Only one of mine does. It's so dim that you'd have to stick your eyeball up against the dome light lens in order to tell...

Wow, I learned something after l ooking at your install.. I actually pried the lens caps off instead of taking off the whole assembly on my 07. Anyway I have white leds and they are alot brighter than the standard bulb. Now I see you have floor area lamps, how did you do that? Im interested in either blue bulbs for that or white led bulbs for that.

i put blue neon tubes on either side of my footwells.
there just the small 6 inch ones and then wired them into the dome light power, sorry i cant tell you what wire it is but its in the passenger side a pillar. just pull a connector and use a test light with the door open and closed untill you find the right wire, then cut crimp and heatshink and done. if the dome lights is a 2 then this is a 3. i thought the domes to be way easier, like a 1 and the blue leds for the switches and steering wheel is about a 5 if you can soder,
its also easier if you have the IUP steering wheel with the "aluminum" cover.

Has them for 1.95!
Same bulbs? should be the 1st ones on the page I believe, if it loads the same for everyone.
