I find you can,t see the MID in the day and at night the switches in the centre above the radio and headlight switches are too bright.

I find that the MID has 2 large blue circle's in the middle where the bulds shine through an spoil the look of it.

Hi Jim I was told to lightly sand the ends of the LED with fine paper which I did and mine look ok when I can see them.

I might change the MID from blue to a different colour to see if it makes a difference in daylight.

Has anyone fitted these to a facelift dash? if so could you post up some pics of day and nite time please?

I did the conversion in the previous vec, it looked pretty dim during the day but was superb at nite, also had some plasma dials too which looked awesome (pics on request).

Thanks

Jim
