Hey all, I recently replaced the guage lights in my P10 from the standard white to red. When I replaced them, I didn't put the blue condoms from the stock bulbs onto the new red ones. What do they do? Should I put them on the new bulbs or will they just burn up my guages from inside? ;)

Oh, also on a side note, what size bulb fits in the ignition? I know its hella small, but I know someone out there has changed theirs to match their color scheme. Anyone???

They make the light have a little blue tinge to them, which is closer to white. If the stock bulbs didn't have them it, the guages would have a slight yellow tinge to them.

The surface of the bulb gets pretty hot and the blue "condoms" are there to absorb the heat so your instrument pannel will not get excessively hot.
