I'm less than 2 weeks into BMw ownership and I already have the itch to make some minor and major changes to the car ('04 325Ci) - first off, I would like to paint the gauge cluster needles red ala M-spec. I can think of 10 ways to do it, but was curious if/what any of you guys used to do it? I've read people using nail polish to Sharpie markers...

Suggestions?

there is a company that sells gauge front panels that make them look like the M series and they claim you dont have to remove dash or gauges - they sell it for around 70 bucks.... just one way to go about it (I think the co. is uuc..) yea not much use on company sorry do a google search - i found it this way yesterday - its one of the big beemer mod tuners
