I did the same exact to my 2000 ES and the only ones that I havent changed or found the right bulb to fit is the visor lights, so if you did those what size LEDS to you use?

Do the LEDs still fade out when they go off? I like how the factory incandescents fade to black when you put the key in the ignition.

Yeah I like that dimming effect too. Shouldn't be a problem. LEDs dim when the current is lowered just like incandescent bulbs do. It's CFLs (compact flourescent lights) that have a problem with dimming. They are usually either full on or full off. No in between.

I have purchased from warden jp before, sometimes the 'white' leds vary in color, some have a violet tint to them.
Looks great, especially in a black interior.

the only thing i am missing with my LED's are:

glove compartment, i bought from superbright led's but it was tooo wide, then the vanity mirrors, the other problem i had is the dome light by the sun roof controls and that one was a tint of blue more than the other lights, but non-the-less, lovely application

Are you 100% positive its 41mm cause they look smaller than 41mm?

This is a great thread 01LEXPL, I'm thinking about doing this this summer now that I've seen how good they look in our ES's and I'll definitely come back here to reference what you did. Although perhaps it looks best on your black leather vs. my grey. Nonetheless, great job!
