He can do almost any color as far as the light is concerned for the gauges. Not the needles. I couldn't find any aftermarket needles.

The Stock ST needles are red, but I'm not 100% sure they will swap with the N/A cluster having not changed them myself.


N/A MK3 blue needles



Red MK3 ST needles.

They look interchangeable to me.

Thanks Ben. I would say 100% swappable. As should the any '12 and up Ford needle. I couldn't find any wrecked.

Interesting, I guess when I decide to do my custom 3 gauge cluster i'll have to look into this as well so it all matches nicely.

The only reason why I said not 100% is because I didn't actually do it to confirm it, but other than the color the needles look to have the same base and size.

The orange and blue gauges are interesting, and would almost call for a mix of red and blue needles (if you couldn't get an orange one that is).
