I do not like just putting 2 LED in cupholder so I did this. (I think angel eyes are cooler than just 2 LEDs)
those are intalled today.. I wired them to cig lighter. To wire them, I took off the gear box,
cupholder box and ash tray. It took 2 hrs to finish and I was almost dying in 42 degree celcius,
but I love them!!

do you guys like this!!!!? :)

are they flush mount inset into the plastic, or jus like, layed on top?

Tokyo Drift

it almost mounts perfectly. it's not 100% suitable but 98%.
If you push it down harder, then it fits :)

Original, I'll give you that. But certainly not my cup-holder-of-tea. :)

Although most cups (ice cap, bottles) won't fit inside the rings and not a fan of the idea of having them sit ontop.

But you get all the points for originality and being unique.

water bottles or ice caps just sit on the ring.
and you can see the light brights inside the bottles.
(same as the water bottles with just LEDs)

I thought it would be ricy, but it looks freakin awesome.

you should write a how-to

i think you did a pretty good job, not to my taste, but a nice job nonetheless

would have been better if u cut the plastic and recessed them to have the full depth of the cup holder, and then maybe covered them with a clear plastic top!

Is it safe from moistures coming from the cups??

And I was wondering also what that thing coming out of the lighter is???

lol
interesting look, and would be a great addition to any car with interior lighting effects.
even tho its not my style, its still cool
a couple of questions (some have already been addressed)
- does it interfere with bottles or anything making the holders useless
- does moisture or spilt drinks affect the light / are they at risk of blowing
- is the light from the angel eyes so bright so it bothers the driver?

no. if it does, there's no point with this mod. (losing cupgholder's purpose)

- does moisture or spilt drinks affect the light / are they at risk of blowing
no. it's covered with acrylic circle.

- is the light from the angel eyes so bright so it bothers the driver?
no. I just call it angel eyes. it's not bright as the angel eyes with headlights.
there are only two LEDs for 1 circle.

You can get something similar (not exact, at least the colouring anyway...) here:
http://www.dealextreme.com/search.dx/search.angel%20eyes

Not sure how to install though.

And if you guys were wondering whether Deal Extreme is a 'trustworthy' site, I believe it is from my experience. Bought 4 things from it in the past, and all came in good working order :)
+ it's free shipping!

But again, not exact, and not sure how to install lol

Holy crappp that looks amazing! You guys need to stop coming up with new and original mods for me to copy! :chuckle

I think the best way to do this would be to get a piece of clear plastic cut to the size of the cup holders and stick a ring like this underneath it in the cup holder. That way no moister ever gets through (you could even seal it) and no drinks will ever mess up the lights.

I've been working on something similar to this. But it's going around the side of the cupholder. Going to be somewhat tron like
