    SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    So, i got all my interior lights swapped out from crappy yellow (stock 3900K incandescent), to sweet 6000K LED. From V-LEDs.com. A GREAT upgrade over stock! Easy as pie too. All you need is a tiny head flathead screwdriver, and a medium torx for the rear seat "light guard", you'll see. Fourteen lights in all.
    Also, WeatherTech front mats installed. Very nice!

    Second also, Murray's installed my grill and fixed my front bumper! And in another week, tint and 3M!

    Floor mats- in the stock lighting - Dark Titanium interior



    Visor vanity lights -6000K colour (shown) is likely to mess with Ladies' makeup colour, recommend 5000K for Pure White light



    Side by side comparo





    Interior lights -pictures show clips and recommended insert points for screwdriver. Centre console lights (first shown) are tricky, use a cloth and driver to "pry" the lights out, careful, or you'll pop the chrome housing out of its clips. (My brother did that, )

    Re: SRXMods! *Very pic heavy*

    Continued because only so many pics allowed...



    Under door lights


    Rear seat lights, these ones are finicky, be careful!





    Cargo area lights



    Front floor comparo



    Here's the Grill! Heavy Mesh, by E&G Classics. (space between grill and fascia is fixed now.)







    A considerable improvement from stock!

    Continued again...

    I also attempted to change the backup lights to LED, but came up cunfuzzled with the new bulbs. Definitely NOT a 921 equivalent!

    2011SRXMo and 2011SRXMo like this.

    Lighting improvement is awesome !! The process looks simple enough with a little patience. Now if you'll just post a V-LED parts list and description for the bulbs you changed you'll be everybody's new best friend.

    I actually did in here, but i should reiterate anyway.

    Here are some crossover numbers. These are just the LED suggested replacement.

    Back Up- 16W -> G4 LED (small diameter)

    DRL- W21/5W -> 7440

    License Plate - W5W -> 194

    Front Signal - WY21W -> 7443 *Unknown if SACK are needed or not* *Blinker Warning resister is likely needed* *Amber/Orange Recommended*

    Rear Signal - W21W -> 7443 *Unknown if SRCK are needed or not* *Blinker Warning resister is likely needed* *Red Recommended*

    Interior (yellow lights) - W5W - 194 *Must remain fairly small in order to fit in holder/bracket* *14 Interior lights are needed to replace all yellow ones*


    Interior (vanity lights) - ?(it's just called vanity light) - LED Replacement *Only ONE is purchased at this price (from VLEDs dot com), FOUR are needed in the SRX*


    Also, headlights in AFL equipped models is D2S bulbs.


    Thanks all!

    Thanks Captain, now I'll get the interior lights ordered and have a little project soon. It's amazing what a visual improvement the blue LED's make.

    Now, if I could just find some good looking 20" replacement wheels..........

    Thanks again

    Cool, thanks for posting. Mind sharing your source for all the replacement lights as well as the Weathertech mats?

    Did you cover up the front lisence plate holes? If so what did you use? I was thinking of something from bumperplugs.com but wasnt sure what other options I would have.
