    If you got red marker lights already its so easy ...all you need is a clear light a sharp knife a bit of wire and a bit of welding wire ... First cut the hole out found under your door card with the sharp knife then pop out the red light at the side of your door card .. Then push the welding wire in the hole and feed it in so it pokes out the hole you have just cut then tape 2 bits of wire to it (live and earth) then join to the wire that powers the red light on your door .... Easy and you don't even have to remove your door card

    Ive had a set of these knocking about in a drawer for ages, if it's as easy as you say Gordy I really should get them on!
    I want them under door not on mirrors, wonder if there is enough clearance?

    go to scrap yard look out for a passat ...look at bottom of doors and you will see the proper lights you need you could even rob the wire as your there then all you need if you want led lights is the bulbs .. So cheap on eBay you get about ten for the price of one in halfolds

    As said above, scrappy is your best bet, I got about 10 puddle lights and door markers for 50p! Then made my own loom and wired into the factory socket and all works well
