It's possible. But the LEDs did not get swapped, just the tint on the gauge.

I'll know more when I actually drive at night.

Possibly the material they used to manufacture those gauges lets more light through. They would look brighter then.


On a side note, it doesn't look like they incorporated the warning lights into these gauges. Do they still shine through, and what does that look like?

All the warning lights & indicator lights are the same. Only the colors changed.

The ones that come on during boot-up all look normal.

The material is just as thick as OEM from what I can tell.
