View Full Version : OEM orangey-red interior LED color?

Hey guys,

I've got an Alpine (CDA-117) headunit with blue LEDs that does not match the OEM orangey-red of the rest of my dash. Does anyone know what wavelength the newer BMW cars use in their dash (I'm assuming they're LEDs now).

Amber is around 605nm, but I wanted to see if I can get the exact specs on the ones BMW uses so I can mod my headunit to match. Thanks!

To match BMW orange illumination, the LEDs' wavelength must be around 605 nm (600–610 nm).

Not sure about the more modern cars but it should be the same.
