    yeah, they're LEDs and they can be swapped out. I've seen them changed to white and they look much better.

    Same here. If I changed anything it would be the shifter lights only, and it would be to white. Just because the red LEDs in my shifter light are not very bright and seem to glow more than they do light up.

    I swapped out a friends motorcycle guages and it can help, but it can be distracting- I'm used to military shipboard communication centers- dark as hell. So too much light when I'm driving bugs me.

    I might go all red at some point...cause the swap isn't hard once you get the dash apart.
