Hello,

I bought this kit online from one of the infiniti retailers, I went to get a quote on installation from a regular autoshop and they said they can do it for $500, they will have to drill holes for each LED and the kit has 4 on each side. Does anyone know or did this before ? because I don't really want to pay this much for a $170 Kit.

Thank you

I was quoted about the same at my dealer. Main reason I changed my mind about it.

What is the part number for the grille you purchased?

Accessory instructions for Infinitis are freely available for download at www.infiniti-techinfo.com.

See if this link works for you: https://www.infiniti-techinfo.com/asistgc_1/USENG/diskdocs/1/V/F/1VF33.PDF

That will give you an idea of what is involved.

According to my official accessory price guide, the suggest installation for the illuminated grille is 1 hour. This suggested 1 hour is per Infiniti corporate. The $500 to install is excessive and out of line in this instance.

Hold on. I just went to left field on this one. I saw "radiant" and immediately thought grille.

The part number doesn't look to be applicable to a Q60, though. That looks like the Q50 part number you put in the title.

Still, though, the installation instructions can be found at the website provided and the welcome lighting kit shows to be 2.2 hours. I still think $500 is a little over the top.

have to drill holes for each LED? That's an extra 4 permanent holes in your Q60 and you won't be able to remove them if you change your mind.

It really shouldn't be that hard if you choose to tackle it yourself actually. A few holes under there really won't make difference to everything once no one makes a mess out of it.

A lot of times they'll drill extra holes in your car for certain rust protection systems.

Yeah, first issue I see is the part number you have up for the Welcome Lighting is not applicable to the Q60. Per the official Infiniti website, the Welcome Lighting Kit is T99F4-5CH0B.



Page 9 of 27. Drilling will be required.
I bought it on eBay and it said q60 part but I think I'm gonna resell it because it's too much.

I paid $480 to my dealer for the kit and install by the dealer at the time of my window tinting and Escort direct wire install (third party vendor). The dealer ended up keeping the car an extra day because they said the lighting install took longer than they anticipated.




I get a lot of compliments on the exterior ambient lighting.

OP, The installation of the kit is fairly smple and laid out in a you tube video. You remove the side skirts, clean them, measure to drill your holes equally apart and then double stick tape them to the back of the side skirt. There are pre existing holes in the car for the grommets that exist on the kits wiring taped over in the body. Simply remove the tape and feed the wires through until the grommet is seated in the hole to keep out water and debris. The wires are routed to the passenger side where there are preexsting wires to hook the kit up to and you should have received splicers with your kit. Splice them together to the correct wires and there you go. You will have to remove the kick panels inside the car and a part of the console at the bottom rear of it to route the wires and then install the parts after but they are all on clips that pop in and out.. Good luck if you kept the kit. It is possibly worth the 300 dollars to have it done but I will be doing mine myself. If you have knowledge of tools and cars at all it isn't 300 bucks worth of work. As far as INFINITI's concern about the holes you could always put grommets in the holes but as you stated they will never be seen under the car.
