My wife was driving the car the other day and turned the lights on in a tunnel and said "Mike, the temperature light is on".  I looked over and told it was the high beam so all was well but we got to thinking that red was probably not a good color for a high beam indicator.  So now I'm wondering if it's supposed to be red. 
The stock color for a LM is red. I changed the lens in my Corsa dash to 
blue though, partly for the reason your wife mentioned, partly because 
blue has been the standard hi-beam color used in newer cars for some 
years now, and partly because the size and location of the Corsa hi-beam 
indicator causes glare when in use.
