I believe that you are talking about the surface mount LED's. The lights inside of the A/C console aren't surface mount, nor are they LED's I believe. Just cheap little light bulbs.
I bought myself a set of ten really bright blue LED's that came attached to wires. That made it really easy to splice them into my cig lighter, and stuff them into the console.
The only bad thing about LED's is that the light doesn't really disperse through the side of the bulb the way it would with a light bulb. It just tends to go through the top of the bulb. Don't get me wrong though, they are bright as hell, and you can't look directly into them without burning your retnas, but you pretty much have to put at least 5 of them into the console, and aim them all into different directions. Even with that done, there are a few patches of darkness, and the whole console just doesn't look right.
That's why I'm going to take them out and replace it with one or two blue bendable neon sticks that you can cut to fit inside of the console. Actually, now that I think of it, they might be LED sticks, but no bother, either will work fine, the LED's just tend to be brighter and last longer.
I'll post a link of them if I find them.
