I'll see if I can get some pics up of my dash. I have a full blue illuminated dash in my FSTI (that I did). Looks lovely at night.

Thanks
Yes 5x114
Might be having them sprayed DIFFRENT colour end of next week if I don't end up selling them on

You reckon they worth £350 in the silver they are?

Changed the interior light from the horrific blue led cluster someone had installed. To a clean white one. Hardly a mod, but Jeese that blue was bad.

Old blue
New white

Got all the LEDs for mine from Amazon. Had to wait quite a while for them all to come in from China but they have been absolutely perfect since install. Not a single flicker in any of them.

I used:

Amazon Amazon

Amazon Amazon

Amazon Amazon




I only used a fraction of what I bought and didn't use all the holders. Only bought these as I had a few holders missing.

I should add that you need to be careful when upgrading the dash lights to LED's. Mine draw so much power from a faulty LED that was in my dash from the previous owner that it actually burned one of the PCB tracks out in the dash causing me to lose all illuminations. Took some finding but I tracked the fault and repaired it. All good now.

Andy are the display bulbs generally quite weedy, they seem to be fairly dull in mine, unless its dark I struggle to see it sometimes

Yes they are, but the LED's are a little brighter. In dusk time they are still dim on the display, but at night you can see everything clearly.


Massive improvement to the car, when I got it half of the dash was plunged into darkness and the other half was flashing at me. Could hardly see the gauges and it really annoyed me.

Default Boost gauge & cabin filter

Only mods I've done for a while is getting round to installing the jspec boost gauge. Was easy to install & wire up even for someone like me who is hopeless with vehicle electrics!.


Not necessarily a mod but the most worthwhile things I've done is changing the cabin filter, only takes 5 mins...... blocked solid with crap & has probably never been changed in the cars life by the looks of it. Now have a clear screen & warm feet

Would these work in a bugeye dash cluster as well? Iíve got a few gone and need to replace them.

I would have thought the bugeye also runs the same sort of canbus bulb system as my FSTI does. It's quite standard.


The LED's I purchased were blue and my dash had been modified to remove the green filters. If your dash is standard you'll just need white LEDs, not blue.

I finally got round to sorting my center console and head unit out
It went from this



To this


Had a bad scratch on my alloy gear surround was going to repaint it but 6 hours of wet sanding and buffing later it ended up like this

Ooh that's nice. I'm tempted to do mine. Have a polishing & buffing machine at work so that'll be 10 minutes work for me!

Thanks for the comments guys. I am well happy with the way it turned out. I did it in work on a night shift while i was on the miller 10 min to set the job up 5hrs for the programme to run so it was something to beat the boredom more than anything.

Any issues with sun reflection Jon, or is it far enough down in the cabin not to be an issue?
