While they may not have stock, most auto part stores that also supply the trade should be happy to get then in for you.

Just did a search on e-bay, and was wondering if anyone could confirm if these ones will fit with the same plug and play ease?

I used the globes off Ebay and found them very good. Better light spread than the Narva, which they replaced, 6 for the dash and 1 for the trip computer. As said before you need to use the white or black globe holders, the Globes don't come out of the blue ones.

For Western Australian people, Repco, SuperCheap, d**k Smith, Altronics DONT sell them, the only one i found to sell these particular Narva globes was Coventrys. Im gonna hike down there today and get some for my AU because this dash conversion does look rather sexy... also, has anyone had a go at replacing the bulbs under your Automatic Transmission, the ones that glow through Park, Drive etc... is it easy enough to replace those too....

Yep. I put a T10 wedge Led in the auto trans display. You need a wide angle globe otherwise the light will not spread to the P and 1st lettering. I bought a 4 led wedge and filed the tops of the leds flat and its not too bad now. I have a new globe on order off ebay to replace that one soon. It has 5 leds on it. One pointing straight and the others in every other direction. This one should be perfect.

Pull your auto surround apart, very carefully, and remove the blue plastic strip under the letters, the light will shine through much better. I put a small red LED in the shift where the red mark is and it comes on when the ignition is turned on, ran power from cig lighter. Looks good at night :D

so filing the top of the LED just disperses the light more? how do you go frosting the rest of it as i have heard of many doing this aswell...

Would you be able to use the same one's for the climate control display as well?

The Climate Control needs T10,s and the ones I have tried both the inverted a 4 LED globes dont seem to give the same light. I ended up soldering 3 LED's together to get enough light. You can't change the globe on the LCD display, if you want blue you need to change the diffuser.
