RE: COUPE QUATTRO INSTRUMENT PANEL BULBS - AGAIN!!
Well I tried to reply to this one earlier but It appears that my
response was bounced..so here goes.
I just bought another couple of these with the OSRAM P/N# 2721MF. The
MF includes the base which you are describing. I paid 1.65/ea for them
at a local autoparts store the dealer wanted 5.68/ea.
