Will these work in my dash?

As some of you may know from another post, me and Kris painted my gauges to light up blue instead of ugly green. The blue turned out great but the problem is that the lights behind the gauges are stock and give off a yellowish tint that turns my numbers blue-green. I saw these lights on ebay and thought they may work.....my question is if they are any good and if they will fit and give me a bright white light. Ive found the brighter the light the more blue they are...i held it up to my dome light lol. Please only post if you want to help, no smart comments like some do, we dont need that on the site. Sorry if this is a dumb question but yeh. Thanks in advance.

They will work better than your stock bulbs but i'd go with LED's... They are very bright and last longest. I went with bright white super flux LED's from Varad Vision in my dash. These are plug and play and have 3 small LED'd per bulb. I chose these for a wider ray of light to even out the shady areas. Vard Vision LED's are found localy here at stereo shops but you can chech their website ... http://www.varad.com
