    Hello all

    First post here, so im hoping its atleast in the right forum.

    But its actually for my friends BMW 525d on a 2002 plate. He desperatly desperatly wants to change the colour of the dash lights, preferably to white, as he's getting quite sick of the orange.

    Iv seen this done on a few other makes of cars, and i can find kits for the 3 series BMW's aswell. But there doesnt seem to be anything for the 5 series.

    Does anyone know if it can be done on the 5 series, or where it can be done from?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I've never looked into a 5 series dash but surely it's similar to the 2 series, if not the same?

    PS welcome, some right clever buggers here.

    I too thought they would all be the same, so if you could do one then you could do all.

    But i had a word with Micheal from www.crazyleds.co.uk who does these kits and he has them listed for the 3 series. When i asked him about the 5 series he said this:-

    "Hello
    Is this still E39 shape
    If so i tried to do one about 3yrs ago(from a speedo i sourced at scrappys) and it broke when taking it apart(pulling needles off broke the motors) so i have not pursued it as i thought many other people would have the same problem.

    Have you ever seen a one done as maybe i was unlucky

    Best regards
    Michael"


    Is it a problem with the dash going haywire when its put together after its been disassembled once. Or was he actually just unlucky?

    And has anyone actually seen a white dash in a 5 series?

    Cheers.
