    Lol.... money for parking...

    The conversion can be done by anyone who has a steady hand and knows how to micro solder... me... I paid someone to do it... £130 all in and worth every penny (I have had 4 cars done now...)

    If you want his details I can PM them to you... He is well known on the Astra and VXR forums and highlighy recomended.

    If you scroll to the bottom of page one on this post you will see all the stuff he did Including the TID to GID upgrade for me...

    Quite a lot of cars use the cig lighter illumination to light up the ashtray, rather than have a separate light for the ashtray itself. It's not at all unusual - after all, you don't need a massively bright light in the ashtray, just enough to see where it is.
