Two things:

1. Are you aware that VW makes an illuminated overhead console with center console illuminating LEDs (W-8 style) for non-sunroof models. In addition to the LEDs that you currently have, VW also illuminates the map light buttons and dome light switch. (Except VW uses red LEDs which are proven to be gentler on the eyes at night due to its frequency). You can find this OEM W-8 overhead console for non-sunroof models at http://www.evolutionsports.com/ including the panel and detailed, color photograph instructions on how to install. Or you can do what I did; I bought my W-8 console from evolutionsports.com and took it to my local VW dealership. They happily installed it for me in about 30 minutes for $25. Not bad if you aren't automotively handy!

2. Check out the website http://homepage.ntlworld.com/dgace/w8_light_leds.htm

Notice how his LEDs SUPPLEMENT, but do not REPLACE the incandescent light bulbs. His incandescent light bulbs function normally when a door is opened or when switched on, however, the LEDs that he uses turn on when the headlight switch is turned on. Would't that also look awesome in the rear seat overhead lights? I would love to do this mod but I want to find out as much information as I can before I proceed such as the correct frequency to match the W-8 console LEDs, an appropriate intensity, and exactly how to wire through the headliner.

Nice mod nonetheless!!! :bow:
