    White Dial Kits

    I need to change my dials, otherwise the blue LEDs are pointless

    Anyone heard of http://www.gbdriver.co.uk/acatalog/Astra_Dial_Kits.html and are they any good?
    Unless you know of somewhere to get the 140MPh clocks at a better price than £35.

    I may be completly wrong here but i think there just new face's. which will not get rid of the orange filter, i presume this is why you want them! the only other option is to buy completly new clocks!

    probably:

    black dials after 2001(ish) have an orange layer between the black layers, meaning no coloured LED's shine through properly.

    If you still have the bulbs that came out, test them to see what colour they are - if they are white, then you have an orange filter!!

    I knew I should have been clearer in my post

    The orange filter covers the mileometer, this has been removed and works fine
    The speedo and rev counter etc have on the back of the black dials an orange layer attached, which cannot be removed, hence why I have to replace them if I want the blue effect.

    Oddjob has proved this before if you want to see the evidence.

    So, back to my original question, has anyone used that company before? or can you recommend somewhere cheaper/same price thats fine?

    They are just stickers that go over your current Clocks, Halfrauds sell them to!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
