    White dash lights?

    The attached pic is from a Benz. I really like how the gauges are a whitish color. If I wanted my gauges to light this color, would I just take off the bulb condoms that are already in place behind the factory gauges? Do the lights just light up white without them?

    I'm not quite sure how it is setup on a WRX, but on my 99 integra I replaced the stock lights with PIAA bulbs and gave that same white-ish look. From the center of the needle, it also glowed the same white-ish color to the RPM/speed/etc the needle was pointing at.

    This will not work.


    They are white incandescent bulbs, and the gauges have a green coating on the back of them, so no matter how white the light is, it turns green. If you add a colored bulb cover however, you can alter the color of the gauges like I did (red).

    Doesn't green + red = brown?

    That's what I'm asking, if the green changes the colors.

    No, the red covers overpower the green film.
