Mood lighting

Post by Markkelsall » Mon Jan 15, 2018 9:54 am

Anyone installed any mood lighting?? I really liked the red glow around the gear stick in the Astra J but my new sri doesnt have any in that area , would it be easily to do? Would like a soft white glow around the gear stick and in the door handles?/

Cheers

I did the gear shift surround glow without any OEM parts. Just basic stuff from Amazon. Pretty easy and it even dims with the rest of the interior lights and dash. There are various guides on this forum.

Now I'm looking into doing the same for the doors.

Yes I did Gearstick surround LED's and Door LED's too. For the gearstick surround I used the parts from the Astra J and changed the LED's to white. For the Door LED's I also used OEM parts from the Elite version of the Astra K.

Hmm, I have the ambient lighting on the doors but I haven't noticed one around the leaver. But yesterday I noticed the gap left there and I was wondering of its purpose. I'll check tonight, I think since I have my car almost fully specced that I should have it. But it's apperantly not noticable :DD

Yes, here is the Guide that I followed

It is in German but translator on Chrome does a good enough job. You have to create an account on the forum so that you can view the pictures

It was a modification, it's not standard on any of the Astra K's
