Bright

Is there a way to tone them down, make them more subtle? I would love to get a set but want them to be a little more dim instead of blinding you as you or your passenger get into the car.

Not that bright

They are really not that bright not blinding at all just how it looks in the pics. Trust me not that bright to be blinding!

They look brighter in the pics than what they really are.

You did a nice job. First time I've seen them in the back.... good idea.

^^^^^ awesome, so how'd you do it.

This is my approach/theory on how to do it. Not sure if it will work though. Thoughts/input?

Take two of the LED light strips from AAC, as these do not need a inverter/diode for installation. Take off the side paneling of the center console area. (You need to have previously installed footwell lighting to do this). Find the positive wire that runs to the LED strip on each side. Take a T-tap connector and plug in the positive wire of your new LED strip. Run the wire inside of the center console and then right under the seat. There are grounds all over the center console so take your pick.
