Interesting interior light upgrade

So, I thought I would upgrade my interior halogen bulbs to LED.
I upgraded the rear cargo lamp, the back seat roof lamp, the main interior bulb and the two map lights.
What was interesting was the two plastic covers that go over the main interior lamp area and the back seat roof light.
After taking them off, there was some really nice hardware!
Chrome? What?
Nice white cover on the rear roof lamp? What?
I was very surprised and actually prefer the look, so simply left the covers off.

You can see the new LED bulbs directly now, but I think they bring a neat look to the interior.









Here are pics with the interior lights off, and my camera phone with flash to take the picture.

I like it, nice! One of the reviews said it made things too bright... Can you comment on that?

They are brighter than the stock halogens, but I can't say it's too bright.
