    I agree with Fran. I am trying to sort out a group buy here for members that want a 'mod'. Its a simple thread with no need to get heated.

    In the end Paddy i do agree with you in the part where 'should you be putting a bose sticker on your car if you dont have bose' but at the same time... Its up to the owner of the car what they want to put in it.
    If someone wants to save £1 on a mod then good for him, likewise if someone spends £100 more on a mod then thats HIS/HER loss, no need to make silly comments on a tank of fuel. not everyone here has money pouring out of their pockets. I appreciate your opinion but I dont think its fair to push it... in the end its just YOUR opinion. By all means if you want one of these Bose grills then add yourself to the list.

    On the other hand Paddy does have a couple of valid points... even if he is an old fart
    Can i just ask that we keep it civilised here and no need to childish comments or remarks!
    Also Scott_Hol, mate type in proper English... not all of us understand slang

    Anyway getting back to the thread! I have asked the seller a couple more questions and am just waiting on his reply

    In order to illuminate these, you would need to earth one of the wires then tap the next into a blue/grey interior lighting wire. There should be one in the door loom as the mirror switch/window switches are illuminated. This way they will brighten/dim along with the interior lighting switch beside the headlights.

    Just get a couple of scotchlok connectors and it will take seconds.

    Scott, mate! If you want to fit something to your car - do it.. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, as long as you're happy.. I think these are a good mod, that lifts the slightly bland interior a little, without looking like something you got from halfords. I think it's a good find mate, and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what they look like installed...! They remind me a little of the illuminated sills on me mates merc G-Wagon....

    Yeh literally if the front speakers say Bose then the system is a Bose system. Otherwise it's a standard sound system

    These were not as expensive when I fitted them. They were 45 Euro. Anyway, here is the original link which explains where the power comes from. I took mine from the electric window lighting switch.....not the illuminated door light

    OMG snap! i just got this back after 3 weeks from him regarding the button positions for our cars:

    Hello,

    Thank you very much for your email!

    Pos.1 (left side of the ESP Pushbutton)
    Pos.2 (right side of the ESP Pushbutton)

    It doesn't make any differend between RHD and LHD

    Friendly Regards
    Thomas Pucher
    So the blank on my car is between the ESP button and the hazard light (which is left of the ESP) so is that Pos.1?
    confuses me since LHD cars have the buttons on the other side of the console

    Hi All, can anybody tell me if the illuminated Bose speaker grilles can be fitted to cars without ambient lighting ? Mine doesn't have the illuminated interior release handle so I would have to tap into the window switch - can this be done?

    Thanks in advance.
