I recently changed my filter in my trip computer to blue but am having trouble seeing it in the day. It looks like it isnt even there. What is the best filter replacement to use, preferably in blue (matches the car) as I use my car in the daytime more oftne now.

or ya can cheat and chuck a lit of shopping plastic bag over the end of the led, it sort of diffuses the light evenly, just enough to rap around the lens, did the job with the 'neons i put under my scooter :P Image
