Default footwell /glove compartment lights

The illumination from the footwell and glove compartment lights are very inadequate for their intended purpose. Are their any plug in replacement led's available?

I removed the orange caps off of the footwell LED's and they are much brighter!

For owners with the Rear Seat Upgrade package with the Cool Box the light inside is also an LED, remove the orange cap like on the foot-well lights and you will be set.

I did LED on my Porsche 997 and Cayenne, it really made the interior look better. If it looks good on one of my cars it usually looks good on the others. ( I trust you can figure that one out) randy
Tee thanks for the tip , I will try it before going completely LED.
I have done my 07 LS my 08 LS is next...

Tee, what did you do about the lights that are located under the rear seat backs? I took a quick look and those appear to have the caps but I was not sure about how to remove the light housing.

The foot-well halogen bulbs can be replaced with T-10 LED bulbs in 2013 LS460. Same applied with two trunk lights. The doors courtesy lights in my case came with already LEDs. However I was not able to change the front map lights (main) and rear dome lights to LEDs. The spot lights on both ends of the dome light panels are already LEDs in my case. The main dome lights have the "dynamic lighting" property meaning ramping up and down voltage. When i changed them to LED, the residual power in LEDs keep them ON even after closing the doors. So I had to give-up the modification. has anyone could change the dome lights to LED that has dynamic lighting capability? Just curious.

I used needle nose pliers to pulled the orange caps off or should i say peel them off around the LED bulb. This would also apply to the Cool Box LED as well.
