Other option is to find a way through the firewall and connect to the interior fuse box.

Question - Will these lights interfere with the radio?

I had some led lights in the past that were messing with the FM radio stations.

I wouldn’t hesitate drilling a small hole in the fuse box cover. You can always just seal the hole with silicone if you’re really worried about it. I ordered the DIY kit and I’m going to attempt to wire it through the firewall to an interior switch. I got one of these:

Easier for sure - but to me, the remote is a ghetto workaround for something that’s (hopefully) not that hard to do the right way. Like do you really want to me messing around with a remote or iPhone app every time you get in the car?

But we’ll see next week when I get the lights... If it works, I’ll try to post a quick tutorial.

The remote is only necessary to change lighting modes, no app involved. If you have it set to your liking, it will automatically turn on when the car is started/in Ready.

Nice, ya I saw those but decided to go with Factor4 ones that replace the slim plastic pieces just below the bonnet with ones that have the LEDs in them. I'll post pic once I install them.

I want this so bad.
How did you do the hole on the fuse box?

I also have a white RAV4 and I’m debating if I should go white or yellow lights
Mine is coming TODAY !!

My Plan is to drill a hole in the fuse box top cover, cut a slit in in and use a rubber grommet. ( If I want to revert back to stock, I'm sure the fuse box top cover is cheap to replace )
