    Same as mine and must admit it does look a little out of place but also bare in mind it is also a button to turn off the interior sensors.

    Blue high intensity flashing LED, fitted into the bottom of the rear view mirror... you can see if the car is locked from inside the house.. :bulb

    I quite like the idea of this as the M mirror has the housing for it already, I think it would be an addition rather than a replacement so not to lose the ability to turn off the sensors.

    well with some help from g8jka and a little pressy through the post we now have a full new up and running LED....cheers buddy ;)
    when i sat in the car this morning i looked at the mirror...and started pondering how i was going to fit it..... luckily i took a drink out with me and low and behold there was a much easier solution....the LED is so bright you can even see it in the daytime B-)
    what do you think
