I finally got round to fitting this now that my car is no longer under warranty. As other reviewers have said, this is a bit tricky to fit. The supplied graphical instructions are very difficult to follow and the information provided is a bit limited. For example, you have to tap into existing wiring using 'scotch lock' type connectors, but the instructions only point to the general direction of the wiring loom and don't explain how to properly locate and disconnect the correct connector block in the confined space of the footwell. You also have to drill two large holes to accommodate the LEDs in the footwell plastic trim. As another reviewer said, it would have been nice if this kit had been 'plug & play'. Whilst the outcome is really pleasing with much improved interior lighting, I couldn't recommend this kit for DIY fitting unless you were reasonably confident dabbling with cars. Overall, a very nice outcome, but challenging to fit first time round.
