Upgrade overhead lights to led

Hi guys!

I upgraded all interior lights to leds, except the over head ones (center console) , specifically the ones located near the glass that are turned on with the button on the console. I was scared to break something. Any help on how to upgrade those?

Attached some of the pics of the HIDs upgrade (CAN-BUS compliant)... still waiting for my bezels... so far so good

Re: Upgrade overhead lights to led

Hi guys... I used the interior trim removal "guide" from here ...just to find out that those lights are like embedded in a mini board.

Removing the overhead console was difficult since you need to pull very hard... for the moment I will leave them there.

You mean because of the HIDs?

....its the camera (phone camera). They are 35w 6000k.

Hope you live near me so I can show you how beautiful those HIDs and LEDs look

...except those just two damn overhead lights

Ohhh boy, those LEDs bellow dashboard make the stainless pedals look terrific!!

Re: Upgrade overhead lights to led

Hi guys... those are from a local store (a friend). Unfortunately the guy doesn't have an online store, only a marketing web page.

As far as I know, CAN-BUS is what is important for the GC. Installation was very easy... literally plug-n-play... we spend around 1 hr both headlights.
