Default LED Interior light conversion

Over the past few months I've seen a few posts & done a search but haven't found any definite answers. I would like to convert all the interior bulbs on my 2013 Q7 to LED. Couple Questions.....

1 - Who is the best source for quality bulbs - no error messages or staying on dimly.
2.- How difficult is the installation? I have the correct plastic tools - any detailed instructions or pictures?

Thanks for your very helpful first post on this forum. Perhaps you might want to re-read my first sentence.

You know perhaps if you were more specific, you wouldn't have gotten that reply. Ha ha ha. I did all my conversions without a problem with just research on here. I don't know why it took you months when it took me a day of research. Maybe my reading skills are better. I am edumacated. Ha ha

I had a great experience with tunerdomes.com. LEDs are flawless coming up on 2 years later. Customer support was excellent. No error codes.

I think ECS is a sponser here and I used their kit in my RS4 and they worked great. and also had videos on the install.

And perhaps as a new member you might find that snarky, unuseful comments made on our forums to someone asking for help are unwelcome or a smart way to establish credibility. If you don't have something beneficial to offer, perhaps making no post at all would be a more suitable alternative.

Sorry guys - didn't mean to start a flame war - (even though I kind of egged it on a little).....

Thanks much 2010GGMQ7 & Reggie -

I had seen that U-Tube video & it gave me some basics. The link to the 2010 thread was very good & the Tunerdomes look promising. I'm also going to give ECS a call - they don't seem to list full kits on their web site - & I don't trust myself to try ordering individually.

Thanks again - I'm really new to the Audi world having come from 10 years of Cadillacs & this forum has been extremely informative & helpful, whether I've posted a question or quietly followed individual threads of interest to me.

I ordered turnerdomes long ago but could not get the 3rd row dome light to stop flickering. Also the cargo lights would flash and only work half the time. Anyone else have this problem?

So I ended up only use led for exterior and license plate.
