LEDs are very compact and require little space for installation. Another advantage is that they give off little heat and work equally well at all temperatures. They are very economical and, for example, ideal for installation in console slits or door slats. Further advantages are that LEDs react very fast and shine with full brightness. You reproduce the colors very realistically and hardly flicker.

Practical are retrofittable ambient lighting, which can be networked with your smartphone. The providers offer the retrofit kit often a free app that you can download to your smartphone or on a tablet. With such an app, you can, for example, control the light color, the brightness and the order when multiple colors are available.

do not make a spaceship out of your car

Before you buy an ambient lighting for retrofitting, you should first make sure that this light source is also allowed according to the road traffic regulations. Advantageous for you: The legislator does not specify clear rules for interior lighting in the interior. However, it is in the Highway Code that the light may not penetrate to the outside and radiate so that it dazzles other road users or changed their own signal lights. It is also important that you yourself are not blinded or distracted by the ambient lighting. This also applies to a possible retrofit ambient lighting in the footwell. Tip: If you install ambient lighting on the entrances or on the ceiling, it makes sense to provide them with a door sensor or connect them directly to the factory interior lighting. In this way, the LEDs can not radiate outward while driving. Make sure that the lights and the reading lamps are not too bright. Otherwise you can equip them individually and according to your taste. But not OUTSIDE!
