Hehe, I totally wasn't thinking of Marathon Man
I have read people having problems with the 5w bulbs, and other having no problems. I went ahead and installed them. SWEEETT!!!
right away, I noticed a nice improvement. It's not "blue" but it's much easier on the eyes, and clearer to see. I am really happy with how my instrument cluster turned out. I will keep them in there for a while and examine them in a couple days after night driving to see how the plastic holders (that the bulbs sit in) are doing. Hopefully, all will be well.
I will take pix as soon as I get my digi cam back.
Thanks for the advice.
