Anyone upgrade the LED lights on the new Model S?

I have a new MS as of mid December 2016 without the premium lighting upgrade. Has anyone done the Abstract Ocean LED light upgrades on one of these cars? Is the wiring still in place for all the other lights like in the older MS's?

I did all the trunk and puddle white lights, along with the four door side reds. Much better brightness, I don't know why Tesla could not use such lights, Especially in the trunk areas.

I got a 4 light kit and replaced the lights at the Truck and Frunk. Really night and day difference.

Now I will get a new set and redo all the lights.

Do you have the premium lighting option?

Agreed. I'm worried about installation on non premium lighting models. Need help from someone that has done it.

Will be doing mine soon. Just ordered the AO lights this past week. Mine (no PUP) had lights in the rear footwells.

I'll be installing the two extra in the trunk. I'm left with two additional that I'm undecided on where to install for now.

I will post back when I get them in.

My friend just took delivery of a 2.0 car and I purchased the full set of lights for his car. I will be doing an install video soon. I put the 13 lights in my refreshed Model S I picked up in June and had zero issues. Both of us have the premium interior with the extra lights though. So it was pretty straight forward.

Thanks Erik

The wires are still there.

I almost didn't do the top one in the trunk as I didn't think it'd make a huge difference, and I was right. It didn't help light up the trunk much.

Where it did help is lighting around the car, it acted as a puddle light for the rear and sides. Included a picture of my unlit garage side to show how much it illuminated.

I also tried a before and after..but after a couple of tries, I gave up on the before. Without the PUP, it's just a giant black picture. So only an after picture:

i had gone with a 4 pack, but after doing it; I'll be buying more for the rest of the car.

.
How tricky was it to get to the drivers side & passenger side trunk wires? Did you just pull back the lining? And cut through the lining/carpet to expose the lights? If you can't tell I am a little nervous so any help would go a long ways :)
