    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 am not a 14 year old girl, but I play one on the internet.

    Who was the first person to look at a cow and say 'I don't know what these dangly things are, but I am going to yank on them and drink whatever comes out.'

    So these are finally available and offered a great deal. Here are pictures from someone who just installed.


    At Night lit up



    And I like those red needles compared to my stock ones


    Figure since I'm now keeping car a little longer I am going to do this to give things a different look. If I'm not happy I could sell and make money

    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.
