What cars have factory BLUE gauge/control lights?

I need some smt blue led's to swap out in my 05 WK. I ordered some from Japan but they wont arrive here for another two weeks I was just told. I want to go to the salvage yard and take out blue smt led's from cars that might be in the yard, does anyone know off hand what cars might have these small blue smt led's installed in the gauges or control buttons? Thanks. I want to go tomorrow and start ripping apart cars for these led's.

i wouldnt be talking any long trips with your interior, blue is tiring on the eyes. that is why most companys do not use it.

Re: What cars have factory BLUE gauge/control lights?

The leds I installed in the "information center" and in the esp button are insanely bright, even in the day time they stand right out. Oh well, its a cool blue and people like it.

X2. I found this to be true since I have bad eyesight and I just change mine to low.

I already tried in other threads, but it just comes out all blurry. I will attempt it again. I think the dig cam has a hard time focusing without any lights on around it. But you can see just from a day pic how the led's give off alot of light. Def an easy and cheap mode to do.

Re: What cars have factory BLUE gauge/control lights?

Timmy you were saying in another thread I believe... there is a coating over the standard bulbs that are soldered to the circuit board. I also think you mentioned that if you were to scrape off this coating then it would make the bulb glow a different color? It would make sense since you installed the new blue led's and well your control panel is blue now. So this being the case, the panel itself is not green and its the light produced by the bulb itself. Are stock installations regular incandescent bulbs? Cause then the dash would glow the standard white-orange color of an incandescent bulb with the coating scraped off. Have you had experience with scraping off the coating on the bulb at all?
