usually we order lights fromI just purchased my E this week and can't wait to add some interior LEDs. I've never done anything like this but really think the lights look great. When posted, the install guide should be a great help.
Where did you buy the LEDs?
Do you think the guys at the local auto parts store would help me out to make sure I do everything right, Im only 18.
You can! Although, it won't look quite like the 07+, you can replace the color behind an 03-06 gauge cluster by using LED's. There's an old thread which in summary, suggests you use wide angle LED's in the color you want. We used Tri-power 3 LED bulbs (as they are called) from http://autolumination.com/74.htm You will need 9 in total, 7 for the gauges, 2 for the odometer. If you wish to have completely separate colors for the gauges and odometer, you can do so. The colors will not separate for each gauge, but you can create a gradient effect if you like. Minor dis-assembly is required to remove the cluster. Mostly, this consists of removing a couple of screws and exerting some force to pull the upper driver's side dash piece off. If you don't have a service manual, head to autozone/pepboys and review the procedure in store. It's not terribly difficult.is that led behind the gauge cluster as well? ive been wanting to change the color of mine for the longest time!
Would an 07 cluster fin in an 03 EX?????
Nice lighting! I did something similar. I also brought the lights down the center console & upper glove compartment, so the lights kinda make a "T" in the cabin. The red floor lighting completes the look (unfortunately floor lights turned off in these pics.)My first Element mod. I just wired 3 LEDs on the PAX shelves, 1 on Driver side, and 3 Reds in the Subwoofer. All are wired to the rear ACC fuse through add-a-circuit and a switch button mounted in the ashtray thing to the left of the steering column.
