    This is something i would really have like to have in our 6th gen. I like how in my brother Mercedes the switches are illuminated in the door panels. It give a nice "cockpit" feel.

    The other thing is that i'm always using my mirros when parking to avoid hitting my wheels but at night it's sometimes tricky to found that tiny mirror switch and i'm like, damn Honda why did you not illuminated those switches..!

    I saw a owner putting some night glow decals sticker in the switches, it's an alternative but i'm not sure were it will look homogeneous as the rest of the illuminated buttons.

    FNCONE took the switchgear from an RL which is illuminated, might be pics in his thread.

    I still have to install my illuminated windows switches and illuminated mirror switch. I think but not sure that for the windows doesn't require any mod, should be plug'n'play but to be confirmed by someone with better knowledge. The mirror one instead need some rewiring for sure. Don't recall having seen a write-up mod for the illuminated mirror switch.

    Unless you have a 4 door, wouldn't it only be 2 door switches on drivers side and the mirror adjustment? I spent a lot of time on my LED conversion and though fun, I wouldn't do it again. Seems like a lot of work for minimal differences. I would rather get a nicer headunit with a screen and add a back up camera, especially if you have to run any wires through the rubber harness protector thing, but even in the door, I don't want more wire to worry about when removing the door panel.
