Board Computer Display upgrade GT/147

Hi,
a question to the electronic experts around here.
Had a look at the 2016 Giulietta Facelift and was suprised Alfa changed the BC display from a red to a black/white one.

Would this also be possible doing myself with the Board Computer of the GT/147?
Presumably some electronically knowledge will be needed, so my first questions are:

- Will this job be doable?

- are displays like these Displays standard electronic components which you can buy at an electronic shop or do you need to buy a speedo from the new giulietta (expensive).

- even more complicated: would it be possible to integrate a colour display like golf 7, controlled by an Arduino for example which grabs the original signal to the display and translates it to the the new one.

These are just thoughts for my summer car, the gt. I still really like the really pretty interior after 12 years for now but minor changes like the above would bring some new modern feeling into the car

Many thanks in advance

Regards

Michael

Could you not just fit a red film filter?

Yes, you can do it pretty easily if you can solder, I changed my Ducati Corsa dash from white to red using the LEDs from a car with red backlighting.

Adding a colour display would be far more complex.
