Re: interior lighting

It certainly does.

I think a few people have looked at changing the dashboard light colour in the past but can't recall the outcome.

Re: interior lighting

i know for fords and other cars (boy racers ones usually!!) you can get the bits that go over the dash display,exactly the saema s ones in there already but different colours,white is usually the colour i see everywhere! but i know that they also light up a different colour if you get the right one...a friend did it with a golf,changed it from normal green to blue by just doing this.
not sure on the other parts of the will be as simple as changing the bulbs where they are clear but the rest?dont know!!

Re: interior lighting

I changed all the LED's on my old Peugeot convertible, seriously wished I hadn't started it by the end of the process. Had the dash apart so many times. I imagine it would be the same process, take the dashboard apart and change the LEDs/bulbs. With the windows switches etc you will need to open them up and de-solder the LEDs on them, source a supply of the same size LEDs in a different colour and solder them in.

Lots of hassle, whether it's worth it is up to the individual. I only did the PUG as half of the dash bulbs were broken.
