So two questions:

Has anyone had those red bulb "condoms" on for a long time. Say a few years? I noticed someone mentioned they fade to orange with time. Can we get a little vote going on here to see how long you had them for and if they faded?

Also, sounds like double bagging them makes red too dark. Has anyone tried using 2.3watt bulbs (#2723) for key ring and HVAC and not just the factory boost gauge? Also, I'm wondering why you guys are double bagging those in the first place? Is it too bright, too orange with only a single "condom"?

The reason I'm asking all thise is because I want to get this right the first time and have all the lights match the STi gauge cluster as closely as possible. Also, I would like to know how many extra wattage bulbs to get.

Thanks ALL for any input! Really appreciate it!
