    '05 Guage backlight color change?

    Hey all,

    I'm looking to change the backlight color on my '05 STi guages (both the main (gas/tach/speedometer) and the Perf Guage Pack, from the stock red to a matching interior blue (I want to keep the pink STi logo on the tach though).

    Anyone know (a) if I have to replace the guages (I saw elsewhere that someone had some nice looking Blitz perf gauges) or (b) can I just get a light kit and replace the existing lights?

    Tks

    hmmm.....

    not sure if the face of the gauges is clear or what....like the part that the color shines through to illuminate the numbers and such....
    such as on the stock WRX, it has that stupid green film...

    if this one just so happens to have red film...it's no use..

    if it's clear with red lights behind it, then you can change it by just getting blue bulbs or whatever you want...
    take the cluster apart and check it out...
    just whatever you do, you don't want to take off the needles
