Poster bobbypty was able to install the footwell illumination kit via the glovebox light, though having to add extra length to the wire due to it being designed to connect to the cubby hole. The glovebox LED is always on when the headlights are on. It is not connected to any switch within the glovebox door.
Thanks for that link. That would answer my wish for footwell and cubby lighting. Now to figure out an elegant way of illuminating the cup holders.
The cup holder solution in my TDI was interesting. VW didn't put the light in the cup holders themselves. Instead the illumination came from the console up on the ceiling of the car (where the sun roof knob was) and illuminated the cup holders from above. Those tricky Germans.
