    Get a headunit that offers variable color lighting.
    The headunits that have this feature are usually higher-end and cost a bit.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      Anyone care to make a joke about needing a purple head? Could be hilarious...

            Also check out the Panasonic CQ-DF88, if you can find one.. it's multicolor but the entire face has a purple glow to it at night (it glows through the 'champaign') colored plastic. It was the first of the Panasonic Day/Night units before they dumbed them down. I had one when it first came out and it sounded great.

              Hmm thanks. Also, is it easy to open a faceplate and replace the LEDs? it looks hard, but may be possible. Has anyone ever tried it? cause the display wouldnt matter much to me, as long as the buttons where purple

                  Depending on the unit, it can be done, but you need some fairly advanced soldiering skills, not to mention the right iron, and a reeeeeally steady hand.

                    Not TOO difficult. I've done my entire dash. Depends on the LED size though.

                    That, and finding purple LED's = difficult to say the least. I've only seen them available on ebay.co.uk or buying in bulk directly from the factories.

                    Tried getting some UV SMD's once

                        So you want it to look like a VW? Aren't most of their newer gauges a combination of red / purple?
