    Default Interior Light

    Thinking of changing the interior light in my Sri for the one with the reading lamps. First of all would this be a straight swap? Phoned the local dealer who tells me that although they have them, they are only for fitting into Police cars and he reckons you can get pulled over if you use the reading lights while on the move??

    Any thoughts?

    Mine has map lights built in plus the sunglasses holder the Police spec ones have a fourth button AFAIK that will turn them off tis the only difference.

    I've got the 4 button one in mine mate. Straight swap. Prize off the plastic cover that overs the light bulbs, there are 3 torx screws to undo, and the clips at the side. Undo the plug, plug into the new interior light and refit. Simple As for only allowing the police to have them, that's absolute rubbish. Most higher spec cars have them as standard and are a recognised part. Fit it and think no more of it

    Only if you want the buttons to be illuminated if they are not you either have to take power to them from other place.. or fit new roofloom..

    I went from a 1 button interior light to the 4 button one in my 06 SRi, straight swap and everything works fine, no need to modify the loom at all...plug and play

    Sounds good, I've got a 56 plate Sri with the single switch. Where did you get the 4 button one from?
