Its on both sides. Kinda have to put your shoes way forward in the footwell to see the effect. Pretty useless in my opinion.

I'd be happy with some lighting inside the center console, kinda wondering why there is none.

My 2007 RDX doesn't have this but my 2008 TL did. I loved it! Didn't know it was added to the RDX for 2010!

I have a 2009, itís weird that you donít have one...maybe the light is just out? You have to have your headlight on to turn it on. Itís not that bright it has to be pretty dark out to see it.

All I have are the two ambiant blue lights behind the sunroof switch, I've never seen any in the foot wells.

No footwell lights, I thought you were talking about lights in the arm rest...

I have ambient footwell lighting in my 2012. I swapped out the blue bulbs for red ones, I think I found the part numbers from a TSX thread. However, I would still like to replace the ambient lighting that shines down onto the center console/shifter area.

Thatís awesome that they added that for the 12í I have the 09í without it. I think those are factory led so you wouldnít be able to change them...

MMC must have added it. I like most of the MMC upgrades, myself.


You can swap them. Just need a soldering iron....
