The needles won't glow red at night because of the blue led's behind your gauges, unles you buy a needle kit. Here is a pic of mine with blue needles and the web site to buy the needle kit which is not cheap. good luck.

the LEDs for changing just the needles is 15 bucks at teamcelica.com. is that "not cheap"? if you want the screen red too then that will cost you another 25. and for the indiglo blue face overlay just buy one online. there are many styles

naw you can do what i said and buy the RED LED kit from teamcelica, put those in, and paint or clear your current stock needles if you are planning on getting overlays. if you want to keep the stock gauge face that wen you have the problem, might as well get overlays anyway. the got really cool ones. like in Isaac's first pic is an example of blue gauges with red needles and you DONT need that import intelligence kit for that

^^check ebay ok the gauge face overlay is totally independant or the LEDs you put under it. Get red LEDs and paint your needles red. if you want your screen red too get the red LED screen kit if blue get the blue LED screen kit. the kits for the needles and screen are sold separately at teamcelica.com so you could mix and match
