    Anyone converted their interior lighting to LED? If so, what’s the current favorite kit to buy and from where?

    Tired of the dim trunk/cargo light and one of my map lights just went out so it’s time!

    Thanks!

    I didn't find a kit. I purchased 2 ZEVO 168 (white) bulbs for the map lights. For the rear dome, both ZEVO DE3175 (white) and Philips DE3175W seemed too long, the Philips seemed worse, but either one will fit with careful effort. I left the Philips in there because the LEDs only face down, 180 degrees of light, and there is no reflector for the 360 degree output of the ZEVO.

    The trunk is an even shorter DE3022 bulb. The whole light assembly turns when you flip the switch and fitting a longer bulb makes the switch stick/hard to flip. I tried a Philips DE3022W bulb and it was too long. I left the original bulb in there.

    moto g(7) power ?

    I did a full conversion two years, ago, These still work perfectly.



    I tried the inexpensive festoon bulbs. None worked as well and perfectly as these.



    Two of them are needed; one for the dome light and one for the one inside the rear hatch.
