factory cup holder lights

Can someone supply a pic of the factory cup holder lights, b/c the one they installed in
my car is sh**ty as F. It's just one tiny little light sticking out the side of the holder
by about a cm.. Is that right or is the dealer trying to rip me?

It should be one single LED per cup holder with a diffuser. There should also be a button installed on the inner lip of the console wall that you can use to change the color from teal, bright teal, red, bright red, off and show mode. As for the install, its only as good as the tech that installed it.

I've got the light strips in the doors, but not the dash. It looks great! Where did you get it?

It's a mod. There are a few DIYs on how to do this.

Here's the pics off the chevypartsplus.com site. For the price they look rather pathetic.
