I took a different approach to getting more light to my actual cabin. Although the lighting in your pictures looks clean, the look of the Angel Eye ring just sitting there makes me feel like its a little tacky - no offense though; just my opinion. I just purchased some cheap LEDs that are direct replacement, and I also installed hidden white CCFL tubes for each footwell in the entire car [making a total of 4] - so it kind of illuminates the entire floor. The CCFLs are additional lighting if required and are directly controlled by a switch in my driver glove box, seen here:

If they'd fit, on the bottom of the door. But they might be too thick I think.
