2017 interior lights / Diode Dynamics

I'm an impatient soul. I emailed them yesterday to see if the 2017 BRZ has updated parts or if the 2013-2016 kit they sell will work with my car. I've noticed a lot of vendors haven't completely updated their websites for 2017 MY so I'm hoping it's the latter

Does anyone know for sure?

I will definitely post some before and after pics once I get them @Diode Dynamics. I went with the 6000 color for all of them and for the dome I went with the middle brightness, the SMF6 (94 lumens). I knew that I wanted a bright enough light to reach the back seat so I can see when I need to buckle my son in his car seat, but not so bright it messes with my night vision coming in and out on the regular. We'll see if I made the right pic...

Was thinking the same. It's sort of hard to judge brightness of a dome light, as that's an asinine lumen count..lol.

if the 86 is a sign, it's not a good one. I assume that's a new listing for Diode Dynamics and they don't list any of the interior lights

It will be alright, I'm already committed to the order. And I thought I saw someone else post in DD thread saying they already had some installed on a 2017...

I bought the interior kit and installed into my 2017. No issues.
