    Ahh,now i see that tiny light:whistle2: nice one CHEZ.

    One more question as my car came without a armrest is there likely to be a cable under the console to connect to it??

    Yeap, just attach to any night illumination circuit like buttons etc in console, as you wont need in the day realistically as I did mine on our S4 years ago.
