Anyone installed Hyper whites in the reading and floor lamps? Just looking to get the install procedures, and light numbers.

Thank you

it'd be great if you could give me some pointers for the interior install, as well as some stock #'s if you remember them

what stock #'s you mean. The lighting is pretty simple for the interior just use a flat head screw driver to pry open the dome lights. Tell me what you need exactly.

Just a screwdriver to pry off the clear portion of the dome lights? And another thing.. any idea of what the stock # is for the reverse lights? And was the install tough, I heard the housing is a bitch to get out. Any help would be great BlackGTI06..
thanks

The only pain is getting the clear plastic pieces off the dome. Becareful not to crack the plastic. The reverse lights im not sure but i'll get back to you on that. Overall the installtion was not tough. Rating 1 being the easyest and 10 the hardest i'd give it a 3

footwell lights on during driving?

You can also keep the floor lamps on while you drive via vagcom.
Really? :confused:

I own a VAG-COM and have manipulated many of the settings
in the Vehicle Electrical System Controller J519,
but I have not tripped across that one.
I have found the long coding setting that activates / de-activates the footwell light circuit.

Vehicle Electrical System Controller J519 byte 00 - bit 02


Found the setting for the footwell lights intensity in adaptation



But equivalents for both those settings are accessible in the full MFD on US mk5 GTIs.



xcrazydx, care to share any detail on the setting(s) that allow(s)
keeping footwell lights on full time in a US mk5 GTI? ???

I installed blacklights in all of my interior lights, took about an hour or two, and careful prying with a thin, flat screwdriver covered in tape to protect the plastic. I bought the bulbs from www.superbrightleds.com. They have the 12v lights for cars.

I think he means part #'s, rather than stock #'s

Autolumination.com is my favorite. You can also e-mail them with what you are looking for and she'll usually reply quickly and give you all of the numbers you need. High quality LED's too.
