    does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for a better lighting source for the trunk?

    i am also interested in lighting for the frunk too, but unsure if it is as needed as the trunk.

    also, if this is easy enough for me to install then great, but if it is more complicated than normal, a recommendation for a place in the sf bay area that will install it would be great too!

    thanks!!

    I would recommend the lighting upgrades from Abstract Ocean:

    Ultra-Bright LED Interior Lights

    Discussed extensively here on TMC all the way from concept to prototypes to end-user shipments:

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    Mostly plug-and-play depending on your car's configuration and whether you want to exercise the option to add certain lights that weren't originally present on your car. As for whether it's easy, my 10-year-old son and I had never done any modifications before and we found these (with one exception) a breeze to do.

    No connection with AO except as a very satisfied customer.

    Several YouTube videos on installation also by Erik on his Daerik channel. He installed them on both his cars. Very easy to DIY.
