I reached out to Corsomotion when they were asking for reviewers for their new Custom LED kit and received the lights late last week. I finally got to install them over the weekend so here are my thoughts on their new kit:
Initial thoughts on quality are very good. The boards themselves feel like they are high quality and are sturdily constructed. All have the new Corsomotion name and state that they are "Made in America" which is nice IMO.
I was curious when first inspecting the dome light in particular as I wasn't 100% sure how well it would fit into the existing space, more on that later. As you can see the board has what appears to be a screw mount right in the center but after pulling off the lens there isn't a spot to use that and the light essentially just sits on the lens cover. This lends itself to not lining up real well and the cover is right at the edge of it's ability to snap back into place with the extra bulk of the board in there. I tried a few times to get the light to center up properly and it always ended up a little skewed. For me it's not a huge deal as the function in this case far outweighs the form but I know that some folks are very particular so this might be a concern. Those same people would likely end up spending more time getting it perfect and Corsomotion has included a picture of it looking right so I know it's possible.
I did take some before and after pix to show the difference. First post-install thought: These things are BRIGHT!
I asked for the pure white 5k kits and the color is spot on. I can see now the true value of having the adjustability option as I think I'm going to have to go back and adjust a little. The pictures I have are all at the high end of the spectrum and they're very bright.
Dome and Map light before:
Startling in the difference of light output. As I said, I will have to play with the adjustability a little but I do like the additional light output that these offer and the color is great. I did run into a little trouble putting the map lights in which is entirely my fault. The thickness of the base on the LEDs is slightly thicker than the bulbs that came out so when I was putting in the passenger side I accidentally pushed one set of the pins up into the ceiling. I didn't notice until that bulb started to flicker and I couldn't understand why. After inspecting I pulled out the map light unit and just pushed the pins back into place and reinstalled. Voila! No more blinking.
Here is a comparison between the map lights showing the LED and basic halogen peanut bulb:
Finally a before and after with the trunk light bulb:
Overall I really like the look and performance of the kit. The 5k color looks very nice and the adjustment screw on the bulbs is almost a must but they have it and so you're coming out ahead. I'm curious if the other dome light fitment is better than on the new custom kit. It seems to flow better with the overall design of the dome light housing but this one does the job and with a little more effort on my end I'm sure could have ended up aligned correctly.
The last aspect that I wanted to comment on was the customer service response from Corsomotion themselves. They had promptly responded to my IM's through radio-pro.ru and were friendly and helpful. I gave them my contact information on Wednesday and by Friday the kit was at my house. I know that exLEDusa had high quality product but pisspoor customer service as the years went on so the business suffered immensely. Corsomotion seems to have taken the quality product and added prompt and attentive customer service to the model so I think that folks here can buy confidently in the future.
Feel free to ask any questions. I can provide additional photos upon request.
*Edit: Huh, not sure why I'm not able to post the hosted pictures so I attached a few at the bottom. I'll see if I can't get it fixed.
