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.
