    the buttons are a simple pug and play job. there's a video on his site for it. i have two of them on mine - s-line and Audi.

    gently insert a flat head screwdriver into the gap to the left of the cover and turn it and the cover should slide out. you could use a sturdy piece of plastic either if you don't want to risk damaging the glovebox door.

    you'll be able to take a tap off the cables on the dash buttons when you fit them. they take their feed from the interior illumination pins on the ESP button.

    you'll also need to make sure you have the cables the right way around because the LEDs only work if the current flows in the right direction.

    oh **** that what it must be lol, well i put everything back together again, i guess i have another try tommorrow,so when i put the new buttons in and tap it from the ESP can i also tap the current from the ESP for the cup holder light or am i tapping too much from one source??

    Well you need to check the current drain as its very low about 300ma on the illumination circuit for the led's, just test it & see if the led you take your circuit of dims atall when connected to your cupholder, if not then cool, if is then need to take of another circuit, ashtray area has one there hidden underneath if you just have the storage area or cig lighter area.

    i would prefer the same light level too, so if it does dim where else can i wire it up, any ideas? so far i have blew 2 LED bulbs when tapping the ashtray light, i think it must be that i am connecting it the wrong wire, as LED only works if the current flows in the right direction.

    there should be no problem taking the feed from the back of the ESP button. I have two of the cargravo buttons coming from there and the lights did not dim afterwards. If you order the glovebox emblem the fitting notes tell you to take the feed from the same place. The LEDs are using that little power that it is really not going to matter a whole pile if you add one or two more on to the circuit.

    If Marc's done already then take his word for it, I've just used a spare illumination circuit that wasnt used, for something I wanted to light up.
