    they might

    white dials have a different diffuser behind the dials to those with black ones.

    The white diffuser is designed to spread light evenly over the dials, whereas the diffuser on the black dials directs the light to the edge (for the numbers) and centre (for the needles)

    why do you want white neelds on white dials tho?

    if the needles are transparent and light up the same colour as the dials you're not going to be able to see them

    Yeah they light up,i had red leds in my astra dials at one point.
    I had black dials though,but its not the dials that light up,it's the digits around the edge ,so they should look ok.
