This has been discussed before. Use the search option, from what I understand, they are not LEDs. The only way to do it is by the suggestion above, with a blue film.

The cluster lighting is provided by LEDs, however it's not just a few, there are a ring of many LEDs on a circuit board behind a diffuser when I took apart the cluster just enough to see them, it will be a fair bit of de-soldering to get all the LED's out to change them to a different color.

you could check V6P.net. I believe there are threads relating to this. There could even be a DIY, can't remember. I does seem like a monster project. Have to remove part of dash, gauges,etc. potential for bad luck issues could be high. Give it a try. Nothing ventured................

the Mileage is stored in two places, the ECU and a memory bank elsewhere in the car...

So switching the cluster will keep your millage accurate?

I stand corrected, the ECU keeps a track of the mileage but the cluster does not. If you change the cluster i think there is a form or some info you have to register to let the vehicle registry know that your cluster reads different from the actual mileage so that if you sell your car you dont get in trouble for false mileage.

The white cluster with the blue needle is exactly what I was trying to figure out how to do. So the 06-07 clusters are interchangeable? I have an 04 lx coupe.
