    MFD colour change?

    Ive read the "How To" on changing the MFD colour to white on post 51 models, but im interested to know if its possible to change the colour to something else like blue/red/green? My first idea was to cut out the centre section of the orange diffuser and implant whatever colour i wanted in there but the "how To" mentions changing the bulbs for leds to change the colour? Which is of these is the best/easiest?

    LED's are the tried and tested route.
    It's just a case of removing the MFD and changing the bulbs for LED's.

    I've never removed an Astra mfd so can't comment how easy/difficult it is to remove, Corsa ones are very easy. The leds are plug and play, a direct swap for the existing bulbs, very easily changed.
