Simply upgrade is to change the bulbs in your dash for blue LED's and remove the green cover behind clocks. I did mine and whilst clocks were out put some Fluor orange vinyl on pointers they look grat in the dark. No idea how to change little screen at bottom of clocks for mileage though. There are a few threads on here with more details and specs for bulbs etc.

As vwbus917 says.

I actually kept the white bulbs and replaced the green diffuser with a red one. Very simple to do and saves mincing around with clock swaps- and the associated expense.

Kate, did you also change the green filter on the LCD's? If so how.

Thanks

1) Remove the clock housing from the dashboard and unplug
2) Remove the bezel/cover so you are left with 'open' clocks
3) Remove the metal dials
4) Remove the circuit board
5) Unscrew the digital display from behind the circuit board
... the digital display should now be free
6) Remove Green diffuser and replace with colour of your choice
7) Refitting is a reversal of the above ;)

It's a very fiddly time consuming job (I had 3 to do)- but well worth the effort. Plenty of patience! x
