    I've recently done my clocks in my E46 - look good IMO

    are the bulbs in the E36 filament or LED as standard?

    If they're LED already then just swap like for like in terms of rating but choose whatever colour you want.

    They are very fiddly to do if they are surface mount - the LEDs also burn out if heat is applied for too long so get spares.

    This isn't my car, it's how my car see's itself in it's own head

    E36 are filament - So would assume they also require resistors.

    Seems abit expensive for 4 LED's, but they do include the holders (I think !)

    -=EDIT=- If someone knows the dash bulb size, i'll find some cheaper.

    I've going to assume here, but assuming 3mm LED's fit in the holders, then use these:

    http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/cool-white-8000-p-2065.html
    (Only a 60' angle, but if you flatten the top, it'll give a better angle)

    And of course, resistor's:
    http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/single-re...ger-p-140.html

    So, 2x £0.10 + 15x £4.65 = £4.75

    15 LED's should enough to convert the WHOLE dash, plus a couple spare to cover accidents. And 2 packs of resisitor's. All that for £4.75

    Go on eBay, and you get 4 LED's for £4.99

    Pays to shop around
