    Default Front Map Reading Light Upgrade

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...category=10404
    what is the benefit of me upgrading to this? , and how easy would it be to change?
    my car only has the one button to operate the light, this seems to have four? what do they all do?

    Doddle to change..... one switches main light on, one works left map light, one works right map light, one stops lights coming on when doors are open..... I think they are cheaper from dealer though ...

    The question you should be asking yourself is when have I needed my
    interior light.

    I thought about one and realised I had never needed to use the light. Didn't buy one but bought the sunglasses holder instead. Useful for all sorts of storage.

    what does the stealer charge for the part?
    do you have the code?
    is it easy to do (are all the connections already there? )

    Dead easy to connect, just swap the connector over and it works! Dead simple.
