    i have been thinking about changing my led's in my dash to a different color, probably blue because my head unit on my cd player is blue. i was just wondering if anyone had ever done this and if they knew how expensive it was to do and how hard that it is to install. anyone know?

    Lots do it, it's probably about 8 dollars. Go to superbrightleds.com, and use the search button to find the guides on how to take apart the dash to do it.

    Read up in the FAQ before you dive into this. You cant change everything. the gauges are not too hard if you have some soldering ability.

    My first gen, was relatively easy, no special tools, just read everything and don't break any of the mounting tabs and screws.

    As stated above, some lights you can't change. The green ones are the ones I couldn't do.

    i think theres a member on here that will actually do it for you if you arent confident enough to do it and his price was reasonable too.
