LED Interior Lighting For Your Legacy
 
I posted these over in the announcement section, but I'll post it here too just in case you missed it there. These are Japanese-made LED interior lights to replace the stock incandescent bulbs.. They're not nearly as cheap as the ebay junk, but WAY nicer. Each one is custom-designed for the application. Really, really well thought-out parts. (I was sort of surprised. I mean, it's just a dome lamp, right?) For example, the center lamp housing is curved, but the LED panel has to be flat. So it comes with a sort of flat adhesive precision-cut gasket-decal that adheres it to the housing. Very clever.

Here's the before and after pic:

Both pics were taken with the exact same exposure settings.

There is a center dome light, a rear cargo light for wagon people, and a dual front map light set.

Also, puddle lights:

Aaaaggh! Is that like some kind of reflex or something?

"Group buy?"

I've posted this before, but I'm not a big "group buy" kind of guy. Some reasons...(copied from another post of mine)

- Group buys are quite a bit of work to administer.
- From experience, if 40 people say they're interested, in the end, two will actually pay.
- The group buy people always want full normal customer service (and who wouldn't?), despite ordering through a group buy, so it ends up costing us the same as a normal sale.
- Group buys always take longer than they're supposed to, and the members get annoyed.
- I'd like people to order when they want the item, rather than wait for a group buy.

We pride ourselves on our service level, and the group buy thing just doesn't seem consistent with our standards of customer service and prompt order-handling.

Where do you "affix the LED panel with included adhesive strips" to? Can you take pics of the actual item?

It goes behind the lens of whatever lamp fixture you're talking about.

This is what you get for the center dome lamp on the Legacy:

I like them!:)

Dan, will the LED's dim when the doors close and have the "opera light" effect a few seconds later like the OEM lighting?

I didn't expect them to, but they still dim out like the factory lights.
