      Do you have to modify the passenger's side hatch side trim piece to fit the light? I was in my hatch last night and confirmed a suspicion that there is currently only one light on the driver's side panel. I may require a super special combo number 3 with only one hatch light...

      To my knowledge there is some trimming involved.

      yeah, you gotta take some parts off and cut some holes in the grille on the right side to get dual trunk LEDs or lights in general

      Si. I believe you only cut like 8 grille slats and good to go.

      Cutting the grill is simple. Takes all 2 min max. All you need is a wirecutter/snipper or a xacto knife. Wire cutter is much faster.

      Sorry the problem is that you cannot use one LED on 06 car because it will turn off after 5-10 seconds. I believe car will think the bulb is out so it turns it off.

      Nice. I dig your resourcefulness on the work-around.

      I'm hoping I can snap some cool pictures once my hatch is complete with these lights installed. I'm thinking about going to 4-door puddle lights though. I feel like I should for the sake of symmetry.

      Can trunk light be installed somewhere else? Cuz in the orig position, when I lift the spare tire section and have to dig out all the knick knacks required to change a tire, the light doesn't shine in all the places, thus I would end up digging for things in the dark. If it could be stretched to above where the tail lights are, it would be more useful. Otherwise, I will go back to using flashlight for such purpose.

      aaaaand...i lied. Put me down for the dual trunk set up as well. I read your post later in the thread regarding the single led and the light going out after a few seconds and that def happens in my car and drives me nuts. I will fork over the additional funds for not just a solution, but an upgrade as well.



      you and krazyboi are just too convincing

      It is super easy to snip out the little vent tabs on the right side of the trunk and no-one will ever notice that you did it unless you point it out. The hardest part was deciding exactly where to locate it and stressing over not cutting out one too many tabs.

      Will you ship to Australia?
      If so, how much for shipping of just the trunk lighting cable?

      Thanks!

      Should I just update pricing for everyone to be Priority? I'm sure people won't mind shelling out the extra $2.
