Default What LED is this?

I have changed all of my dash lights to blue LEDs. Everything looks great but my head unit is in red LED's and it bugs the crap out of me that it doesn't match. I'm wondering how much it might cost to change the LED's to blue in the faceplate. However I don't know what LED's they are. They are obviously SMD, but can anyone help identify these so I can look them up in on the internet?

I opened up my faceplate and found 25 of these little suckers. It might be a pain to solder them, but if I can find the LED's for a few bucks it'll be worth it.

Just a thought, wouldn't it just be easier to pick up a blue head unit? instead of going through the trouble of changing all those

Easier, yes... cheaper, no

$5-10 in LEDs beats $100-200 head unit.

I do quite a bit of work with changing led colors and im going to have to say that those are 0603 SMD's, OR for a little more reliability you can use 0805 SMT's where abouts in iowa are you located, Im right on the border in minnesota here and actually have about 75 of those style on hand.
