I'm not sure about the S pacl but the Berlina/Calais already has front footwell lights, which is just a T10 globe fitted near the door side in each footwell. Depends on what kind of lighting you want to do.

I have LED strips running in my lancer which i wired up by running a wire from the battery, though you can just use a 12v wire already in the car such as the cigarette lighter's power wire. Mount your strips, ground them, power them. Run parallel wires to the other footwells and repeat. I had them on a 3 way switch so I could control them like my cabin light. Door-Off-On. Have to wire the grounds to your door switches to do this though.

However, in the Holden, I just replaced the T10 bulb to a blue high output one and will probably run wire from the front lights to the rear and just use SMD strips. Will cost about $10-$20 for the lights.

If you want to get it professionally done. Talk to Phreddy from ASR. You can find him in the sponsors section.

I ran mine to the interior light wire under the driver's scuff plate. First, though I pulled off the driver's side B pillar cover to see which colour wire it was, then found that wire under the scuff plates. The courtesy lights come on with doors open but not if I switch the interior light on manually with the switch. I think it was orange with white stripe or vice/versa.
