Stereo LED Color Change?

Hi Guys!
I have seen quite a few Boxsters that have changed the LED color in their Gauges, AC Controller, and Buttons to either blue or white. Id like to do this mod but want everything to match in the interior, including the stereo. Does anyone know if the color in the Stereo Face can be changed? I have a CDR-220 Head Unit. Thanks!

Ive heard great things about that website for the LEDs. When you installed the dash lights, (5 small + 2 large) do you remember if the 5 smaller were used for the digital display? I'm looking at doing white LEDs for the analog and blue for the digital.

Sorry for the delayed response.....the 5 small bulbs are for the digital display (3) and the other two small and 2 large are for the upper needle gauge area. And they are very easy to install. You just need patience and remember that they have to be installed in a certain direction. If they dont light up...spin them 180 degrees and check again. Their newest kit is way brighter then the kits from a couple years ago....very bright and fills the gauges competely. Let me know how you make out.

Their website says "soldering required". Is this true?
