    Default Dash lights question?

    Is it true that the dash lights that stay on all the time(facelift) have leds behind the dash instead of bulbs.

    Not exactly - they're called SMD's (not sure what that stands for) and they're like tiny LEDs. If you're thinking of changing them to blue or white, you'll have to see someone like CrazyLEDs, and its about £300 to upgrade the dash.

    SMD = Surface Mounted Device (or variants thereof)
