    I swapped my interior lights out with LEDs but the dome light is still really dim. The map lights are nice and bright but the dome really sucks...any ideas?

    What bulb did you use? I’m returning the one I tried today(pictured)going to try the alternative i saw at the same store. If that doesn’t work I’m buying online.

    Can you elaborate? Was it too blue, or just not bright enough? Or both? Was contemplating ordering these.

    What's the difference in the stage I and stage III kits? Just the intensity, or is the color affected? How does the stage I compare to stock intensity?

    The lumens - stage 1 is bright but stage 3 is VERY bright. It is the preference of what you want in your car. Stage 3 is the most popular due to the large cabin people want more light.

    Let us know what you decide.

    Thanks

    Thanks - the support is highly appreciated it and happy to hear you are enjoying the LEDs.
