If you wanna be different, then go with the white. I, for one, don't like the look of the stock black guages and changed that as soon as i could. White is more racy than ricy imo.

Here is something for everyone to think about: I have done a full red LED makeover, except for the HVAC. My stereo display is blue also. Should I get the HVAC in blue or red? I'm thinking blue may add some nice contrast...

I did my whole interior in red LEDs also. I bought the blue gauges from S&H, since it has a nice mix of red. I'm buying a red HVAC panel though.

My Alpine is being changed with another that lets me change to red instead of the blue lighting.

So basically my entire interior will light red except for a little mixed blue on the gauges. Hotness!

Yeah, that is why I'm trying to decide what color the HVAC should be. The door switches, headlight, ATX indicator, speedo/tach cluster, are all in red. The defroster switch is red but lights up bright blue. So possibly the HVAC in blue might look better than in red. The blue from the stereo already constrast nicely.

I cant remember exactly what the flat rate is, but lets say $9 for you Northern Folk.



I thought there would be a bit more interest than this.....


Have everyone been spreading the word?
