Hi I just bought my first mx-6, and right now its just rather stock. I was wondering if anyone had some good looking cheap ideas to spruce up the interior around the dash area. :D

Well, you can change all of your interior lights (door, map, dome) to red, blue, amber, green, etc to match your car. The bulbs that are used is #194. I've done this mod to mine and it looks pretty tight at night. I got them from Walmart. heh heh

I just tried that the other days...but the bulbs that the ac controls use is a really small non standard bulb... and then they put a green plastic cover to give that green color the only way i've heard of is to paint the lil' tiny bulbs w/ some sort of translucent paint and this will probably eventually melt off anyways..

well if you want to do it white..you can just take off the green plastic cover and that would give you regular light...i'm not sure that it will show up White but you can try it...

Correct. You can use a flathead screwdriver to get the cover off and it just pops right in when the 194 bulbs are installed. Enjoy!
