    Kept these from the Forte install thinking I'd put them in whatever new car I got. Since I got a Sonata Sport 2.0T Limited, it came with LEDs and too late for me to return them to Amazon. Local DFW pick up / meet up. $25 for the 4.

    Just curious if anybody has replaced their stock lighting with LED bulbs? I have seen several other car owners (mainly Mazda) replace their entire inside of the car for about 30$.

Since you are going to be in there, why not convert them to LED's and don't worry about replacing them ever again? I put this...
