    silver94tt, your other option is to dim down Stu's cluster more. I added resistance to the HVAC lights to get them as dim as possible. This still equates to about the same brightness as stock. I think you can do the same to the cluster. I like a dim dashboard, so that it doesn't affect my night vision. Stu's LED conversions are fantastic, but they do turn out significantly brighter than stock.

    @bitshftr, I don't think i have the a separate dimmer to dim down Stu's cluster. I did not pay for the extra dimmer option (did not know that was an option)

    @Stu, my only option to dim down the cluster is by using the factory dimmer correct? Although I have no issue using the factory dimmer to dim it down to a very comfort level.

    My separate dimmer is basically a second OEM dimmer that dims *only* the white. The OEM dimmer just dims the needles. So in essence you can "blend" them to your liking. There is small cost of $25 fro this. I just keep forgetting to offer it. It is
    controlled by a small remove so it is wireless. IMO I am happy just to use the OEM dimmer really....Only cool feature with the dimmer is you can turn off the white all together and run just on the red needle glow

    Thanks Stu for the clarification. I am happy with just the factory dimmer. I can still dimmed it down to a comfort level at night.
