Interior LEDs for my new Sonata

They arrived yesterday, but only had time to start installing them this afternoon. I got one vanity LED installed. Below are the before and after pics.

Looking good...! I'm debating to change mine however I don't want it to be really bright. Does it bother you when using it at night?

No, not at all. They are only used when looking at a map which is not very often since I have GPS . And of course the vanity is only used when we are stopped. If you are concerned with hurting your night vision I believe different colors are available such as red and blue

I got them from our illustrious sponsor... Diode Dynamics. I got the stage two interior LEDs for my 2013 Sonata. I had them on my other Sonata and loved them.

No, not at all and Diode dynamics will help you as well. Youtube also has some videos of the installation. Let me know when you are going to do this and I can walk you through it as well. What year and model Sonata do you have?

the covers pretty much just pop off

and the LEDs are plug and play

the hardest part is popping the covers off (which really isn't that hard)

I bought the set of installation tools from Precision LED which are made of a non-conductive material. Perfect for LED installation. However, I purchase my LEDs from Diode Dynamics.
