I went to auto zone and got two blue LED light strips. They are small, have adhesive backing & are BRIGHT!! i ran them through the ciggarete lighter for now but will hardwire them when i get the chance. Looks great.

i got the same ones i think, i got blue on all the overheads, but didnt really feel motivated enough to install the strips under the front yet. had fun testing them out with the little battery button they come with though, lol

I will take some pics tonight of the under dash ones & post. I also put mini pods under the driver & passenger seats that shine into the back seat and installed blue LEDs in the dome lights. WAY to bright to drive with but it looks awsome when opening the doors or unlocking the car. Everything including the dome lights cost about $40

I'm interested in this small mod. I was wondering what does "hardwiring" these little LED lights entail? I've been reading as much as i can but see various ways to do so. Probably what i'm looking for is when the car turns on the little blue LED's come on with the car...any help? Thanks in advanced!

Front domes are extremly easy. Just get a flat blade screw driver and insert it into the gap between the clear cover and the assembly and pry up gently cover should pop off easily. The back domes are a little tougher you have to completly remove the entire light assembly by pushing in two tabs at the same time with 2 flatblades. Deff a 2 person job. If you have a model with the sunroof like mine the bulbs for the front are http://www.v-leds.com/Interior-LED/DomeMap...D-p8194213.html and the rear domes for all models are http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/CornerS...R-p4481101.html. If your car has no sunroof its a different bulb idk the size. V-Leds.com is great tho. Good quality LEDs and fast shipping with good prices. By the way a friendly reminder dont touch the metal screwdriver on the metal contacts of the bulb plugs.....one of my friends learned that the hard way with his 2011 & blew every cabin fuse & fried some wires.

Mines a lease to. I talked to my service manager and they had no issues with me doing it. he said the LEDs draw less power then the stock bulbs. I just threw out that bit about the short in my friends to give a friendly reminder never touch metal on metal. They are easy enough to get out with your fingers. I'd say go for it man. Trust me the picture doesn't even begin to show how great it is in person!
