    blue leds in MK5 dash

    Hi there, just wondering how would i go about changing every led in my car to blue, so thats blue dials, window switches, cd player display, centre console buttons, heater lights etc.

    heres pics of what i'd like to do






    any ideas on how to go about it? Where should i buy the LEDs and how much would they cost?

    Cheers guys

    Is the standard leds actually orange or white? Is the actual information display exterior screen orange with white leds behind it or clear with orange leds behind it?

    It would be a bit of a problem if it was the former

    I think its the bulbs that give off the colour as the speedo etc isn't orange unless lit.

    think you'll fin the bulbs are not led but cap less push in type.
    the bulds are white and its the screens that are a yellowy orange. i put blue ones in a corsa and it went green but that's what we wanted as the car was a green GSi.

    Will do - mind you, I've got to get the thing first!!

    I'll start small and add to the list as I do it.

    Anyone got an idea what the standard bulb are like? and roughly how many of them there are?

    that'll have to be my first mod
