I think it's this one or 3mm equivalent.
I got the supply from ToreB.

white ones emited low orange, and for green, color was grey
lights in central are orange and green, they filter the leds
So what are you saying? LED's were too bright? Mine are definitely brighter.

I have 4 bulbs that are burned out. My light bar will not light up at all when the brake pedal is pushed. I am measuring 6V at the 3rd brake light. I assume it needs 12V to light, since the bulbs are all 12V.

Anyone have an idea where I am dropping 6V? could this be a problem at the switch?

both side brake lights work, just the 3rd CHML does not light up.

Cactus, Nick (Warpig) was definitely who you're thinking of. If you look at his thread you'll see that the white Led's give a brighter more original look. The reds probably have a bright but more hyper red color which I'm sure looks cool. His kits on which I'm sure he made nothing at all had a resistor. It's an easy 2 person job (4 hands is very helpful and makes it go very quickly).

I sent him a pm. I want what Andreas used (white) because they are not overly bright.

I though that when people used the white LED's it washed out the red lens giving it a pink color. When I did mine on a previous 993 I went red and it looked great. YMMV

No, I am saying that the orange and green signs on the central console are decolored with the LEDs I tried ( white)
So I went back to regular

That's what I've always heard. I've only done red so no direct experience. Thanks jo-hans.

Use RED T5's - they are perfect. Don't use white....you will be disappointed.
