    Clocks & Display Lights (Upgrade)

    Reading through a few posts yesterday and saw that people have been changing their bulbs that light up the speedo clocks and the dual function display. I saw that they were upgrading to ice white LED's that looks brilliant. I have taken my display to pieces and have found the two bulbs that need replacing from yellow to ice white LED's.

    I need to know:
    Where i can get these LED's from?
    If they will be the same fittings?
    Are the bulbs the same as the ones that light up the clocks??

    Cheers

    Good spot there, it seems like alot of money for one LED. There must be a cheaper alternative. Do you know how many bulbs are behind the clocks, because it could get expensive????
