Didn't see a section for interior mods. I retrofitted the OEM ambient lighting door trim to my 2015 Canadian Touareg. Sourced the 4 panels off eBay.de and the connector pigtails off AliExpress. I absolutely love this simple and subtle mod, makes the interior seem much more cool at night. <img src="https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> My MK7 Golf R had blue ambient door trim and I thought it was neat, and missed it in the Touareg.
Install wasn't too terrible. Most nerve-racking part was melting and re-melting the tweeters, they're held in place by melted plastic posts. <img src="https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/images/smilies/icon_sad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Sad" class="inlineimg" />

Connector 4B0972623 ( x8 ) (I bought a pack of 10 from AliExpress)
Comparison. You can see the "white" stripe along the bottom edge.
Comparison. You can see the light module
Next I want to retrofit the OEM illuminated sill panels, just like my MK7 Golf R had:
Wouldnt mind doing this.
So all you need is these parts ie door trim and connectors?
Remove the old- do the tweeters and thats all?
Connectors are plug and play?
