might work.

    Which "ones" are they Dave and where from?

    I can't write tutorial.. my friend did it.. but basicly.. you need to pull wire from cigarete lighter, add a small button switch and connect to passat light.. there is a place where that light was suposed to be.. I saw the other day one new leon that has light in glowbox by default..

    Could you not just fit the one from the Cupra?

    is there any point putting a light in the glovebox given that you can baerly fit anything in it thats usefull?

    I manly use the little under passenger seat store. Ive got in there:

    - Satnav + cradle when not in use
    - Can of irn-bru for emergancies
    - small 12v fan heater
    - vagcom cable
    - hand/face freshening wipes

    As for the glovebox, i can hardly fit in a 3.5mm mp3-aux cable allong side the user manuals!

    I checked on ETKA right up the latest 2010 model year and I cant find any reference to a glovebox light anywhere It would be interesting to get a vin number off a car with one fitted, maybe Im just missing something :confused:

    Seems like its a MY09 thing (58 plate) onwards rather than a Cupra thing.
