Dash Led illumination conversion

hi i am just wondering has anyone out there tried the conversion kits off ebay and advertised on this forum that change the dash black light from orange to blue etc.
it is being advertised as for a 172/182 but want to know if anyone has tried it on a standard 1.2 16v.

My next door neighbour made his own blue LED dash conversion on his Vectra,and I have to say it looks very good.He's even 'blued' all the interior lights and the bulbs in all the switches!.

He bought the LEDs and the resistors for peanuts,soldered them into bulb holders and fitted them in.I'm not sure how much the kits are on ebay ,but they cost pence to make.If anyone wants some details,I'll get some more info off of him and post it here.....

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

I had the blue conversion in my old vectra, the only problem was that I couldn’t see the displays properly during the day, and if it was sunny, couldn’t see it at all. It did look nice at night though.
