Do you mind me asking if the illuminated retrofit was complicated?

I also replaced mine with the illuminated one and was very easy indeed. Hardest bit was getting the spare tyre out and popping out the original treadplates but it is plug and play and so easy to install. Got a great price on eBay via LR dealer. Makes opening the boot more dramatic. Sad but true!

It is very quick and easy to retrofit it ! It took me less than 5 minutes :) The hardest thing to do is to remove the spare tyre !

Part No is VPLYS0456. Got this for £150 - retail price is £368. Marshall Lincoln though I think this was an old stock intel they were trying to get rid of. I’ll get some pics.
