    Default Dash Illumination change.

    Has anybody attempted to change the colour of the dash illumination in a Vectra C?

    I was hoping to go for blue lighting but i belive it's not as easy as it was with the vectra B?

    nope, no-where as easy.. i don't think anyone on here has done it yet... they're not 'bulbs' or LED's but SMD's...so much harder to do.

    C'mon folks.. prove me wrong!!....show us yer dash....

    NO, changing the colour will have NOTHING what so ever to do with tech2 !!!
    The Vec C does indeed have SMD's (surface mount devise), these are still LED's mounted on a PCB but they are NOT your standard type LED's, and manually working with SMD's is not particularly the easiest of things to attempt.
