As a new owner of a silver 03 I4-AT coupe, I would like to switch to the 05 lighted switches but the dealer wants over $150 for the switches and online they are $120 to my door. For that price, I can do without lights!

The 05 coupes are quite elusive, if not extinct in the wrecking yards but the sedans are plentiful and boy do they look similar! If i buy the sedan switches I can compare and if they do not fit then they will exchange.

Herein lies the problem, the odds of an 05 coupe coming in are slim to none so I would be stuck with used $55 sedan switches.

I know the coupes and sedans have a different part # but has anyone had the opportunity to actually compare the sedan and coupe switches?

they should be interchangeable from the sedan and coupe.

honestly though, IMO it's not worth the money/time at all. I have the illuminated buttons on my car & they aren't very bright and are barely noticeable

The air bag covers are different so who knows about the fitment, but another question I would think about is if you simply plug in the switches if they are going to even light up or if you need to run a wire for illumination

Also keep in mind that sedans switches/buttons light up a different color than the coupe.

The air bag covers ARE different due to the coupe being a three spoke and the thread by princess indicates to run the wire but that is not a problem for me, but I did not realize the sedans were a different color, hmmmmmmmm.

I believe the sedans light up a blueish/green or white while the coupes light up orange
Yeah - my sedan has white backlight and white needles on the gauge cluster too. I'd like to mod the needles red sometime in the future ...

I think the 06-07 coupe switches fit as well so don't just wait for an 05 coupe to roll into a junkyard. If an 06-07 coupe is in a junkyard, get those switches.
