    Smile Interior lights question...

    Hi all.

    About 4 (ish) years ago, I had some sort of Vectra for a few days as a courtesy car. I think it was a 2.2 SXi (petrol).

    I remember that it had a couple of orangey / red "ambience lights" next to the front interior lights, which cast a lovely glow around the heater controls / stereo area at night.

    Now I've got a Veccy ('04 plate 1.8 SXi), I want these lights in mine...

    Anyone know where I can get em?




    Cheers in advance

    It is the indirect night lighting and comes from the rear view mirror

    It can be retro fitted but you need to change the mirror and find a supply for it in the headlining.

    Is the mirror I need the auto dipping one, and if it is, do ALL auto dipping ones have these lights?

    it doesn't work like that.... the indirect night lighting is always on at night, unlike the interior light..

    as Caterman said, it's just an interior mirror swap.. and voila..orange glow on the gearshift at night from above..
