So someone on the corsa c uk Facebook page just uploaded pictures of his own creation for all his dash lights, if anyone could let on any ideas or tips on what he has done if be ever so grateful! It all looks so modern and sleek and I wanna do the same to mine :)

White leds and illuminated needles by the looks of it

Cheap as chips and easy to do :)
If it doesn't fit,
force it,
If it breaks,
It needed replacing anyway :thumbs:

Not as cheap as I thought tbh

Really easy to do though and you can buy 3 bulbs from crazyled.co.uk for pennys

Yeah piece of p**s in a C, I really struggled with my B haha. Everything was really awkward with where I put my alarm.

Some guy with a lupo put loads of different coloured sticky notes over the bulbs and it looks class when it's on

I love it! I have a 6n2 now which is practically the same design as a Lupo so I'm thinking of stealing his idea haha

So I finally decided how I want my dash lights! So as you see on this picture of my clocks, the numbers actually light up rather than just having lights to light the whole clock up, but I want the text to be like a pure white and the needle to light up a nice blue rather than white.

And I want the theme to be the same throughout all the dash, so all text and what not a pure white and the lights on the dials to be blue, reckon this'll be possible? I would just buy a full dash kit but you can inked get single colours, so if anyone knows all the different bulb types that'd be great!
