    Default Engine Bay LED lighting

    Hi

    Ok so I'm still an Essex boy at heart!

    Has anyone put an LED lighting kit in their engine bay? I'm looking to do it on my 488 put a red LED kit in there and wanted to know how you went about doing it?

    Did you buy an off the shelf kit or DIY?

    Where did you pull the live feed from? And how did you switch it? Remote or on with the lights?

    Regards

    Michael

    Just no.........

    Seriously, each to their own, but you’ve got a great looking car, adding ‘neon’ will just look ‘tacky’. Just imo, I’ll reassess if you do it and it actually looks classy

    Anyone with taste will chastise you for it, Sy, nothing to do with the Ferrari community.

    Combined red/white/red led lighting. ie make your engine bay look pink. Yep, very cool ...

    Great video on how to put LED lights on a car with a solid metal bonnet. Unless you drive round with the bonnet open whats the point ???

    At least with a mid engined Ferrari you can see the lights when they are on. How about setting them up as shift lights ..... green to change gear .......... red linked to the rev limiter as a warning that the engine is about to blow

    Here’s a link to a guy who’s done it to a 458 and his e-mail is in post #185.
