ive nearly finished converting all my switches in the focus for blue leds and was going to get some of the blue twist fit leds for the speedo when i saw these [url="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290391735674&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT"]http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...e=STRK:MEWAX:IT[/url]

really like them and think they'll look well with what ive done. just wondered has anyone fitted them on here or know if there a pain in the ass to fit :rolleyes:

cheers

Not that many i think its about 5 of the top of my head but before you do that you are aware that the dials are caked in a green glue type stuff that makes them light green.

i read how to do it somewhere but decided not too it was a pretty involved process where you had to completely strip the dials down quite frankly done that once and it resulted in a new cluster

I looked into a full interior led change over (a/c switches etc) but i really dont want to shred my car yet again for the sake of something that my mate has already done to his and having seen the results hes got i dont think i will. His lights up like blackpool illuminations at night and tbh thatd just really annoy me when just trying to drive home. Best car for dials are vw's with the blue and red combo's i love that lol
