Cayman LED interior lamp conversion kit

This kit replaces all the interior lights with white LED equivalents. Unlike some of the other LED kits out there, this kit includes the complete fixtures for the lower footwell and glove box lights. That was a good thing, because the tiny mounting tab broke off of the original glove box fixture when I removed it. All the LED lamps fit and work perfectly. Unlike some other LED replacements, I didn't notice any problems with polarity. Some of the fixtures are more difficult to remove than others, but take your time and follow the instructions. White LEDs emit a cooler white-blue light and give the whole interior a more high-tech look. They do fade off just like the incandescent bulbs do. LEDs also run cool; some of those bulbs get very hot and that's never a good thing long-term with plastic fixtures. LEDs last forever and won't lose their brightness, like incandescent bulbs which slowly deposit metal on the inside of the glass envelope. The only minor issue I have is that the dome lights might be a tad too bright, but I just keep the passenger side dome light turned off. I'm very happy with the kit and strongly recommend it.
