blue ambient light

I forgot to tell you that he FINALLY got around to changing my ambient light for me!! It's been pretty hectic! This was done not long after the new year started. I really like it! It's purdy!! Plus matches my car better.

Could you please send out a DIY? Was it really hard. I kinda like my Orange light....but I think I want the blue or the white LED.

Princess, nice light!

I actually like the subtle amber light more... It's easier on the eyes at night on those long lonely drives.... Someone wrote up a DIY somewhere on here. The hardest part of the install is taking the overhead console out.

He kinda cheated..... he had a bulb holder thing from another car....so he bought just the tiny bulb & replaced it. Having the Homelink made it a bit more nerve wracking in the respect of not wanting to mess with wires unintentionally.

It's really not much brighter. It makes a blue glow at the cup holders which will be great for night driving!! The amber one hardly lit up the lower area at all.... remember we have OLD eyes!!! We need more light!!

He was only out there a few minutes, but I couldn't be there 'cuz I had kids to chase. Afterward I did go out for a few minutes to check it out & snap a couple of pictures.

It only took him, what, a year to finally put it in.....? He kept forgetting when he had the time. It's done now & I'm very happy!!
