So just got through installing these blue LED cupholder rings. They match up great with all the other blue LED accents. Had to remove console to wire them in, but was not too difficult as there is a 12v source right there.

Very nice. Were those from eBay? Did you wire them to a 12v source that’s always on when the vehicle is on, or one that’s tied into the vehicles lights so that they only come on when your headlights are on? I personally would tie them into a headlight source which should also be right in there.

I wired them to "always on" when running. Figured the blue around the speedo and tach is always there ,so this would match up. I considered wiring a switch inside the console, but decided it wasn't really necessary.

Thanks for the link. I may just have to order a pair for the Pac and maybe even ones with white LED for my Cadillac.
Question, does the brightness level seem good? What I wouldn’t want is them to be over powering bright at night.
If I get them I may wire to one of the interior lights that dims with the dash so that way if I dim the dash lights the cup holder lights will as well. Or they can be tapped into the ambient light dimmer as well. Plenty of options as far as that goes, but either way I think I would want them to dim with the gauge lights.

Thanks for any additional info.

Am I the only one not seeing a 3.5” disc size option? I’m showing 3 1/4” as the largest. ?!?

So just to be sure, these are wired in, and the cups would sit on top of the light disc? How does this effect the stability of cups in the cup holder?? Do the wiggle or move around more once the disc is in???

Very cool!! I’ve always thought there needs to be just a little more ambient lighting in there at night. These seem like a great addition. Thanks OP.
I’m also considering adding leds under the dash and under the front seats to light the second row passenger floor space.

I don’t have these but I don’t see how they would cause stability issues. They are super thin, plus cups are supported on the sides anyway.
Yes they are wired in and you gotta tap into a source of your choice.

They don't make any difference, the cup is held firmly anyway.

Agreed, I will be adding some more blue LED accents up front soon.

They are about 3-4mm thick, but don't make any difference in the effectiveness of the holder.

I am also thinking about adding accent lighting to the seating area, my Focus has a nice interior accent light that makes it really "welcoming" at night... has anyone looked into something like that? I think it will go great with such cupholder mod.
