  12. Hello David, I've seen posts talking about the interior light upgrade that you do. Can you tell me the cost for converting my iQ please? I'm in St Albans (M25 J21a). Thanks, Peter

      Hi petet

      There are a couple of options

      first is a modification to your existing Dome light, this changes the quarter watt Led Module to a 3Watt versuon and brings the module forward increasing the beam angle so the increased light output coversthe whole of tbe front area and partially tbe rear. 

      Second option is to fit 2 mini Dome lights in tbe rear, in tbe roof linning inside the rear hatch door. These 2  rear lights are controlled from the main Dome and mimic's whatever the main Dome does. These 2 extra mini domes cover the hole of the rear and "Boot" area when tbe seats are down flat. 

      There is a one day turnaround if you would only  like the main Dome modified, in which case you return it to me and i will return it to you modified. Its very easy to remove  and re-fit. If you would also like the 2 rear mini domes they can be supplied as an add on kit (some installation skills required in running cable in the roof lining)

      the cost of tbe Dome modification is £25 plus £3.50 return postage and the rear 2 mini dome kit  is £25. If you would like both, i can come to you supply and fit for a total cost of £65. 

      Kind regards

      Hello David, thanks for the reply. I'd like to get the full modification for £65. How would you like to proceed? I could give you my mobile number and you could contact me when it's convenient? Let me know. Peter

      Sorty Peter didn't see your reply. Only by luck someone was asking about a sharkfin Antenna. Yes give me your mobile number and we can make arrangements. Available most days limited on weekends but should be able to work something out. If you want the whole mod then no need to send dome in advance will do it all at yours. Just need a space like a kitchen table ans somewhere to plug in a soldering iron. 

      My number is 07590009272


  13. Yes i am sure when you seporate the connector it puts a short on the cable indicating to the alarm all is well David
  14. I temoved minr in 2011 to cover the seats in leather. I think the connector, when removed puts a short across it keeping the alarm happy but its 5yrs ago memory not what it was David
