Default 2008 Ambient Lightning (Pics)

A lot of people wanted to see what it looked like, since you can't really see it at the dealerships in the daytime. These pics show it only in the front seats and cup holder but it has them in the back seats too.

Cool ... I was just at AutoZone and they have quite a few different LED kits that mount up under the dash for the same effect. Some plug into the power plug and some are hard wired into the car so they are controlled by the interior lights. Only problem is every kit I saw was blue ...

Ford is now selling an accessory kit to retrofit ambient lighting that can switch colors ... but if you want the cup holder rings you'd have to buy a new console. the retrofit kit only includes a single LED in each cupholder.

Thats what I thought of the first time I saw this. I have a friend who has these in his Eclipse just for kicks, and it doesn't look too different from whats in the 08 stang. I like the idea, I love the ambient lights that are in some Mercedes. Hopefully Ford will sharpen it up a little, to make it look a little more classy and less of a novelty. What colors are available in the factory system?

It has a button next to the cup holder to switch it and it has white, orange/yellowish, light blue, pink, dark blue, red, and green. I think that is all of them.

I like the system that comes factory because each light section is only a single little dot that is almost flush with the car that you can barely see but they emit a lot of light.. instead of the ghetto looking two foot long mountable crap you can buy at the store.

I think some ambient lighting as long as it was white, would look really classy in the interior.

Does anyone know where to get this kit?
