    If you have a TID display (two line display) then you need the twist in bulbs like these... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-x-Vectra...item3a65e63b2a

    But if you have a GID then they take SMD's like the rest of the car... And you dont change the colour on a CID as this is colour already...

    Is this what your having issues with?

    always get confused with TID GID CID thingy. never quite understood how to tell the difference!

    Mine has clear glass with a plastic backing to it, the glass is connected with a ribbon cable for power. Does that make any sense.??
