When I turn my parking lights and headlights on my guages seem like they light up unevenly. Some areas are darker than the surrounding and there is no real pattern to it. I don't know how to describe it, but for lack of better words, it's like a slight camoflage type pattern over all the guages. It's not noticable unless you look, but it doesn't seem normal? Anyone else have this problem? Also, will the CPO warranty cover something like this? Thanks.
One of your lights have gone out. I had the same thing happen a couple of days ago, and hope to take it all apart very soon.
Kinda sucks to have to take it apart, but it means i get to perform another upgrade. Any time i fix something, I always try to upgrade. I am thinking of either ///M guages, ACS guages, or white/black guages. Any opinions?
DO you have a pick of the ///M guages? That would be interesting. Was the color on your guages uneven all over the place, kind of blotchy? It sucks. I haven't found any classy looking guages. I'd like to see those ///Ms...
The only ones I like that aren't too ricey are these reverse glow ones. The face is grey during the day, then at night they light up red like stock gauges. Can't remember where i saw them, probably ebay.

Yeah, that's what I don't want. I agree with El Prez, darker backgrounds look better in my dash. WHITE=RICE. I see different light disperion all over the place in my guages, is it more than one bulb then?
Actually, those guages are out of an e46 3 series. I thought I might be able to retrofit the MPG aspect of the e36, but uppon further inspection today, I don't think so.
Regardless, I deffinately want to freshen up the interior (no rice) while I'm replacing the burnt gauge light, maybe just a factory replacement in alluminum with the alluminum rings pictured in my earlier post. And a custom ///M logo to add a personal touch to my fake ///M car. :lol:
