It's the needles that are the biggest pain. I am pretty sure I am going to break them the fawk off.

Hey guys,

I do full custom led lighting on all IS cars if you're not comfortable doing it yourself!

Many colors available for backlighting and all needles.

Default Fix my LEDs please

I took my 06 IS250 to the dealership for maintenance and they quoted me 1500 for a new cluster, I found clusters on sale used for 150.
Was hoping I could send you the cluster (remove it myself) and you could replace the LEDs for me. The rpm is burned out and the speedo is starting to burn out partly.
Would you do this for $100? (Upgraded LEDs)
Would send to you fed ex. Need back fairly soon as the car will be parked until I can replace the part.
Let me know.
Email me at
mauricioepinto@hotmail.com
Thanks!
Mauricio

Sorry for bringing this up from the dead, but Chi123 do you have any pics of the install process I can't view the old ones anymore, my needle for the RPM burned out and I want to attempt to do this myself.

Sorry guys, don't know why the images are no longer showing up. I don't have them saved on my computer either since this was a long time ago.
