I was recently looking at my friends BMW (his dad is a mechanic engineer in the Chicagoland office from BWM) and I noticed when he unlocked the doors, LEDs turned on under the door handles on the out side of the car.

So I got thinking, LED strip(3-4 LEDs total per door), RVT silicon to seal holes to be drilled in the door, and tap into the dome lights for power with a fused line. Do this on all 4 doors. I figure this way, they would have the nice fade in and out when the car is locked/unlocked. The only problem I can see is the LEDs would turn on if you turned on if you turned on the dome lights. I guess fixable by just using the map lights.

What do you guys think? Would it work? Would it be difficult? Opinions please!
