              Hi,
              I am organizing a group buy for '194' WEDGE 1-LED bulbs (12v gauge cluster lights) from http://www.superbrightleds.com, since there is a $25.00 USD minimum order.

              [1]- the colour and quantity you want
              [2]- your name and adress so i can subsequently mail your individual order out once i recieve the entire package
              [3]- payment via paypal, the pricing is as follows:
              $1 CND per bulb for RED, AMBER
              $2 CND per bulb for WHITE, BLUE, GREEN, VIOLET, UV-BLACKLIGHT.

                Good to see you guys getting a group buy on. I' already sold all the spare 194's I had to GTRC members.

                Endless, the 194 bulbs I bought off SuperBrightLEDs.com were the $1.49 cent each ones. Also when doing the group buy, make sure you take into account that your paying for shipping TO your place, then paying for shipping to each individual location as well. I'd just hate to see you LOSE money when you were just trying to be helpfull.

                Can't wait to see some of you guys post up pics when you finish the conversion as well.

                  I don't reccomend using LED bulbs in your headlight housing. The heat generated will lead to premature failure of the LED bulb, and will also void any warranty you had.

                  Also, I woudln't be putting anything other than white in your headlight housing anyway. If you used Red, Blue or any other colour other than white it would be completely illegal. Check SuperBrightLEDS to see if they have any exterior LED bulbs rated specifically for situations where heat is an issue.

                            yea for the tail lights I mean it will be the same color but do you think it will be brighter (like a g35 slamming the brakes) also does your cluster is brighter or its the same brightness???

                              I'd say mine is equally as bright as before. No less or no more. It's just perfect for me.

                              Also regarding the LED Tails. Im pretty sure the tails would actually be dimmer than a stock incandesent bulb. It even says on the SBL site that one of one of the downfalls of LED's is their brightness.

                              They do, however, make very bright LED bulbs (in the 10,000 MCD range I believe). This is what they use on tractor trailer applications etc. You would have to see if you could find an outdoor rated bulb with a very high MCD range.

                                yah, the flat nosed LED's with a dimple to help spread the light, so it doesn't create a brightspot on your gauges. same one's mcnab used at the beginning of the thread
