leds come in almost any color you want.. couldn't you just switch them up?

i'd love to change the gauge color. i saw someone on NAM or MINI2 had blue lights in their gauges.

How do you get to the LED's in the gauges? I'd love to turn them blue and then do blue LED's from autolumination all around. I like orange but blue would be slick.

This is not for the faint of heart by any means! You have to unsolder, and resolder TONS of LEDS....but it is possible.

A buddy of mine from my local club has a write up...check it . I would do it in a heart beat if i didnt love the orange so much.

HOLY SHIT!!! All that and it still doesn't get rid of all the orange. OK So I now love orange and my orange mods and will live with it. Really the only thing in my car that's not orange now is my amp that's under the seat. It's blue.

Some pics of my interior. I apologize for the blurriness. Neither of our cameras like to take pics without a flash.

actually that is just a kit for the bulbs...it still requires you to solder them in. Although they do offer to do it for you, but it will probably cost way more...They say you dont need to be a pro though
