Interior Lighting Opinion, Poll :)

Well, I have decided to finally re-do my whole interior lighting.

Not with neons, just the dash, window, cruise, guages, ect...

Right now the dash is blue. I' am thinking of changing it to white (along with the guages).

So, Which color do you guys think will look the best?

Blue doesn't look ricey at all if done right. I actually had someone ask me if the car came stock like that (with blue led and indiglo lighting).

Now if I had your car, white would match it better. The problem you may have is doing white gauge backlight. The older clusters still have a thin plastic that isn't perfectly clear even after removing the paint. The only way to know is to clear the gauges and put a white led to see how it looks. If that doesn't work, you can always custom design your own full face indiglos in white kinda like how the corollas have. But that's just imo.

It depends on your dash and gauge light colors.
