    Hi all, I have the illuminated blue Prius door sills (came on the car when I purchased it) and I think it would be cool to change the foot well lights to blue. The lights the light up the pedals, they're orange in color.

    I was wondering if anyone has found a source for the LED to change its color. I could see simply switching out the LED, but it would be nice if it had the factory mount.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    That’s always a mystery when you order from them. You don’t know until you get an email telling you it shipped. I just hope they dim like the stock ones. Updates to follow…

    Ok, just read the email I received today.... funds are being returned, item on back order. I emailed them back to see when, or if Blue will be in stock again.
    To be continued....

    Thanks so much for the link. That's exactly what I want. When I first checked blue didn't appear available...
    When I checked today, I was able to place an order...

    I hope they actually have them in stock.

    How did you find them...?

    Thanks again,
    Mark

    I received the blue foot well lights. Perfect fit, just like the stock ones. They work and look great!

    Thanks so much for the link. All in, they were $27 shipped to my door for the two of them. :)

    Thanks again,
    Mark

    They appear to be similar in brightness as the orange ones. They dim down when the dome light goes off and stay on dimly when the car is on. This is a picture of them on full brightness (door opened). I have the blue sill plates and I changed out the door bulb w/a blue LED, so you can see that blue reflecting off of the side of the seat in the pic. I like that they use the stock mounts and plug and it's a quick install.

    Anyone ever changed out the LED that illuminates the shifter, that's in the overhead console?

    I did this mod but mine are on all the time and don't dim. They also don't come on when I approach the car like the factory ones did.
