Dashboard Lighting

I know the dashboard/gauge lighting in the FX 35 from atleast 2004 until now is in amber. I thought I saw a picture on google of the dashboard lighting being white in a 2003 model. Is this true, or are absolutely ALL FX models in amber? My wife hates amber, and really wants a different color in the interior. I've read the couple threads about replacing the led's yourself, but that seems like more of a job than I am willing to handle. Thanks.

Welcome to the boards. I'm pretty sure all production FXs are amber lit. I've seen some pictures of someone I think in Russia that converted the lights on a FX to white.

It's funny how much the dash lighting has an impact on the buyers impression. Personally I will not buy a car with a green dash. Amber is my favorite though.
I dont care much for the super bright and colorful new stuff either.

Fx is gone, current car is 04' S55 AMG

My only 2 complaints about the vehicle; the amber dash and the doors not locking and unlocking when you drive/park. I really really hate the amber dash, I would not have bought an 06 if it had the amber info screen.

It's dumb, but I hate the dash.

Funny.. I absolutely hate the black on white guages that are in Ford/Mercury and now in some Dodge/Chysler. They're like 2 large eyes staring back at ya.

I like the Acura gauges, personal preference I suppose. I think the new G35 has white gauges, I thought I saw a pciture of that?

I hate one aspect of the inside, the amber gauges. That's all. THe steering wheel cluster. It makes perfect sense, I have yet to know someone who is 100% happy with any car. There are always things they wish were a little different.
