That's pretty awesome, but I am not that bold.

Dang, that's a LOT of work! Not worth all of that effort IMO!

ya it isnt an acura...

but anyways.. i used to own a civic, and i see people switiching out the colours easily since they were just individual bulbs, but for this car, they are leds that are welded to boards, whcih i am scared of short circuiting since we have a hybrid with so much technology...

but the green really makes eth car look dated compared to the white

Just to clarify, the interior electronic is no different from any other car, you still have 12V and you wont blow the electric engine by blowing a fuse in the coupé :) If you are inside the radio and makes a fault you will blow the radio, amp, speakers(not likely) or a fuse somewhere. Its expensive enough, but you wont risk blowing the hybrid system :D

Its no hard operation, the hard part usually is to choose the right kind of led. You want it to be the same color as the rest, you want it to be right brightness (brighter than the rest looks bad and is irritating for the eyes, less bright than rest looks bad) and you need it to be the right voltage and amps.

Just curious, if anyone was to do this and accidentally welded super bright LEDs; does the brightness control that controls the dash lights control the brightness of the console lights too? Maybe something to think about if you're driving in the pitch black and can't adjust your console lights. LOL.
