It dosent specificaly say, but there is a light bulb attached specifically to the lighter housing. Just cover it in the celophane and you will have what-ever color you want. Did the same to the lights on the auto shifter too.

i jsut bought a new bulb for mine. got an led bulb off ebay. i really dont recall the number of it frown but yea it comes out really bright, and even though it looks kidna whiteish it is all blue in my car. So i woudl suggest searching on the site for the bulb number. also the celp[hane will not come out good in blue and will be dimmer.

i bought an led light w/ 10 blue leds in it, cracked it open and took the circuit board with leds on it out and used that. the lights also scroll from left to right. i'll see if i can't get a video of it.
