I just bought my 2010 GSR in Octane Blue. I want to put blue interior lights but it will clash with the red climate control lights. Does anyone know how to change out the lights?

taking apart the climate control isn't difficult. The changing of the LEDs is the tricky part.

You will need to replace the red LEDs with the blue LEDs of same brand & type. Any other LEDs may either blows, or just not light up. However the most difficult part is that Automotive LEDs are usually sold in bulks & I doubt you can find them in your friendly Neighborhood store.

By the way, I design automotive center console area as my day job. :D

I have added the accent lights before but sottering into an electrical board makes me a little nervous...and I like the way the blue interior looks. What kind of accent lights were they?

I actually just did that last week. If your not handy with a soldering iron or have a steady hand I seriously suggest not trying it. The leds you need are called "0603" surface mount leds. They're literally smaller then a grain of rice and if you aren't careful u can EASILY FRY UR CLIMATE CONTROL BOARD. With that being said it looks damn good if you do it... If ur thinking u may wanna attempt this google image "0603 led" and you'll see what I'm talking about. Goodluck with whatever u decide to do

You cannot honestly admit that doesn't fit all of the stereotypes of rice. We can play "do what your heart tells you what is right" until the cows come home, but let's just call a spade a spade here.

i see what your saying and i agree with it for the most part. in my honest opinion though rice would be putting lights in the vents, floor, underglow, and everything else we know as rice. But changing the climate control knobs from red to blue is the equivelant of buying a passport escort 8500 in blue rather then red because its easier on the eyes :shades:

edit: better example: say you have a rally red x.. but you always wanted a purple x... they dont make purple x's..... what do u do if your hearts set on purple? if you have the $ you go get yourself a paintjob lol
