I just had my interior lights done with Precision LED.com kit and am very pleased.

I bought the car with LED's already installed and they were very dim and they flickered alot. So they needed to be replaced. I heard about this company through friend and am they were great in assisting me to get a kit made for our cars.

I bought the base kit which comes with trim tools! The license plate lights and trunk light strip. I also got backup lights which are extremely bright and effective at seeing through my rear tint, which will be available soon online.

The provided tools made install a breeze.

Here is a link to their site to purchase this kit.

Here is the how-to install that was made using my car.

Enjoy.

The color I purchased was 8000k (bluish-white). They also have 6000k (crystal white) available.

I'll post up some pictures later today.

So, did I add correctly? About $81 for the whole enchilada?

Good vid, btw.

It depends on what you get. There are different options like vanity lights, license lights, Reverse lights, trunk light instead of the strip light that I got.

$43 will get you all the interior minus flip down vanity lights. Our vehicles don't have glove box lights either.

I also got the 20" strip light which is $24.99 and lights up the trunk amazingly. Will post some pics shortly.

Just ordered. Nice! I added the glove box bulb not even thinking. Oh well hopefully they'll just take that off the total, if not..extra led bulb I guess.

Trunk strip (iphone pic) appears much bluer from phone than actual.

Seems like this happens every year about this time.

Do they dim, fade out with the lights ?

They fade out after you lock your car and the light timer goes off. There is no dimmer switch that controls those particular lights. The dimmer only controls backlit buttons and the gauge cluster.

I didn't see where I could get a set of reverse light bulbs like you have pictured, any tips?

You're best bet is to email them at sales@precisionLED.com asking about the reverse lights.

They will get back to you about availability.

Back-up bulbs are on back order hence the reason they're not on the website. They expect them in about two weeks.

Great Vid.....just purchased the trunk LED strip....

Thanks. I think the LED strip is one of the best upgrades ! The stock trunk light in our car is pretty terrible. It's small and not very bright. The LED strip lights up the trunk like a stadium at night.

Any opinions on color guys?

Can't decide between the 6k and 8k.

I definitely want the 'LED' appearance, but I definitely don't want an interior with a heavy blueish hue to it.

Input appreciated!

You want 6k, which will still have a slight blue-purple output.

I'm waiting for them to have the back-up lights in stock before I order. Should be a few more days.

Just got the LED strip in in the mail....quick shipping and GREAT product (REALLY BRIGHT)...highly recommend....

BTW...as I'm installing the bulb adaptor...I somehow snapped one of the metal flanges that holds the bulb adaptor....arghhh....

Going to have to mess more with it tomorrow...

BL: Be careful removing/installing the bulb...not sure if I just had a weak factory adaptor....or if it was my mongoloid gorilla hand strength....

Can't you source the bulbs individually for a lot less ?

Can't you source the bulbs individually for a lot less ?No doubt. I'm just too lazy to investigate it.

Awesome mods! Looks great!

Hmm, it would be nice to add a glove box light. How would we go about this?

Got this email from them back on Feb 5th:


Hi rand49er,

Thank you for your interest in PrecisionLED products.

The reverse bulbs are currently on backorder. Which is why you don't see the option on the website. We expect inventory within 2 weeks.

We can let you know when we receive them.
