This is my second 3-series BMW and I've always hated the orange too.

All are PLCC-2 LED's except the window switches. I think they were 3mm LED bulbs and was more of a pain in the ass than the others.

Been playing around with alot of different things with guages and couldn't seem to get what I wanted. Recently seen a Porche GT3r with red guages and red seat belts so decided to go that route. I have the red seatbelt webbing for front belts and also two red racing harnesses for back seat (for the kids). Hopefully get seat belts done this weekend.



Lit up


Started with all blue


Then went all white with blue lit needles

This is sick! I had no idea we could do something about that damn orange lighting! Good job
