Bought some led replacement bulbs to try as replacement to incandescents in instruments. Work great! Takes a little pressure to get them into sockets but they do work fine. Only caveat.... appears the instrument maker put a orangeish rubber "hood" over the regular bulb to dim them a bit. The instrument's display seems to be more "defined" which I like. The leds don't appear to project too much light when facing the instrument. Looking at the instrument from behind... the whole body of the instrument "glows". Since there's little heat from these, I don't think (to be determined) it'll be a problem. The rubber "hood" will fit over the new led's if needed. Plan on also replacing the upper station's (and lower station's overhead console's) backlight's with same type. ... 2749.l2649
