Amber to blue dash lighting?

Does anyone know if it's possible to change the dash lighting and lcd lighting from amber to blue? I know some cars have colored "boots" that the light bulbs fit in but wasn't sure how the bmw dash is. If it makes a difference this is in a 94 325is.

Try Google on something like "e36 blue dash led conversion".

As a 30 second, quality control measure, I flung "e36 blue dash led conversion" at Google and clicked on the first link that had "dash" in its summary.

QC Passed.

It won't let me see the link....says I've exceeded my amounts of views

I guess I'll just leave the lighting alone and some day get a radio that has amber backlighting. It just looks bad right now with a mix of different color lights on the dash.

Try removing their cookies.

I clicked on about a dozen threads until I had exhausted my views, then viewed some more by clearing all the cookies, show below, that bimmerforums.co.uk had stored on my computer.

Here is a lightly edited excerpt from the thread:
I recently bought some blue LED's ... [that] turn out ... are too dull.... The seller ... said you have to remove the orange filter from the ... dials, ... so I took out the instrument panel.... On the back side of the dials it is white, but under this is the orange filter that makes your dials amber. I applied nail varnish remover, let it soak for ten mins or so, then scraped off the white and the orange with a stanley knife blade or such like. You have to repeat this a few times, but it only takes about an hour or so....
