    Will definitely get all the skin's text the same color next time around (hopefully this weekend). I think it needs to be somewhere in between the top text bar color and the other buttons/text.

    In the picture of the stock dash above, you see the little "ramp bar" in the AC control screen, showing the fan strength? I was thinking about putting something matching that in for the volume and XM sat strength, right above the bottom button bar - but then I thought it might be a bit much for this skin. Thoughts?

    I think it would be a great idea and would really suit the controls. (as long as it's not to large).
    I also agree with a previous comment about the bmw logo (amber).
    Truley can not wait for the finished skin, keep plugging away at it.
    Cheers Mick.

    finally....a skin that meets the needs of e46fanatics. Cant wait for you to finish it man..what type of gps menus are you going to be using...iguidance perhaps? . let me know..looks great though. Check on e46forum.com for the exact hue of the gamma colors. I read some forum that gave the actual makeup of the amber that is used in our dashes. goodluck with everything

    I haven't been able to find any yet that match the "box matrix" type of LCD text like the rest of the car. The one I used does match, but its got the lowercase. Maybe I'll look into modifying the font itself, depending on how easy it is.
