I think a Poor mans version can be made.. Four LEDs hidden under the emblem might have a good affect. ..
But I agree.. $$$

There were some detail differences (eg no shims on my cover) and I reused the old logo instead of buying a new one (just used some carefully trimmed double sided tape to fit it.

Looks excellent :)

Onto the kick plates this weekend

Oh it's also worth mentioning that you loose the clock (not surprising) but also your charging and climate control timer when you disconnect the 12v battery. I expected those settings to be saved somewhere

I mean the parts cost should be <$20, right (and the LEDs are a small part of that)?? It looks so good though...

Lost those settings again last weekend...because I disconnected the battery to install this!

from the original grey plastic:

to stainless, shiny, LED coolness
Image

this was the kit, typical Nissan great quality and everything included (except English instructions, but hey I bought it in Japan!)
Image

2 connections required at the a pillar, plus running the cables
Image

In a lot of ways this was a better mod than the front logo (I've almost never seen it, so I forget how cool it is). Whereas with these I remember every time I open the door, they are impossible to miss with LEDs

That is just too cool! I bet it costs more than the charging lid logo since there's more parts (I shudder to think).
How hard was it to access the 12v connections in the pillar? How much dis-assembly? I doesn't look like the kick-board would be the hard part.

Ahh yes I should have mentioned.

There were some very simple trims to remove but the A pillar has special clips, I assume due to the airbag. The parts supplier warned me I would need 4 new clips and included them in the order. In the end I only stuffed one of the old clips, and now I know how they work I might be able to disassemble without stuffing any next time. It's not super tricky but not straightforward either.

Hi there, I am looking at your web-site to find the backlit logo, but no luck... do you still have any for sale? I would also be intersted in the door sills with lights... they look cool!
