Anyone get the interior lighting kit?

I'm interested in getting the interior lightning kit and was wondering if anyone got it yet? Are all areas, driver, front and rear passenger sets, illuminated? Can you change colors?

Interested to see if it's worth the money. My dealer gave me a quote and I always thought was cool to have interior illumination other than the dash lights.

I would run a wire down from the map light to a couple of bulb holders under the dash. Bulbs fade out better than LEDs which is why current dome and map lights won’t get modded. The floor lights could be any colour and fade out too.

It seemed really expensive for what it is as I believe its only on as "welcome lighting". I had a 2010 GTI with ambient footwell light. I'd like to replicate that. I may tap into a console light and run a couple small flexible self-mount LED strips under the passenger and drivers side dash.

How much were you quoted for the lights? There may be cheaper alternatives out there.

The interior lighting kit retails for $295 USD. That is a lot for some welcome lights that are only used briefly.

What on earth is going on with you guys? You get the car for half what we pay then your accessories are horrendously expensive. We pay the equivalent of about $55 for that kit.

If you want me to fill my suitcase, just say!

Mazda has to make their money somewhere!

FWIW, I'd never pay that price.

Just want to let you guys know I have it on mine. I will see it tonight but the lights are white. I hope I can change them. Also I think it's just the driver and passenger footwell. IMO I just got robbed.

That does not seem to be right. I have ordered the welcome illumination kit and I expect the lighting to be blue as per the marketing material for the product. I really can't see the point in having white lights down there.
