Upgraded entire interior to LEDs (Pic HEAVY)

So, I have done this to all of my previous cars, and have no idea what has taken me so long to do it to the Accord...but it's finally done.

I chose to go with the highest quality bulbs from VLEDs - total with shipping for 7x bulbs was around $80. They are extremely bright. Photos taken in my blacked out garage to display their true capacity

Map lights + Dome light = 3x 3175 6W 5,000K
Trunk, Glove box and Puddle lights = 4x 194 6W 5,000K





Before & Afters:


Puddle lights: (btw the door panel does NOT have to come off!)
(Incandescent)

(LED)

(Incandescent)

(LED)

(Soley just the Passenger puddle light with the door in the closed position. No other lights on or around.)

(Soley just the Driver puddle light with the door in the open position. No other lights on or around.)




Glovebox:
(Incandescent)

(LED)





Trunk:
(Incandescent)

(LED)



Map Lights:
LED vs. Incandescent


The LEDs fully go out when not in use (sign of a good quality LED bulb. Cheaper ones will still draw current and remain dimly lit)


(Soley the map lights. No other lights on or around)



Dome Light:

(Soley the dome light. No other lights on or around)






Everything:

One thing that I did notice though, is that I'm not happy with the outcome of the forward-only facing 194's in the glovebox and trunk cargo areas as their illumination of the areas are limited. I will be ordering the 360˚ 194 bulbs once VLEDs gets them back in stock at the end of March


EDIT 02/07: Bulbs are now ordered and paid for They should ship as soon as they are in stock

UPDATE 02/09: Just got an e-mail from VLEDs that my bulbs just shipped out... They must not have been on back order after all! No complaints here! hehe

daaaamn yea, i wouldn't mind doing the glovebox/trunk, everything else is an overkill imo. I hated how bright the led dome/maps would be in my integra when i would open the door.

To fix the brightness issue you can do two options:
A) Choose a high-quality LED bulb with not as many lumens as I went with
B) Disable the dome light upon door opening so only the map lights come on

But one scenario where I do love how bright they are is for my 92 y/o grandmother who I frequently take home after family dinners / get-togethers. I always have the door opened for her way before she reaches the car, so the puddle lights help her navigate / see the foreground and the interior helps her see getting in and buckling up
