Do the 2011-2012 gauges (with white bands) have more or different LEDs inside to let more light through?

No they actually have 3 less LEDs

The "more" you see is because the faceplates let more light they the old ones

What LEDs are missing? Curious because there aren't that many to begin with. Do they use a different odometer LCD to let the white light through? The previous years LCDs looked off white due to the reflective silver background.

heres the list on the 05-early 11s

rpms = 2 needles 2 background
speedo = 3 needles 3 background
engine temp = 1 needle 1 background
fuel = 1 needle 1 background

odo = 3 background

*those 2 in bold when you have and automatic there is 1 more led for the background that is connected in series that is directly to the left of the shifter indicators*

now iirc, the 2011-2013s are as follows:

rpms = 1 needles 1 background
speedo = 2 needles 2 background
engine temp = 1 needle 1 background
fuel = 1 needle 1 background

odo = 2 background

they moved the odometer leds a bit to the top on the board and placed them sideways instead of "up and down" with the pads to the top and bottom
and again like in * same thing in bold

i miss counted...they removed 5 leds in total

Is this what you're looking for? 2010 gauges changed to white with red needles. Switches and steering wheel changed to red. I'm leaving the radio, clock, and climate controls orange until I get my Entune unit installed.
