Yo niggas, whats the replacement globe for the trip computer light? i have to take off the whole facia to get to it???, i also want to pull the instrument cluster out, is it cheaper to do a LED conversion, rather than replace the stock globes?

you *can* pop the trip out, but if you need to do the instrument cluster as well then just take the surround off anyways - takes 5mins. plus you'll risk scratching the T/C or snapping off some of the clips if you pop it out :?

the cluster bulbs are pretty cheap from fraud anyways! i prefer the stock look with my high-spec cluster, so i wouldn't bother with LED's
