The rear lights of the ND align with the boot shut line and it was only a matter of time before someone sold an add-on to brighten the rear end.
I first saw it on a white car and it looked amazing, but after fitting it to my blue one, the LED light got a bit lost so I added a 3M reflective strip (20mm width) which is available on most of the on-line stores.
Here are a sequence of pics showing the install - again, easy to do and no tools needed.
A waterproof strip of LED's (very bright type) are stuck to the boot lip. The wire is threaded through the supplied grommets and inside the boot lid, to come out by the bottom hinge. This is the fiddliest bit of the whole process. Make sure the grommets are the correct way around BEFORE getting them on the wire. Lay it out on the ground and "dry-fit" before fitting. I speak from experience here.
I went with the wire on the driver side (because of another mod, will post later). The kit comes with FULL instructions, so don't think it's like IKEA.
This is what it looks like fitted to the boot lid. You can see the reflective tape, even with the lights off, it looks good.
