Has anyone been able to succesfully make their clock blue or green? I really want it blue or green because to me red looks kind of stock. Pics would be good too if possible.

One thing I'd try, is to get your LED, and go at it with some sandpaper til the whole LED has a frosted appearance, that should help diffuse (spread) the light better, and may make the light 'paths' do their job properly. Also may help those with bright spots on their LCDs and clusters.

(NOTE: I haven't done any of these mods - yet. just some ideas)

yeah, seems all the ppl who have done the buttons blue has been unable to make the last button light up... must be something to do with the blue not being able to bend round the light refractor thing..

blue is just as easy, use a blue file or paper instead of the red.. although some ppl find the blue not bright enough during the day..

some ppls answers to that are use blue paper soaked in wd-40 to make almost see through.. i guess u'll just have to try things.. it takes about 15 mins to pull dash apart and start playing!
