    Default Blue LED's, USB charging and glovebox cooling

    While on holiday I decided to complete a few tasks that have been on my to do list for some time.
    First up was glovebox cooling. Got the control valve from the dealers and the vent trunking from Paulhb (thanks mate)
    Next up was a USB charging point as mine, the wifes and daughters phones all charge via USB.
    Followed by a blue LED conversion. Thanks to Lee Gsi for the How 2. It definitely makes driving at night easier on the eye.



    For some reason the Radio power button and Heater control red don't show up too well on the pic but they are a deep red in real life

    At the inlaws in southern Poland so was seeing that sort of temp regularly. so glad I had the aircon recharged before going, even better that it was free.

    Cheers mate, your guide worked a treat. Only a couple of differences with the heater control panel and I have a different stereo but got there in the end. Can't believe how easy'ish it was

    I'm thinking of getting different LED's for the steering wheel controls as they are quite bright. Although I can dim them I like the dash bright.
