I replaced my sills on my V6. The wiring harness does have the connectors, and the new units replace the entire scuff plate, not just the metal plates. Installation is simple - just use a broad blade flat screwdriver to carefully prise up the existing units, connect the harness connector (it's taped down to the harness, so break the tape) and press the new sill into place.

There are pictures in the photo gallery from another member.

I couldn't find them either. I have the lit plates but would like to make them brighter. So some pictures of access and what bulbs are used would be great

Thanks

They're not "bulbs" but LED panels. They are as bright as they're going to get...

My bad. The pictures are not in the gallery, but in the thread started by Phil: http://www.genesisowners.com/hyundai...p?t=995&page=2. Go to Phil's first post in the thread (11-14-2008) for pictures.

I love the interior lighting, I don't need to be blinded just prior to driving at night. The door sills are for looks no real need to be bright, but i do agree extier lighting should be all LED or HID.

I'm still loving the door sills and all other LED swaps. I still get a LOT of comments on all of it.

Thanks for the link Wordman

Would have liked to make them a little brighter. But we can't have everything.

The only interior lights that are changes that can be seen when the doors are opened are the stock overhead LEDs and and footwell lights, the door lights face down at the ground and the trunk and glove box are closed. Even with LEDs in the footwells, they are not as bright as the stock LED dome lights, so I'm not sure what there is to blind me. It's just nice to have the interior lights match more closely; not cool LEDs from the top and yellow lights on the ground from the doors and footwells. As for the Genesis plate, it looks very nice lit up at night; but I'd like it just a little less subtle.

That's what's so great about customizing, we can all suite our own tastes.
