Sorry to bring up an old thread. I'm guessing the LEDs circled in blue require the multicolour LEDs. Could someone provide a link of which leds are needed to change these as I can't seem to find the right ones.

Your picture is showing 6 orange LEDs there which are currently on. But there are actually 12 LEDs in total in that area. 6 orange and 6 red.

Is there anyone near Manchester that can do this for me? I am not confident with the soldering part of it. Can happily disassemble and provide the led's.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Is anyone able to tell me which LED model I need from the CREE website?

They are a better price option and more easily available in the U.K. but seem to be a couple different types..

I think these are the correct ones,

Ppl on eBay offer this service along with needles and face plates.

I'm ordering 4 white LEDs. I'll is if I can glue and wire them in addition to the existing LEDs. Goal is to have them direct their light straight up to the needles so I can have white Speedo and tacho needles with everything else orange.

I can happily do this for anyone in the U.K.

Have done soldering before on electrical with my previous S3. It is a fiddly job that takes time but great when these sort of things are done right.

I am just not sure on the right LEDs in the U.K. ..

Has anyone measured the voltage (min-max) going to the leds surrounding the needles?
I need this to calculate the amount of light emitted by the leds.

Thanks!!!! I just finished mine last night , I took picture throughout the process. I ran into one problem , as you can see in the picture #2 I beloved not all leds were turning on , as I soldered them wrong . I have fixed that this morning now , but the last picture is just gonna be the same one from last night , the only difference is without all the lights it was a little dimmer .
