    Yes! Not sure I would go for them being on while the car is running along, but on opening the doors is quite a good idea :)

    Wire it up to the side lights, think it would like nice, aslong as its just a red glow and not neon bright.

    Wire them up with the sidelights and the doors, and on main beam, make them flash like a disco. :)

    Wire them up to your hazards or indicators for a laugh.

    How many LEDs will there be - how bright will it be?
    If not too bright then i'd say wire them to the ambient...

    Edit: Will you be able to dim them with the dimmer thingy?

    I thought they all had them, shows what i know, even my old 98 A4 had them and they came on with the doors.

    My choice is to come on with the doors, but knowing you i can see them being wired to the dash lights to be on all the time but dimable
