Hi I want to fit led strip lights to my mini under the dash and under the rear seat. How do I go about this?

Look on eBay for 12v LED RGB strips, here's one i picked at random

You can choose any colour via the controller, and they're flexible and self adhesive , so easy to fit

All sorted thanks. For some reason they only come on and off with the driver door switch not the passenger and I still can't get the interior light to work but never mind.

try the wiring the other way round of the leds as some used to be + - correct for them to work.

Ive never tried them, but have been kicking around the idea of adding a little strip of LED tape in my corners as a replacement for the bulbs.
