Very good - but red would be better
MR ROBERT BALL on 09/04/2013 4 star rating

Does what it says on the tin. Installation is easy as long as you install the bulky adapter behind where the radio sits. Would be better if it used red rather than blue to blend in with the existing lights. Only issue is that the steering wheel controls sometimes freeze, requiring an engine restart for them to become active again.
