Just give me your opinions and also, are they only located above the pedals. I know that I saw some pictures of lights in the cup holders, but will the dealers actually do that for people?

yea the dealer puts them in the cupholders and in the footwells...but alot of people bought the lights seperate and installed the lights themselves...all my the lights in my car cost about 45 bucks...only because i bought aftermarket and installed them myself i put 2 12" cold cathodes in the footwells and 4 leds in the air vents, 7 in the cupholders 3 in the front and 4 in the backs, then 1 in the cubby hole.

They can only void the warranty if the lights you installed cause the problem. But if you install the lights and your transmission goes out then of course they can't void warranty because of the lights. The lights had nothing to do with the orginal problem.

I got the LED lights from the dealership (after I bought the car through a hook up) and I like them. Only complaint is the damn things move so every so offten I have to turn them around.

^^^Oh, thanks for the warranty info, and you could probably hold your lights in place with electrical tape. But i dont know enough about the problem to say for sure. By the way, nice sig.

The dealer installed the amber lights for me free for having to wait 9 days for my car. It's not as flashy and cool as JustWhite there
but the amber goes well with the instrument panel lights which happen to be "amber". BTW, they installed it without my prior knowledge but that was fine with me.


Oh, yeah, the lights in the footwells do hang low and you can see them. I was afrid of kicking them at first but they are actually out of the way.

i just took an led and pulled out the AMBER light from the hole and taped it on top of the cubby hole on the inside of the center console so you cant see it...then i dropped the blue led in there...so yea the inside of my center console lights up when that light is on but u cant see it.
