    Does anyone know where I could find a wiring diagram of the gt2? I want to run ambient lights to the backseats.

    Curious, what do you plan on adding and where do you want to put them?

    Was in the back of a BMW 7 series recently. Lighting under front seats was rather neat.

    I added interior under glow LEDs front and back seats. I connected them to the cluster fuse located on the fuse box under the steering wheel. Then just find a ground.

    The leds will turn on when you press the push to start button which activates the cluster this way.

    The fuse adapters they give didint fit. I tapped into the cluster fuse. Wrapped positive wire around the fuse and put it back in its slot

    Here you go. I took pics with every ambient light available. The kit I have matches them very well.

    Purchased the LED kit from Opt7. Link is above.
    Placed LEDs where I wanted them to be located and ran wires back to power box included in the kit.
    For power i connected the positive wire to the cluster fuse. Negative wire was connected to bolt behind fam pedal.

    That's pretty much it. LEDs will turn on when you press the push to start button.
