You made that look easy. Good Work! Imagine how much the dealer would charge for that.

depends what area of the cluster your replacing. from what i recall, theirs 3 types. beige, black & green. you only need a couple greens, but black and beige you should get at least 12/ea. just replace all the bulbs since your back there, the bulbs are cheap.

depending on the parts guy, he can probably drill down exactly how many bulbs you'll need of each type. good luck.

bimmerdude, sorry to hear u had bad luck... did u do the work indoors?

btw, i mentioned on this thread, if you going to change the bulbs, replace them ALL... they are cheap, so you might as well change them at the same time.

well i least you got some practice! good job...
