How about these:

I had them on my H and they were excellent. Very private from the outside.

Decided to work in the inside of the car today. Removed the side door trims, interior trim and centre control trim which was grey colour. Gone for Matt Black. Really happy with the finishImageImage

Love it. How did the heater controls come out?

Thanks Scotty_b. The heater controls unit has trim cover on top which can be removed using trim tool. I had to move the whole centre console forward though to remove the trim safely.

Just incase you didn't know how to do this
- using trim tool remove silver trim around the gear stick and remove two screws either side.
- the centre console is held by 8 clips, just pull centre console towards you gentle.
- using trim tool remove all centre console trim (around silver trim gearstick, poweflex section and heater section)

May have seen in another post but hardwired dashcam install before the snow over the weekend. £30 pruveeo dashcam off Amazon and nextbase wiring kit as it comes with a piggyback fuse which i wired to bottom row fourth fuse. Now comes on and off with ignition.ImageImageImage

So finally got the rear tinted. Cost me £80 in total from prestige wraps in West London. Done a great clean finish. When I got home i also tinted the rear lights myself. Car is dirty but this is what the rear looks like atmImage

I'm sure i was told the piggy back needs to be installed in 1 direction only and that was the opposite way to the way you did it with the wire pointing down??

Not sure what you are asking mate. it does not matter which way you install the piggyback fuse as it depends on the kit you buy and the best way for it to fit. Dash-cam works perfectly fine this way and works with the ignition.
here is a thread on this site about fitting dash cam viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3672&hilit=dashcam
