Did that myself Monday morning. Although I haven't driven a 
right-control vehicle in years, I held a Spooks marathon this past 
weekend for some friends who didn't care for 24.

Back on topic, the blue LEDs made the transition from cutting-edge to 
commodity just five-six years ago which should explain the proliferation 
of these silicon obscenities although I have to admit that dimmed blue 
light is very easy on night-vision and works well for dashboards and such.

I'm not sure which of the following visuals would be more disturbing...a 
desperate marketing exec all out of ideas or a dope fiend combing the 
carpet for dropsies.
