Glad to be of assistance.

I got the lights cheaper, so shop around, maybe even try AutoZone. I wired the switches so that whatever door opened would turn on the lights. I had to bend the lever to have an offset and be in the plane I needed it, in reference to the door swing. I plan to do this on the new 5er, but since I plan to mount a flip/swing out tv in the basement, I'll have to make some sort of override at that door. I may also consider the LED strip/tape for the lighting as well.
