Question

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience in changing the interior lighting (green) of Skoda Octavia? The color of choice is blue or red (like VW). I have read up Briskoda that I can use a Golf kit to replace OE ones - problem is sourcing and finding someone qualified to fit it. Are there any other ways to do so? I do not want to use any filters to the existing lighting for sure.

Ideas please on how to do this and who can do it in Chennai? Also, how much will it cost?

Thanks,
-P.

Insane,

I actually meant both. There are LED replacements for the bulbs as well. I would not mind white if I can get them, like the Accord. Some stuff from Briskoda - I wish I was a little more hands on to do these kind of things Its also a great place for Octavia resources.

Mr. Monkey here is obsessed with lights - flashing, glowing etc. He likes his lights and has jazzed up his RS with a few of them. Strange he hasn't posted here yet.

Service station and installing? Yeah right! I have to give them instructions and guide them through the VAS most of the time.

Blue Vision 100/90 is awesome - I am very happy with it. The brand is Phillips. Check out this link: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/access...dlamps-16.html

Thanks,
