Some of the lamps were still working, but as they were most likely going to fail soon anyway all the lamps were replaced with Blue LED's, which shine through with a richer color. Even the Stereo and pointer lamps were replaced so you never have to worry about them. In fact, we weren't happy with the lack of illumination the unidirectional LED's give on these pointers, others just resort to using an incandescent. But as longevity is the whole idea behind the LED upgrade, our tech has come up with a custom way to install a 1-segment LED that illuminates the pointer much better.
