Done up the centre console. Use location F42 (12V 7.5A) from the fuse box under our steering wheel. Connected 4 Bright blue optic fibre to it and enhance the interior.

Thanks for the compliments. The brightness is fixed and it may looks bright under the pics taken, but actually is not. Probably the pic taken under the darkness of the underground carpark. LoL..

Hi, I got this kind of fibre optic leds from eBay. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F182454898870 My setup was basically 2 blue Led for the dashboard on both ends, wired it to the fuse box. Another 1x blue Led for the centre console on each side that run all the way to the rear. These made a total of 4 Leds and approximately 5-6meters of the fibre optics. Let me know if you need more clarity. Cheers...

Will do thank you, I just tried this weekend the bug and Tar remover and it seemed to work realy well on the center vent. Unfortunately about a week ago i tired Alcohol on the pasenger side vent and turned it a a grey color. So goig to move on with the bug and tar stuff unless you have a better idea.

For sticky buttons and vents, I use autogylm engine cleaner and it did well too. The sticky stuff on those buttons come off easily but the aircon vents may take a few times. The rubber layer for vents seem to be thicker so can only remove the sticky on surface layer and treat it with autogylm Vinyl & Rubber treatment to restore the feel.
