    Well I tried to use the replacement lights, for the 194/168 bulb replacement, and the lights around my guages are dimmer with a slight glow. I think the beam is focused rather than broad, and does not allow for the factory plastic backing to absorb the light properly.

    Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Otherwise /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I hope they fit my Christmas Tree!

    I'm pretty sure that they are filament. Here are some pics of a before and after on a Camaro:

    The company that sells them is : http://members.aol.com/rmacewen1/index.html
    Now the company that sells these are mainly for the F-Bodies so I don't know if the bulbs are the same? Also they added the white gauges to make it a little more dramatic but you get the point.
