Today LEDs, fibre optics and neon lights are making the interiors of cars brighter, adding to practicality and also allowing car owners to show off their individual tastes. 

Neon lights

Neon lights are glass tubes or bulbs that contain a combination of neon and other gases that emit an even, bright glow. Neon tubes are made of high strength glass tubes which can be installed under the dash, speakers and other spaces in the car. Only issues with neon lights are that its not flexible and intricate designs needs special care.

LED lights


Popular because they are cheap and can be used in a variety of ways, LED lights are available as tubes, strips and wires. 

LED light strips can be installed under the dashboard, underneath seats, or in foot wells. You can also find flexible tubes or strips of LED lights, which can be installed along the trim for a unique lighting effect. Not only are LED accent lights easy to install, they’re inexpensive and come in a variety of colours. You can light up virtually the whole interior of your car in any colour without spending a fortune.


In addition to giving off more light, LED bulbs also produce a whiter light than halogen. This allows you to see more clearly, but be careful when turning them on at night. Map lights and dome lights can blind you and other drivers if they’re too bright. If you need to turn these on, be sure to keep your eyes on the road. Do not leave your interior lights on continuously whilst driving. Although customizing your car with interior lighting accents makes your car stand out, it’s not always a good idea. Certain interior lights are unsafe and are therefore not road legal.
