Yup, I've got the bright white color for the dash lights. Even the door lights are bright white.

Anyways, from superbrightleds.com, these are what I got:

For the top cluster lights, there are 3. I used T1.5 series LED Twist Lock Lamp. Once the pop-up window comes up, its under T1.5 Instrument LED bulb.

For the switches around the cluster, I used NeoWedge series LED Lamp. One the pop-up window comes up, its under NEOx High Power LED Instrument bulb. They 3 sizes 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm. The Emergency blinker, Rear Window Defroster, and Cruise switches uses 4mm. The Light Adjuster, and Radio switch uses 5mm.

For the map lights and door lights, under the LED Festoon Bulb, when the pop up menu appears, I used 3022-X4 LED Festoon Bulbs.

I have not completed my LED conversion yet, but thats some of the lights I replaced. I'll post pics of how they look. In order to have the white light effect, use a heat gun on the image in front and peel it back. Behind it is a blue film that you can remove so it doesn't look blue if you use the White LED light.

hey would a blow dryer work for this as well instead of the heat gun? lol....i'm gonna order my bulbs today. was debating between white and Blue. maybe i'll mix it up. haha. i wanted a grey bulb since my car is gothic grey but they don't have it. i'll do a DIY for this when i get to is. havent taken apart the Climate Control yet, but i wonder if this would take similar bulbs as well. i know a site LEDautomotive.com that sells climate control kits for the civics. the dash bulbs are the T1.5's maybe they are the same for the climate buttons too.

for the hazard, radio, cruise, Rear Defr how did the bulbs come out? is there a film there as that needs to be removed?

The blue film is behind the image on the switch. You can also use a blow dryer too if thats the only thing you have. Those bulbs twist off with a flat head screwdriver.

installed my LEDs, looks clean as shit! wasn't too hard. it was actually a little time consuming due to my oil and volt gauges...one thing though my rear def, radio, sun roof, hazard and light adjuster lights don't work and the bulbs were the wrong sizes. the light adjusters wouldnt fit. it was too big, and the others just don't work. the felt a little too big as well. i got 4 4mm's and 1 5mms. i disconnected my radio switch so i didnt get a bulb for that.other then that it looks real good.

For the LEDs, sometimes you have to turn them the other way to get the to light up. If they don't light up, remove it, turn it and put it back.
