the guy who owns nis-knacks says that most multi color indiglo gauges don't match the deep dark blue of the frostbite blue of the hvac gauges but it seems that the procarparts.comreverse iniglow gauges match that blue but i'm not sure. Has anybody found some deep blue bulbs for the hvac lights since i would rather have blue bulbs with my stock than the hvacs since that look would match reverse indiglo better than having the whole hvac gauge blue but the symbols,ect arent lighted up

but you have a se-l so you would be using SE-R gauges and i have a gxe no tach so the gauges are different. the animated gif of the gauges they show a really dark blue setting with them which appears to match them but i much rather put super blue bulbs in and just get the import intellegence hvac gauges. anyone know if you could get bulbs for the automatic shift indicator?

I might need to just quit being a cheap ass and get that service manual to find out about all my interior lighting questions but the FSM is rediculously high so i'll probally end up with the one advance auto has.

the frostbite EL HVAC's match perfect with blue LED's in the gauge cluster.

yeah, plug and play with #194 blue LED bulbs. i've tried taking pics before, but w/o a digicam, i only use disposables....they have yet to turn out good. we'll see if there's any good ones on the photos i'm picking up in 20 minutes. at least i'll have new pics of the car in general.

Yup,
They do, however the hooles are much bigger than the needle rests, so they dont stay (if you kept your original guages behind this isn't a problem, but I didn't. So, when the engine is off, they drop. Sorta like a Ferarri (but they go to 6:00).

Damn I really am so tempted to do the gauge cluster swap like seth and GA but it just seems like so much work and trouble esp. when I can just get the no-tach gauges now.....

WHAT to DO-What to DO???:confused:

LOL.....yeah seth can U believe it???

Oh and Justin yeah your write up is real good but I dunno I think the hardest part would be to get the cluster with the mileage ....

I know everything else is pretty EZ...

well you don't have to have the same mileage just write down in the memo area of your owners manual or even print out a sticker and put it somewhere near the gauge cluster reminding you how far off the mileage is on the "new"gauges cluster. if i,which i hope i don't, have to tell you what i mean just subtract the mileage from the gauges with the least amount from the ones with the highest and if your stock gauges have less miles than the "new" ones Put "actual mileage -whatever the difference is" on the sticker or where u wrote it in the manual. and sethwas those are aqua ice gauges and hvacs. i was talking about the frostbite blue which is the real dark deep blue like stock VW gauges. what i want to know is has anyone found dark blue bulbs that go for the hvac lights yet? and what about bulbs for the gear indicator on automatics? oh yeah when you do the gauge swap you can use either se(ga16de powered) or se-r(sr20de powered) gauges. i rather use se-r gauges since the top speed on them are more "optomistic" and if i do decide to the sr20de swap thats one less thing i have to do.
