Probably comes in handy when trying to read at night, or develop photos in your car.

Red is more popular than some might think, on our end the red footwells are our #1 seller and many ask for red interior. For the red trunk strip we offer, not many go that route because they want bright white but we feel it looks great and offers enough light and having that bright red trunk really pops, everyone will see and look when you open that trunk.

Tactical lighting! Reminds me a lot of the interior light on my friend's deuce-and-a-half.

For sure, red is the most popular "color" LED I've seen. I've got to say they're working out quite well. They're really soft on the eyes too which is nice.

Red has night vision properties, some people who contact us are a bit more sensitive to the white light and red works perfect for them, some choose to only install 1 red dome LED an leave the other one white, it is a good idea and it looks unique. We call the 1 red / 1 white front dome LED combo the terminator mod around the warehouse, but it probably won't catch on and become the mainstream name.

I've wanted red footwell lights since buying my GTI back in 11, but thought it might come out a bit excessive...

On the plus side, you can probably develop photos in there now.
