Led interior lights. The pictures show the 2 manual lights on, all the together, and the middle on by it self. Sorry for the quality used the front camera of my iPhone.

Yeah man they are. I just need to find an led that fits the housing for the license plate cause the ones they sell at Auto Zone won't fit.

At first, I had an 5-smd led bulb for the license plate and got pulled over for not being bright enough. Paid $27 for three sets of these. Two sets for fogs and the other set, one for the trunk and one for the license plate bulb. Looks awesome IMO.




Very bright and waterproof!

Damn that's bright! I would get them but I'm no wiring technician so I'm looking for something that's basically plug and play

Two wires. Red and white. They are supplied with double sided sticky tape also. Very easy. If you would like I can send you a picture of the wiring.

Nah man it wasn't. Only problem I had was peeling the wire off on the one from the trunk other than that it was easy. I'm only concerned when I wash my car the electrical tape might wear off and get water on the wires though.
