Leds or incandescent dash bulbs

Post by RobsRR » Wed Apr 20, 2016 10:58 pm

I have my instrument panel cluster out, Rallye dash. I was wondering if you guys are using LEDs or incandescent. If LEDs what number bulbs? I currently found 1895 bulbs in the dash instead of the proper 57? Anyone have an uncut dash bezel in good shape that they want to sell?

I thought I saw a place that sells leds that plug right into the standard bulb sockets, , Ijust don't remember where. Do they have dimming range or are they full on all the time?

I found mine on ebay. I went searching for the number and couldn't find them. they plugged right in, and there is some dimming.

Another option is vleds. You can also search for the correct bulb number for your car.
