I just got my 194 Wedge Matrix LEDs in yesterday and all I can say is OMG are they better than the inverted cone LEDs. My gauges on the pillar are lit with a light in the back (supposed to be an incand. 194) and the light scatters around to the front to light it (Autometer Ultra-light series gauges). Anyway, I had some trouble seeing them at night so I thought I'd give these a try. They work... It looks like I have neon lights in there now. They aren't cheap ($6.99 a bulb), but they do work great and I recommend them.

I'll take a picture tonight after dark. I didn't have my camera with me last night (and I didn't sleep at home)

thanks for the heads up Mike, its been a while since I have been to that site, those look very good. I have the same issue with the autometer gauge lighting not reaching the front.
Gonna order them for sure

Wow those look great! I'm gonna have to check those out! I would really like some brighter bulbs to replace my inverted cone LED's behind my gauges - they're not as bright as I'd like. Please post pics soon so I can actually see what they look like in action!

Sorry guys, I sucked last night... I didn't drive anywhere after dark, so the thought never crossed my mind to take a picture. I PROMISE I'll take a picture tonight.

I don't know about you XD2 guys, but the 01-03 gauges had 74 and 194 bulbs. You'll still need inveted lense 74 bulbs, I don't think that those are available in a Matrix. The 194 Matrix bulbs should overpower any dark spots though.

Yeah, I think the matrix bulbs will do the trick. And the 74's do cover all of the small gauges as well as the ODO. I will order these tonight, so hopefully by sometime next week, we'll know what's up. And yes hyunelan, the XD2's still use the 74's. We'll see.

I ordered them tonight. I can't wait to see what they look like.

Ok, I promised, and here is a picture of the Wedge Matrix bulbs lighting my A-pillar gauges. There is one bulb in each gauge (note that the speedo/tach is indiglo, I only have the matrix bulbs in the A pillar). Also, sorry for the blurry-ness, but my camera doesn't like to take pictures in the dark without a flash.
