blah, i had that before. there is also no cutout for the shifter selector. the blue is pretty cool at night, very very bright. the green is ok, almost like a bluish green. use weather sealant glue or something similiar to that, to get the gauges to stick to the dash. dont use the existing power source, tap into a new one.

Easier on the eyes at night.... less stress... less glare.... same reason police/military use red flash lights at night in their vehicles.
So it doesn't detract from a persons night vision.

That'* my best educated guess anyways.

I like the green better. Red is cool and all, but not as easy on the eyes

The blue lighting is not that bad but damn way is the insert itself blue? Also that green halo thing is dumb.
