Default 15/17 WRX Hvac rings

Hello, looking for help on finding a part number or place to pick up WRX hvac dial rings. They're black in the WRX, but red in my STi. I want to swap mine out.

Any one know a part number? Or even if this is doable, or do I need to replace the whole control box?

Default 15/17 WRX Hvac rings

If you want oem I believe you need new controls. But if you just want red rings than...

Or you could dip them.

The rings do come off...... I took mine off and painted them black. Took about 30 min + waiting for the paint to dry between coats.

Do the oem rings just pull out? Wondering if I find a WRX owner that might swap, how it would be to just take them off.

Word to the wise, the aluminum stick on rings don't cover the red. You can still see red around the bezel. And they don't stick very well.

I would be interested in swapping with you, but I think it would be easier to swap the whole hvac control unit.

Curious to this as well, don't the red rings light up as well or am I mistaken?

Mine don't light up. The chrome ring around the dial light up red. But the background ring looks like it's just a matte red.
