My Ride: 2001 BMW 330i
LED Mod - Stock Business Cd deck and AC LED switch.

I really like the stock system in my 2001 330i. But I was getting tired of the amber color throughout. So I decided to make a change.

I recently switched the LED's out of my stock Business CD Deck and AC panel.

My camera washed out the display, but in real life it looks great.

Next up is the gauge cluster.

What do you think?

Not bad. I did this to my cluster but havent completed the radio as you know it is tedious work! What did you put in place of the orange plastic where the Temperature LCD dispay is?

I tried a few different things. Blue transparent paper, blue stock paper, they all look different. I went with white 30lb card stock.

That's what looked the best? I'm asking because for the time being I it in computer paper lol. So what exactly is what you used? I don't understand 30lb?

As long as you like it, that's all that matters. Personally, I would have stayed with the orange because it's a symbol of BMW pretty much.

Looks bright as hell, but it's nice and clean.
