With the stock steering wheel, you have to turn it 45 degrees or so to see the bezel.......lighted or not. That's from a normal seating position. Now if you bend over somewhat, the bezel comes into view. The LED just brings the key slot into the light.
To this day I have trouble getting the key at the right angle, unless the bezel light is on. The light doesn't bother either me (I can't see it while driving), or any passenger I've had so far.
As to the amber color.....since you usually cannot see it, it would go with any color dash lights. IMO.
I'll keep my guns, my freedom, and my money.....you can keep the "change".
