Yes mine is exactly the same as that.

So I just unsolder the led and resolder a new blue one in using the one you linked from eBay on your build thread?

I might try that although soldering isn't my strong point

Yep that's exactly what I did for my gear knob.  The only thing I can think of is that with it being only one LED, if the voltage of the board is regulated down for the red, a blue LED might be a bit dimmer.  The 1500mcd LEDS I bought were plenty bright enough though.

Tweezers are almost essential if you don't have solder wick to get the old ones off. When I tinned the contacts on the new LEDs I drew the iron away to leave a 'spike' of solder sideways out from the LED. Makes it a lot easier to flow solder back on when fitting.

Obviously be aware of the orientation of the LED. There's a cutaway on one corner for this. 

Let me know how you get on!  If you prefer I don't mind if you send them to me with the LEDs to solder.

Yeah that is not cool for a £30k car.  Don't let them give you any crap about it being 'because of the clothes you wear' or 'the way you sit' either!

Hey Phil, how did you get on with your seat and changing your footwells?

I converted mine to white, using some trafficator fuse style bulbs and making new connectors so if you knacker yours accidentally, I've got a spare set of stock red ones!

I'll guess it's either,

Something Mountune,

Something Carbon Fibre,

or a Black Wrap for the roof.
