there are some older head units that changed color but that seems to have faded away. Sony has some red and blue/white head units but you really want orange if you are trying to match your dash lights. I have complained about the same thing for years because i love pontiacs i have had four but never had a radio match the dash lights

I'm just as picky as you guys are about the dash lights matching the lights on the receiver. I bought the Sony CDX-M9900 but havent received it yet. If that one is out of your price range, they make a few more that offer the red lights. I was also looking at the Kenwood KDC-MPV8025.

I got this one And it has a variable color LCD it changes these colors And the red looks very good with the interior dash lights of the bonne.

I looked at RF for their mp3 receivers but I really didnt care for any of their designs. I think the Sony ones look a lot better. I even liked that Kenwood one more than any RF.
