    Orange MFD Diffuser (trip computer version)

    I know this has been covered a few times, but does anyone know if the trip computers also had an orange diffuser or was it just the normal MFD's?

    2001 onwards had orange filters behind MFD, dials and Odo (apparently).

    There doesn't appear to be an exact date, but anything around 2001 onwards, it's a case of take it out and have a look (10 min job).

    Yeah...later models also had an orange diffuser in the mileage display too.

    Have a look here for a little of an insight:

    cheers george, not too fussed about the milage display, but as a bulb has gone on the actual speedo might as well convert them to blue and the heater controls as well.

    Would like to convert mfd as well though, do you know if a white filter out of a standard MFD is the same size as the one in a trip computer?
    And if so has anyone got one lying around out of a broken mfd?
