Map Light LEDs

Anyone replace their map light lights with some LEDs? Just wanted to know if they strobe cause all of the other LEDs that I've bought for other parts of the car have. It would be super annoying with the interior lights though.

damn that looks good. How did you get the rear dome lights out? I've tried pulling them out and they won't budge. I had no problem with the front dome lights though.

I replaced mine on my OG 9-3, they dont strobe,a nd dimming works great. I hunted out super bright ones, it looks fantastic when I open my car, even with my tints. I'll take pics later if u want.
