    as long as you cant see much of a glow from the outside youll get away with it.
    had neons in footwells in a few of my cars now. wiring up to a switch is easy enough, tap into the ignition live from the fag lighter. run to the switch. then from switch to both neons. then join up the 2 earths and either make an earthing point or tap intot he fag lighters earth

    id use the live from your cigrette lighter as well as the earth.

    mount yourself a switch in the panel were the Traction control button goes.

    then connect the earth and live to the cigerette lighters connections.

    that way you can have ur lights on and off, and use your cigrette lighter too

    and no they wont turn on with your lights, only if u press the switch
