    Yep, it has been done though it's not easy and requires you to be very handy with a soldering iron and have the patience of a saint. If I get a chance I'll try to dig out the thread on it.

    There's a bit of coverage over on CS.net for the 1*2 SMD conversions... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dotVYFoORUk is a pretty decent overview of the process for swapping the colours on a Mk2 if it's of any use to you for getting an idea of what's involved.

    That looks amazing. What would you need to try it yourself? Or is that a long shot?

    Very steady hands, alot of patience, amazing at soldering, lots of soldering equipment, and the correct LEDs haha, and to have the time to do it all at once otherwise you'd be without everything for a while, you could still drive it I suppose but its a little illegal :smile:

    How long did it take them to get it back to you? Yeah it would be illegal even if you put a temp dial in because the mileage is stored in the speedo not ecu
