I haven't field-tested the gauge illumination bulbs yet, so I'm not sure how well they'll light it up at night. Comparing them head-to-head with the standard bulbs they appear brighter, but it's a cooler light.

Down the road I'll likely replace the turn signal bulbs and the flasher relay with one that can support LEDs.
I think I'm missing something here. Did you not change out your charging system indicator bulb with a Red LED? From the looks of it, it's a BA9. Is that correct?
