Just bought a touring tonight. Am really excited about it. Any recommendations for interior lighting upgrades or any suggestions to make the experience a great one.

Congratulations. I've had my 2018 Touring for a year and love it.

Speaking of interior lighting, the Touring has LED footwell lighting but you'd hardly know it, as the under-dash light covers are an opaque white. I and others have drilled a 3/16" hole in the covers to make them brighter. It's easy to do. You can also add your own color filter, e.g. a red candy wrapper. No worry about melting as no heat from LEDs. The LED intensity is controlled by the brightness knob on the dash. Here's link to modification details:

Thanks Marty,
I will definitely give that a try. I ordered some led lights from amazon for the map lights, overhead second row, and cargo lights. Figured I'd start out there on the inside.
