    Any pictures lit up? I have these horrible memories from the ford white gages that lit up glow in the dark green at night.

    I kinda like the contrast, but kinda wish the numbers were darker. Maybe just the photo tho?

    I wouldn't. Nothing else in the interior has that color scheme.

    I like the white but I've been known to have bad taste.

    The contrast is interesting but too stark IMO.

    As much as I want to encourage your first non-cf trim upgrade, I don't think the white will look better than stock.

    I think a lot of the Porsche have black interior with white gauges, I know my Boxster did. Getting white gauges will also be an option on the new R8. I will probably do it just for a different lookout

    What i've learned about Scott's method to modding. He comes here, asks if he should do something, then laughs because he made up his mind a day ago and already ordered it and is just screwing with us.

    Choose your styling inspirations more carefully. The PT Cruiser had white gauges as well.

    Carbon fiber is the answer! If they don't offer it find someone that can make it happen.

    So since I love adding things to my car, especially simple things I can do myself, I ordered a set of LED Plate lights. Got them yesterday and then searched R8 forum for instructions on removing stock ones, felt really stupid when I learned the people changing to LED plate lights were for cars prior to 2012, mine is a 2012 and already had LED. Was looking at what I received and what was on car and noticed the new ones had much more LED lamps in them than stock so figured what the heck and installed them. Here it is with stock and new, just a little brighter.





    Vendor didnt even charge me for them and tossed in these.
