hello,anybody have any info on where I can acquire the soldered bulbs on the circuit board for my gauge cluster on my 03 9C1,the only thing I have found is a place called BBE that requires you to send the cluster in and they upgrade to led.Seeing as I have the ability to change them myself (I just had to change my fuel gauge stepper)and the cluster open,I would like to change them myself,preferably with leds

This has the info you need including resistors size and LED brightness. From there, search on eBay or hit up your local Radioshack.

BBE's gonna say it so I'll get it over with. Radioshack wont have bright enough LED's and are way overpriced (might have correct resistors though) but like Iffy said, check ebay and you can order some from china for super cheap

I ordered LED's from E-Bay originally that were supposed to be 15k mCd - turns out they weren't. I re-did my instrument cluster recently after I ordered these LED's from Amazon. Great quality LED's VERY bright.

Got to my house in about 2 days after I ordered it. Very pleased with the purchase.

thanks guys and BBE,I didn't see your how to diagram on your site before I posted this.I had some leds and resistors laying around that I ordered from china a while back,with the help of your advice and pics my cluster came out pretty good.The leds could be a little brighter but looks good for now.I didn't see overlays for a 140 mph (police) speedo,does bbe or anyone else know where I might find some white ones,thanks again
