I decided to change my 06 2.5i cluster to blue and was curious to know what you guys think. Im no perfectionist like others and decided to use  74 high power smd leds with 360 degree light output without scraping the green film. Im quite pleased with the results, with very minimal hotspotting as well as a nice color blue, the only bad thing is the needles are quite dark in which i expected after reading the 28 page thread on gauge clusters lol.
Don't mind the section that is greenish i was 1 short on leds(coming monday), and dont mind the quality of the pic (cellphone camera)
Here it is.
Any new ways to maybe light up the needles by the way?
If i were to scrape the green film with the light output be even more intense and possibly light up needles?
