    I guess you just hard wired it to the back of the 12V socket near the gear lever did you?

    u can get other colours .. was going to do it to the one in arm rest but for some reason that one stopped working but it did work :Frown:. so went to the front one in ashtry
    - - - Updated - - -
    i remove the rear bit with the 2 screws at the bottom and ashtray drilled a circular hole in ashtray and ad to file a little bit out of the rear of ashtray so wires did not hit, then drilled a little hole behind where the ashtray clips in for the wires to pass through then removed the cup holder so i could get the wires up to the front and joined them to fag lighter . hope this make sense :Smile:

    perfect, thought something along those lines. sounds like an easy mod worth doing.

    You don't even get that feature on more modern high end cars.... ace biscuits...
