Yeah, the OEM footwell lighting is weak. In fact, I have upgraded ALL
the interior lighting to blue lighting via LED SMDs (pics/vid will be forthcoming), and even though a 5 SMD chip 194 wedge was used in each footwell -- the plastic dome housing keeps the light too modest IMO.
That is one of the main reasons I went with the LEDGLOW Blue Expandable SMD LED Interior Lights. The six 12" LED SMD light strips in the kit daisy-chain together with the provided mini-cables (two 9.5 ft and four 5 ft cables in the six piece kit).
I installed 2 strips in each of the two front footwells -- front of the footwell, and under the front of the front seat. The two remaining strips were zip-tied under the back of the front seats to light the back seat footwells. The wires were all tucked away under the plastic molding for a clean look.
As far as powering goes, they have an expandable circuit (via fuse input), but our fuse box is under the hood, so that was a no-go. Though I could have certainly tapped into the battery under the driver's seat for a clean install, I went with the cigarette lighter adapter option. Specifically, I used the plug in the center console (to have immediate control of any power consumption). The right side of the center console has a small opening so wires can go through with the top secured. There are two wires that travel out of the ceter console down under the front pax seat and these are the only exposed wires with the whole set up -- still very clean. I use the remote fob to run the lights.
With a modest discount code, I got the six piece kit, cigarette lighter adapter, and shipping for under $60 bucks. A great mod for the cost.
