I installed the interior kit, STAGE 2 in my 2017 2.5i Limited. How-to videos helped. Map & dome lights don't need to be any brighter than Stage 2. Stage 1 doesn't seem worth the trouble. I didn't see an option for the cargo light to be stage 3, but it is such a puny light, it needs all the help it can get. I had a little aluminized mylar I taped as a back reflector. The map lights have some directionality, so I pointed them away from each other for better isolation.
The most challenging were the license plate lights. Once you persuade them to slide to the middle and pivot out, slide it back to clear the assembly free.
I'm happy with the results, the brighter, full spectrum lights are really impressive. They draw 1/5th the amps of the incandescents.
