    Default Best Footwell/Floor Lights

    Whats the best lights to use for footwell lighting?
    Neons? LEDs, SMD?
    Going to be fitting some soon.
    Had a look and they can probably be wired to the ashtray lighting wires in the front or else extended from the roof light.
    Thinks the ashtray light is more easy.
    Looking to do them in a blue.
    Any1 recommend using neons, led strips or smd's??
    Thanks

    LED strips, cheap as chips. If it is wired to the cig lighter will they only come on when you turn the lights on? do you not want them on when you open the doors?

    Looks like SMD strip lights it is then.
    Decision made. Thanks.
    And Ginge your right, much better wiring them 2 the interior light.
    Would a separate on/off switch cause any trouble which the canbus system or has any1 had any trouble with it?

    Thumbs up Fitted

    Fitted the foot-well lights and the boots 2.
    Used SMD LED strips. Top Notch!
    Wiring the small connections can be a nuisance but got there in the end.
    Thanks 4 helping with the decision.
    In my opinion, make sure to stay away from neon tube ones!
    Pictures should be attached.
