Default Led converiosn(how many bulbs?)

planning on buying purple leds 194 for dash and hvac, wondering how many Ill need and what other bulb sizes are required.

this is plug and play so long as i disconnect battery and plug in correct way right?

Dont link me to that how to on bulb replacement, it will not pull up on my phone for some reason (same for search). I just need some straight answers before I order.

First off, why purple? It won't be as bright as having stock... And I believe there are six (6) 194 bulbs behind the cluster. Plug and play is correct but LED bulbs have reverse polarity; meaning if it doesn't light up, switch it around and it will. And do not get front facing LED bulbs because you will get a lot of hot spots (spots on the cluster brighter than the rest). So get side facing LEDs. Any more help, hit me up!

Im getting my purple led underglow back under after my last one had the control box melt. ! wanted it to match. Im wanting the green part of the dash especially to be purple, as well as hi beams, theft light and such. Im getting them from superleds and they were 125degree angle of output I think. I just wanted to ordwer all at once to save on shipping.

I would get the ones that are at least 220 degrees, with the rotary style LED layout. That's what I'm running in my cluster.

Or better yet the 360 degree SMD's which are VERY bright

here are the 220 degree 5-led ones I have in my cluster

here are the 360 degree 5-led SMDs that you can also use in your cluster

whichever one you go with, just make sure you use the same type in your cluster, dont mix and match lol
