    well i think i have sorted it i just need a fuse to check it fully, reason for my mistake was due to my plastic adapter that fits onto the w8 light, and that is because 1 to 6 was the other way around to the instructions on the first page lol

    All done, looks the Bombus terrestris patellas.

    One little wrinkle though, with 4 x LED bulbs installed, does anyone elses map lights glow very dimly when the lights are off?

    Part Numbers and Prices

    This is the parts needed so that you can create your own wiring leaving the originals intact in case you want to replace original when you come to sell the car

    3B7 947 105F 2EN - W8 Light no sunroof, grey x1 - £31.53 +VAT
    000 979 103 - Contacts x 2 - £1.11 +VAT
    893 971 993 - Housing x 1 - £0.61 +VAT

    000 979 131A - Terminal pin - steel x 2 - £1.07 +VAT

    Total £45.42 INC VAT This does not include bulbs or LED's though. But these are a matter of pence.

    Hope this helps some of you. :)

    If anyone wants the wiring adapter, I have made one up and have it for sale. I'm not fitting the W8 light now, seeing as the colour won't match the Cupra interior :(

    How have people who have kept the original plugs made the W8 light fit with the alarm in the way? can you move alarm back slightly? or trim some of the W8 light?

    Theres always one!!! I broke this while trying to remove the head light plug :( does anyone know the part number and if it comes as 2 bits or 1 bit?

    Unit thinks that the lights are on so the buzzer keeps goin off(actually the side lights are constantly on and i cant control the lights at all as the unit doesnt work.
