    Glow Gauges Mod

    Hi guys,

    I'm from Chile and i would like tho do something about that boring green light gauges on my 2007 WRX, i know there are some tutorials for changing the colors but i'm looking for something more fun, maybe something like HONDA CRX SI DASH BOARD GLOW GAUGES MT W/TACH 88-89 W/ TACH | eBay

    I haven't found many options on ebay, maybe you guys know where to find and wich are the best options.

    i'm totally new here so thank you very much for any help.

    Saludos

    It would seem that they only made those types of white indeglo gauges for 2002-2003 WRXs, so it will not be an option for you.

    If you want something unque, how bout this

    Vivid Racing has been banned from every major Subaru site as a vendor for a reason. I would never purchase any of their products (including Agency Power, which is their house brand)...

    I was not aware of that seller, or their universal ban status.....sorry.

    That gauge however, is sold at other retailers for about the same price, and the brand SYMS is a valid JDM brand.

    No apology necessary. I would just urge you to purchase from one of the "other retailers" you mentioned, if you decided to do so.

    That's super nice! but just too expensive, maybe there is some color conversion kits somewhere or some other options? Anyway, thanks for the help everybody!!

    There are also a few companies out there that do retrofits of LEDs.... Like Interior Flair. You can send them your cluster and they will change the color for you, or you can buy one of their clusters and send your stock one back in return after the swap. The second option does have a core fee, but you get that back when they get your stock cluster.

    I have searched around, and it does not seem that anyone currently makes new faces for the '07.

    Here is an idea though for a DIY.

    First, follow those 'how to' steps to change the color of all the numbers and icons, then before reassembly, paint the black piece that covers and outlines the gauges a custom color. The gauge faces will still be black, and needles will still be stock, but all the other colors will be your custom choices.

    There isn't anything "wrong" with it - people just have different personal tastes on these types of things. People around here will speak their minds freely about these types of questions, and there will always be different opinions. If you like it, I say go for it.

    Actually, the "Model 2" style on that page looks pretty neat.

    What's your budget? Have you considered swapping an STI cluster in? I swapped one into my 2003 WRX, and it looks fantastic. It also adds features the WRX cluster didn't have, like a shift light, outside air temp, etc.

    Note that you'll have to do your homework on how to swap clusters, and you'll have to watch what year you buy. Not all clusters are a direct swap across years. For me, a 2004 STI cluster is a direct swap into a 2003 WRX, but a 2005 cluster isn't. You get the idea.
