How to change the colour of gages backlit?


Hello X-Trail Owners
Warm Greetings from Cold, Snowy Poland.
I'm new owner of X-Trail (Elegance ver 2.5 manual, black) and already love it. Especially, that Poland's SUV market is predominantly occupied by RAV's, Vitaras and C-RV's. X-y is not an ordinary car on the roads here.
As soon, as we get some spring here, and sunny weather (still temperature below ZERO Celsius, and thick layers of snow), I'll post some pics. Now there is nothing to share, due to road conditions that make your X-y dirty few seconds after you left carwash.
Now question: did anyone think of changing the color of the backlit for the gauges and switchers at X-Trail? In my Volkswagen Pasat I had this deep blue backlit that made the interior looking really cool.
It that possible through changing the type of the bulbs, or LEDs?
Your comments will be really appreciated
BR
Wojciech

"Dzien Dobry" or G'Day as we say it here and welcome to the Australian forum Puchal.

I think Brett has already answered your question and directed you to the correct thread for more information, but I would like to know what year is your xtrail as I might have something to show you which is even more complicated in terms of dash dials colour change, but the results would look amazing emoticon

Have a look at the photos of my dash in the other thread and let me know if yours are the same or slightly different, which would mean that your xtrail is a 2004 or 2005 model.

Jalal,

 I can't find your thread on changing the LED's on the upper display (speedo etc). Can you please redirect me and what globes did you use, where can I get them from.

Thanks.

This link takes me nowhere! I'm not too keen on the red/orange and would at least like to explore the possibility of a change.
