Nice review, I have many of HPB's products on my cars as well. They are bright, consistant in color and have never had an issue with anything.

Thank you for all the kind comments. This review is finally done. My future in modding is sadly much more in the unknown than it was just a few days ago [EDIT: yeah it's pretty hosed at the moment...] Hopefully I will be able to complete some of the mods I have listed below, but I assure you, all of them will be in this formal fashion. This review is now officially complete, thanks for reading!

God the map lights are such a pain to install! Can't get the console/rear footwell lights to properly work too.

Anyone got any tips?

Did you try removing the black shrouding on the map light for easier access?

No--I still haven't gotten around to that. I'll try to make that happen over the next week or so...

Yeah, it's just hard getting it to fit since it's so tight!

Got all of them in after awhile but I may have pushed too hard for one of them and it doesn't turn on with new LED or the old bulb..did I break something?

You may have. Take a picture, perhaps you bent the connections and it's a quick fix.

Just installed the Cree 20watt LED angel eye bulbs from HPB and they are awesome! Look as bright as the New LCI AE's.

Depending on what you broke it might be a quick fix and marginally inexpensive. Browse around on an OEM Dealer parts store and see if there is a replacement part you can buy.
