Having seen the BMW 7 series ambient lighting, it gave me the idea to try it on my Qashqai. I installed around the panoramic roof trim and in the door cards. I installed the main light so it cannot be seen when sitting, you just get the ambient glow on the door armrest and around the roof lining. Very easy to install and cheap to buy. I just used the existing connections in the doors and the roof light was run down the A pillar to the power socket. Once you lock the car, the ambient light will remain lit for about 10 seconds and then turn off.

Nice - especially the doors - what did you use?

EL wire

The wire I used comes with a wide edge attached so it fits into gaps more easy, but it also comes without the edge.
