    I'd say to go blue or white (I'm biased, white is my fave). Clear (to me) is just boring. Light also seems to escape easier and you just wont see it against the overlay....stock OR aftermarket.

    I'm trying yet ANOTHER design tweek that wont be ready until next week...i'll let you all know how it goes.

    Really? nothing yet? Weird... They all went out Jan 6th with no more than 3 day delivery.

    I recently had a problem with another set....they still have NOT arrived in over a month!

    Please, Please keep me posted. At least I paid extra for the insurance.

    no worries, i got them today

    when i opened them tho, theres like a white powder on the caps and needles themselves and its a huge pain to wipe, is there any easy way to get the stuff off?

    What the heck have you been doing Sommer? Getting all Scarface'd while packaging needles, lol!?

    Or, did you just send the wrong type of "needle"

    D'oh... That package was supposed to go to Columbia.

    but honestly it must be from the adhesive, send them back and I'll take care of postage and I'll get you another set. If you wanna try to clean them up a bit yourself, try nail polish remover.

    i got them in today!! i need batteries for my camera tho so itll have to wait til tomorrow for pics

    they look pretty amazin in my car and really changes the whole look of the gauge cluster. the only complaint is it seems the tach and speedo needles are a bit shaky. it seems like they get snagged a bit. i tried adjustin them thinkin maybe i pressed them on to far but it didnt seem to completely fix the issue. i think the reason for the tach one rubbin is cuz the needle isnt properly seating in the cap and its scraping the gauge face but the speedo one i cant explain :/

    im def lookin forward to seein them in my car at night tho, theyre gonna look sick!

    Not sure what the shakiness is myself as I've had that problem but with stock needles. I just thought it was because I had taken them on and off so much then I saw a friend's car do the same thing.

    It seems as though (because I got it to stop) it was the cluster not plugged totally in correctly.

    All those were test fit (every set is) before being sent. They should seat as perfect as your stockers. Absolutely NOTHING should be rubbing ANYWHERE!! As for the shaking, it's weird. Some do it, but some don't. 6LE's car has that shake in the oil pressure, but I don't have it at all. You did install the needles correctly, right? White strip facing down?
