same here, I got a switch with orange LED indicator and mounted it under my E-brake, the black matched very close to the interior, the LED is a little more orange than the factory interior lights.

it involved a little work, and I don't remember if I have any photos from it anymore. basically you buy some 20-22 gauge wire and extend the signal wire for the relay to a switch inside the car, and back out to the relay. My switch needed a ground for the LED so I used one of the E-brake mounting bolts and an eyelet on the ground wire.

I ran it in through the rubber boot in the passenger footwell area, just used a sharp pick to poke a small hole in an unused nipple of it. then under the dash to the center console coming through the radio/shifter area.

EDIT:
heres my switch.
