I can't see the point of it full stop to be honest. Just a gimmick really. Yes, looks nice but...

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Thanks agentdr8, that's a great effort. Personally I wouldn't want to resort to operating the dome light manually. It would have to be a 'complete' solution.

If you could write up the next part, I'd really appreciate it.

Ideally I'd want somebody to test the whole thing before I'd attempt it myself.

Dear Dave,

that's an excellent write up and idea ... but I do think that I do also need maybe some more help to apply that instruction :D ... 

Could you do a photo as well of how that is looking like right not in your footwell? and now asking maybe too much ... post a link to the relay you used? ... seems like 12V relays are an absolute standard part which can be sourced from everywhere

Best

Christian

Sure thing Christian. You can use any 12V SPDT automotive relay; I opted to use a micro-relay I had lying around, which I'll be replacing with a 2ch relay module once I locate that dome light wire. And if you didn't want to get a relay module, you could adapt the wiring to a single DPDT relay and achieve the same result.

Thanks. That's fantastic. I'm just waiting to see if you can find the wires for the dome light.

Success! I spent a few hours today installing my amp and subwoofer, and while I had it all apart, I located that dome light purple & white wire, and successfully cabled it up to my 2ch relay module. Now I have dome light fade in/fade out during ingress/egress and mood lighting when headlights are on. I took more pictures and will post them up tomorrow (err, later today); time to get some rest.
