yea it can be done by changing the LED lights. But there are like 40 lights that make up the color. And sodering them in perfectly would be imposable. Many of them are so hard to get to that you would need to take the whole thing apart. And if you messed it up, you would need a whole new gauge and reprogrammed by BMW. I had like 6 little LED sodered on my cell phone. It cost me $20 for the lights and $20 for the install. I would hate to know what it would cost to buy lights and install on something like that. And I just wouldn’t trust anyone with it. After all a new cluster is like $500.

I think the blue looks like ****. Blue is for VW. Amber is BMW. You don't want people mistaking your car for a jetta.
