It requires unsoldering and resoldering a lot of surface mount LEDs right?

wow, that looks real nice.

iirc, they found that the orange/redish color was the most easy on the eyes in the dark, which is why BMW went with that color. My lotus has same orange-red color as the 325.

you are absolutely correct. That is also the reason why the US Army use red to read map while navigating at night.

good questions..

I have a couple parts for sale if anyone want them. Shipping is extra or free pick up in San Jose, CA

$120 for the climate control
$55 for the multifunction (red or blue)
$75 for the headlight control (red/blue or blue/red)
$30 for the start button (red or blue or White)
$200 for the dash (gauges)
$30 single window switch ($10 if you send me your part)

Everything is dim-able using the stock(stalk) controller. Also, discount will be given if you are willing to send back your core.
and here is the video of the stuffs


Thanks,
