it took me a while to realize how dark it is inside the car at night.
& i was thinking about getting red lights to match the paint of my car.
but i dont know if "red" is gonna be bright enough inside.
i know blue is pretty bright cause i seen a gti with them. but red?

I'm with ya' on this one. I have the Randode cold cathode red interior lights but they are at the foot level. I wanted some red light at the upper level also, so I was thinking of some LEDs in the vents and maybe, just maybe, the OS handles...:D

Yeah, it especially needs them in the back for getting groceries at night.

I've got red cathodes under my dash and under my seats. Along with 2 red led's in each of the OS handles, and I personally think it's a nice touch. It's bright enough for me, and I've yet to be pulled over by a cop for it, which is what I was definately afraid of. The only thing I'm kicking myself for not doing, is adding some sort of light in the trunk, which is probably next.

I wish I had pictures of this, but unfortunately, my camera does not capture the red light well at all, and the pictures look awful.

I have the Varad LEDs in my vents. They're very nice, and super bright.

I recommend anything from Varad, I've never heard bad about them, or their customer service.

I took out my factory dome light put a 10" drop down their. Took the dome light put it up between the driver and passenger seat. Got another one from ebay not a exact match still looking for that, but I put that one in the very back hooked. Both lights are hooked together so they both fade out, come on when the door is open etc. Worked out great just had to do a lil cuttin on the headliner but well worth it. Also have LED's under seats, grab handles, and the lower shift boot.

Alright here are the pictures i promised these are all pictures of the left inner vent. i actually just drilled a hole in the vents with a dremil (i dont know how to spell it sorry) about the size of the led im using so depending on what your using please change accordingly. what i had to do was basicly take of the center console and remove the cd player to get to the vent... after that it was really easy to just drill a hole and fit the led part-way threw it. i then ran the wire down around the cd player around where the center console fits and behind the little cubbyhole and fed it threw and behind as you can see in the 4th picture. oh and im using the led kit that i got from Scionpro. it has like 7 different colors and 4 different patterns including a sound interface pattern. if you have anymore questions please let me know!!
