:D Those really are cool. That was one of the first things I put in my car.

Personally, I would go for an LED switchover as a first mod. You can get all the bulbs you need on eBay. I changed all the interior lights on my car to blue, and it is awesome.

What kind of a budget are you on? "not a lot of cash" can mean 10 bucks or $500 depending on who you're talking to.

my budget is anywere from around 20 to about 100

thanks i might try the reverse glow gauges[/b]
Just put mine in but you might want to get some LEDs to replace the cluster lights esp. The illum lights
If you change your cluster illum to red then your needles will be red with the blue glow behind it

speaking of speakers i wonder if it would be cool to put a ring of LEDs around the the speakers in the back that flash to the bass!

is that too lame?

I think that would kind of be lame, not to mention difficult to do on a small budget.
