Just wondering if they're legal or not, I just installed mine and they're pretty bright and it kinda reflects off my body and face lol

You should be fine. I have some RGB LED's that shine on my gauges and from time to time I will turn them on and make them shine in a slow pattern and the whole inside of my car gets lit up and I have never been questioned. As long at the light itself cannot be seen outside of the car and you are not distracting other drivers, it should be fine. Just be careful about it.

To wire a dimmer, do you just connect one side to the leds and then the other to my switch to led positive? and no negative?

"any light inside a vehicle that does not come from the dealer that is on when driving is illegal"

That quote is from what a **** Kenosha, WI cop told me.

I don't believe him, but that's what he said.. this is also the guy who told me that a Wisconsin state statute doesn't apply in the City of kenosha (347.07 legal underglow) and this is the guy who beats his wife.. =/

yeah.....

No, you most certainly need negative. As you can see from the "Technical Info" tab:

If you have the relay that complicates everything wiring in the dimmer

I have blue in my truck and run them all the time...it reflects and as long as you cannot see the light source you will be fine.

I also have a programmer in my truck that can change any color, not illegal and you can see the light source...same thing with navigation units.

As long as you are not glowing like an Xmas tree down the road you should be fine.

and this is coming from a cop....me ;)
