Gauge color change to blue

There was another question on the forum about dash light glare but I didn't want to hijack that thread. I'm considering changing my indicator lights to blue (bluegauges.com or Marty). I know there are members on here that have changed to blue, so my question is did you notice any difference in glare with the blue lights? Thanks for any help given.

I changed all of my gauges to blue. No issues with glare whatsoever.

Mocotom,
Check out these dash lights from 2011 Ultra, he's a fellow Chicagoan. I haven't met him so I hope he doesn't mind me posting this pic for you to see. I think it looks pretty sweet, and Tracy that reminds me why did you go blue? I would have thought a lighter green. Especially with Lymey?? Just asking...

I wanted the contrast. Green would have been too much green I think. Plus, it would have clashed with my Alpine receiver. Its blue.

Thanks everyone for the response, if mine turn out as good as those in the picture I'll be thrilled.
