    Ambient Lighting Across Dash; Door Handles

    I recently took my 08 CTS to the dealership to replace the water pump. They Put me in a loaner car fresh off the truck with 17 miles lol. 2013 CTS, one thing I fell in love with, was the ambient lighting across the dash and in the door handle wells. I've felt the door handles in my car, and seems to be a slot up top for an led light as there is in the map reading lights area, when I got back into my car, I've noticed it is the same set up, meaning there is open area behind the trim for tube lighting across the dash. Does anybody know how to install or any ideason how to remove the trim if at all possible. Please help, because with a little help and direction....I am ready to jump on this project. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

    These kits are for the footwell lighting only.

    Give Rippy Cadillac(their ad is in the right hand margin) a chance to sell you the right parts. I haven't heard of anyone doing this upgrade and it might be very labor intensive as well as cost prohibitive.

    Good luck and keep us informed of your progress, Marv
