Get LED's ....

I would seriously just use #74 white LED's instead of more incandescent 2721 bulbs to burn out. They run cooler and draw very little power, and never burn out. They're available in almost any color for about $1 apiece. Get red if you want more red light. The light in the headlight switch is also a 2721 which I switched out for LED.




Super Bright LEDs Online Store



#74 LED replacement for 2721 bulb on the far right....

I have a 99 323is and I couldn't get my cluster out cause the steering wheel doesn't tilt. So let me know how you did it if you get it out, please.
