I love the way the dashboard lights up all red. I have the whole steering wheel with ALL the buttons and then all my seat control switches are red. I always get comments on how cool the car looks on the inside at night. The outside of the car is always sure to turn heads. I love that feeling.

The red makes my eyes go sort of wonky because I'm not used to it, but probably you could get used to almost anything eventually...

Yah, I think we just get used to whatever we have. I must admit I'd love to change the red to dark blue though, but everything would have to change (console lights, door buttons, steering wheel buttons, CD player, climate control, dash, etc). I think it would look pretty sweet (I'd like to take the white/blue color scheme I have going on the exterior with the blue tinted headlights further).

*shrug* To each his/her own.

I love the red dash lights, and my interior red lights too. I wonder why Pontiac didn't do the earlier F-birds dash lights red. My bro'* '90 is orange. I'm not sure if the newest ones are red.

Jason, you like the red interiors eh? I don't mind driving with them on, the white were SOOO overbearing. Plus the red is just sweet. My friend told me the interior of my car looks like a club....lol. I took that as a compliment.

Well our lights are more of a red-orange or orange red.....

Yes the red lights inside are nice When i open the door at night after a drive, it'* nice not to have anything blinding me.

I do have a bulb burnt out in the back, one of my map lights, but i'm not too worried about it.

It wasn't bouncing off grey leather, and 2 10" JL subs though....

WOW I am really late on this topic. The gauges were really cool at first! Now I think near the summer I am going to take them out because I am getting tired of them (along with my custom trim kit, saw a topic in here with stainless steel that looked pretty cool). Since mine is NA, the boost gauge is not a problem. There is actually a website that sells them directly, instead of going through ebay. They are reliable and good, but the only problem is that the gears P R N D... are not cut out allready. Besided that you get what you paid for type of thing.
