    I can't say that I like them, but we all have our own taste.

    wow... colorful. Kinda busy... I think they'd be a bit to distracting to be able to read at a glance, but I'm sure you'd get used to them. Other than the indglo rings in the centers I like them. not diggin' the new guages meets the old Odo. though.

    I like them minus the big white circle in the middle, I'd prefer that to be dark. Is there any way to cut that part off and not affect the indiglo in the rest of the area? Where brand are those guages, and what brand are the A-pillar guages? I really like the blue look. Do a search on nasioc for the odo color change tutorial. I'd post it, but don't know it off hand.

    The rings in the middle, actually aren't that bright. Since I was using the no flash setting on my camera, the shutter stayed open longer alowing more light in. They're really not that distracting at all. But you'd have to see it for yourself in person. They're a pretty close match in color to the Autometer Cobalts I have. Only real big difference is the needles. Gauge cluster needles are orange, but the cobalts needles are more red.

    I've also read the tutorial on changing the colors, but the blue bulb "condoms" turn out to be more purple than blue.

    i like them, but i think i could only stare at them for so long. they would make my eyes go buggey and make it hard to see. plus blue and red on black are the hardest colors to read, especially bright suckers like that.

    but it's an ugly car. JMO. There are other ways to do the Odometer change. check this guy out: www.vamp.whiteazn.com he does great work. E-Mail him, and let him know what you want... he also does center console, and armrest lighting.

    I'd like to see it in person. I have a feeling that pictures aren't doing it justice. 'Course, i still probably wouldn't put something that bright in my car.
