LED Indicators

Instrument Cluster

Replacing your instrument cluster lights with LEDs is very easy to do. LEDs have the advantage of not burning out like regular filament lights. The size you need is 194/168 (UK they are known as 501 10mm wedge bulbs). They are available in various colors. Installation is plug and play. The size you're looking for in an LED is 194/168. For the indicator lights most people go with WLED-x6. For the gauges most people go with WLED-x5.
