I ordered the highest quality which was 74 HP3, and when they came in I thought they were the wrong ones because they didnt look like bulbs. If you choose this route, please know that the HP3 fits the same way as the bulb, it just looks way different. By the way, I have a 02 WRX so if anyone is looking for the exact size of the bulb it is 74. The websites wont show replacement bulbs for the instrument gauges, but it is the same size as the specifications for the ash tray bulb. Hit me up if you have any questions.
Ordering the 74 HP3 for the cluster now. But you're saying the "bulb" size is different for the HVAC controls? What would I need to purchase for that? I was under the impression that the HVAC controls were also a size 74 bulb.
