  3. 12v switched feed

    Has anyone tapped into a decent 12v switched feed in the cabin? Looking to add a USB & accessory socket up front (if you know a good quality USB/cigarette socket too, would be great, seen some poor quality ones) Thank you.

  12. Auto Lights (retrofit)

    Nice modification to the basic car if you haven't got the premium plus package. (Acknowledgements to Kate/Lil'smartie for the headsup) 15 to 20 minutes to do. You will need one of these: https://s20.postimg.org/442afhuzx/DSC03339.jpg
