looks pretty cool. i'm thinking of doing mine with a red backlight. how'd u do it? changed the LEDs?
i cannot make out from the pic - did the backlight colour of the digital tripmeter change as well?
also, did u change the backlights for the a/c & other controls in the central console? i think having partial red/white, and partial green backlighting would look a little out of place...

OT: regd the shortened gearshift... did u chop a bit off the OE shaft or did u install a short shifter kit?

and how much for the lighting & the gear?
thx

# The LED's were changed to white so the effect is white - have not changed the dial cards or anything. Tripmeter untouched - it is just the white LED. The light in the A/C controls & all have not been changed due to paucity of time, this stuff takes a good 2-3 days as the cluster is opened - taken to Karol Bagh then got back & re-fixed. It's the electrician who got it done so I do not really have 1st hand details of the inside story. # O.T. Yes the Gear Shift has been "chopped off" no short shifter.

Cheers

I have a question???

In my XETA- The Meter Display is White, but the Needles are dark and not lit.

The Display in the New XETA is also the same with modification to the design and needles lit in red.

Is it possible to Swap the Needles, Will it involve damaging the Display - Will it affect post sale.

Any recomendations in Delhi where I can source OEM needles and replace them.
