    hmmm.... fronts might be better linked to the lights (ie will only come on when the lights are on - ie when it's getting dark) with a switch in the middle to keep them turned off if need be (like when the cop is walking up to your window).

    but wiring them up to the cig lighter with a switch would also work fine.


    i'd use those LED strip things though (look like neons, but with LEDs) as they use less current and fire up instantly even in the cold (often i've seen footwell neons take a minute or 2 to actually come on

    then they are permanently on coo, if he wires them direct to the boot light then he automatically gets an on/off switch from the boot open/close switch


    more than enough thickness in those wires to support 2 led strips/neons - especially if the bulb isn't used.


    of course it's possible to get around the permanently on problem without having to manually switch them each time, but it's more work than it needs to be

    ive wired mine in the boot directly to the light in the boot and it works a treat, personally i would do the same in the front too.

    hahaha my mate has got neons in his Sazo VTR! How comical, and very true! can look good if there is a very slight glow (e.g Audi mood lighting) but any more than that and its a no no

    Personally I like the neon lit look, and if it's on a car of some quality i see no problem. The problem with the Saxos, is that the neons are their best feature
