Has anyone installed these:

I would only put the footwells in, but I think they look sweet. I know a lot of people have put regular ones in, but has anybody synced them with their stereo like the video?

Normally they are just activated by sound. I have a glowstick for the trunk lighting. It has a knob to turn on the sensitivity. Nothing additional to wire up.

That's what I read on their site, I just think they're sick and was wondering who has installed them and how awesome they look in 6's.

It would be cool to have footwell lights period. But there is not even stock lights down there on mine. God knows where I would begin. but I imagine it would be a lil more work than a truck one

I like LED footwells that are just basic, none of the Neon Glow stuff...

Get some regular LED strips and use that I did it in my car so when I unlock the doors/ open the door they come on, really nice touch!

I once saw a guy who had a mazda 6 with like a rainbow thing going on under his car it was kind of cool, I put red leds under my doors in my mazda 3, everytime you opened any door the ground glow red it was sweet. But I have not done anything like that to me msp6 yet.

Wow that's sweet, keep us posted on what you do with your 6! I got mine at the end of July and started modding it in October and now I am hooked.

There just basic LED strips like this:

2x48cm white 48-LED Bulb Flexible Car Light Line Strip | eBay


but that's 48 CM for like a trunk, I believe I bought the 5 or 10 cm would have to check. I think the glowing ones are kind of ricey.

What did you wire them in to? :O
I taped into the fuse,my buddy did his on a switch. let me see if I have some pics.

this in my trunk is one 48CM LED strip like the one I posted above, this was just a before shot of my audio setup

Nice, I remember seeing those when I was about to put mine in. I put 2 6" amber LEDs in my trunk I got from V-Leds just this past weekend.

I've added a basic kit to under the dash, as well as in my trunk. The kit is originally $89 but was on sale for $39, here's the link.

Pros: Very simple wiring, comes with a great adapter that can handle up to (I think) 8 tubes, all controlled by a single switch that I mounted under my steering wheel. Very clean lighting, not overpowered, but can easily get bright enough. The switch has a few modes including: All LEDs on, Fade in and Fade out, Sound Activated. The switch also has a 'Pause" button that lets you freeze the LEDs at whichever state they're in, and will save that state for the next time you turn the car on.

Cons: The tubes are HUGE. It's very difficult to find adequate mounting points for even the 12" tubes that I found, let alone the 15" that they have advertised. The dial for the sound activated part of the lights is a little flimsy, and doesn't always respond correctly to my adjustments.

The blue-ish lights are my 194 socket dome lights, "Cool White" frosted bulbs, and the door lights are frosted red 194 bulbs.
