Anybody change the color of the heated seat buttons to match the rest of the stuff?

Looks good i'm gonna go with super white. Did you did the clock leds in white paint? How did you change the seat heater buttons?

I still have to dip the clock buttons in white paint because I have "eyes." And with the seat heaters, the panel just slides out and then you can unclip the buttons from the panel. you will see both lights when you pull the buttons out and I unscrewed them with a phillips head and just put the blue for the seat and the red for the indicator. Prolly the easiest of all the lights to replace...LMK if you have other questions!

So you need to replace two bulbs? Which ones fit?

Does the blue light bug your eyes at night? I've seen some posts that white gets annoying (yes, i know u can dim them), just wondering if anyone has regrets about blue.

hello!

I need to remove the plastic cover that covers the gauges. Is it easy to take off once youve taken out the gauge cluster?

My bad on the last post. I linked the link. oops. Anyway, update on my gauge cluster bulb change. I purchased led bulbs from superbrightleds.com just because I used them in the past. I ended up using the WLED-WHP 194/168 bulbs. Not sure about anybody else, but the recommended Tri-power 3 LED bulb in the guide are not exactly #24 in size. The base is significantly thicker than a standard #24 bulb. Rather than force them, I used the Super Star single high-flux #24 LED from autolumination.com.

Also, for the keylight, I used a SuperStar #74 bulb which fit fine.

Next up is to replace the climate control per the info found elsewhere in the forum...
