I still do not understand why we can not splice into the interior light wire located near the fuse box (e.g. domelight wire) and connect to footwell light with LED blubs (so that very little current is drawn from the circuit). Most of the inside light does not have canbus control so LED bulb should be fine. That way we do not exceed the max current and avoid going in to the footwell light module. Thank you for your input.
I am sorry I forgot to mention that I have a 3 series BMW with exactly the same problem. I have bought the footwell lights but worried about where to connect them.
