Kind of off subject, but can anyone help me understand why those gauges are 2 different colors? Both have green covers over the bulbs. My only guess from really looking at them is the face of the top gauge isn't as close to the glass as the other. In which is letting more light from the rear come thru.

The computer.... because it's plugged into the OBDII port.
