    used to have footwell lighting on the drivers side in my volvo s40, nice little touch.

    if it's not a pain to do then i'd say go for it, maybe even do a little How 2 on it.

    sounds like an inexpensive mod

    I'd be tempted to do something with orange LED's, to match the convenience lighting.

    Best way to achieve this is simple, get a lighter socket thats illuminated in the colour you want, £3 or thereabouts, wire them into the live side and hide them up under the dash with just enough show to project the light down into the wells. hth.
