    Default LEDs - Dash Mod?

    I'm kinda thinking of replacing the standard orange lighting in the clocks, MFD (?) and switches to LEDs....I 'm guessing I'd want to be able to still use the dimming facility too - if possible.

    I have looked for a How To, but probably missed it - anyone able to help?

    Also, what type of bulb is in the main beams please?

    TIA!

    There all SMD's mate, just choose your colour choice and there a straight swap. Crazyledz do kits for the vec C clocks. There are no How 2's but THIS thread will show you what the SMD's look like.

    Thanks Rushy - it was white I was thinking about, and that looks spot-on to me!

    Mine are done in white, and it does not impair vision in the slightest at night. In fact, the odometer is in blue, and if anything it is more eyecatching at night than the dials.

    No mate not at all, I have my GID switched to daylight all the time and my dials on full and they dont distract at all. The Yellow GID did switched to day settings at night but not white.
