bought the led bulb from superbrightleds.com. its the 5 bulb model and the color is cool white. it spreads the light better than the halogen. the bulb is a little bluer than the stock cluster but i personaly think it definatly looks better than the crappy halogen the gauge came with.

here are some pics for those who are wondering>>>>>>

looks pretty good..ive been meaning to buy a red bulb for mine. its located in the vent and just happens to match the center console lighting better.

Which red bulb would you reccomend from that site you listed? I am lost with all of those specs. I have my VDO coming in mail and was just planning on using the red condom that comes with kit. These people are taking forever for delivery though. But I do not know clarity of bulb, so I figure it is a good time to ask now and come back to thread if I want different bulb. Thanks!

is WLED-x5 LED Wedge Base Bulbs the bulb you used?

Has any tried the red of the cluster as background?
Or a 'warmer' white? This LED looks like 5000 kelvin, maybe 3800 would be perfect white match?

I had the red LED I picked up from superbrightlightled when I had that gauge. Looked good. I sold it a while back, though.

I still haven't wired my boost gauge for lighting. [:/]

I used the red condom that came with it. It matches with the center console lighting.
