Try here. http://www.partsexpress.com/  I got them from there a while back.
Should still have them. Try search for lamp covers or indicator bulbs. They
work great.

I swapped the bulbs in my seat heater switches this past weekend. As
prepared as I was, thanks to write-ups on urS4.com, I was not prepared for
the fact that my 93 urS4 used red bulbs vs. the clear that I had purchased.
NOTE to self: read all of the discussion before you being your project.

Since a return trip to the parts store was not an option, I grabbed a bottle
of the wife's finger nail polish. Upon installation, everything looked
great. A very OEM red look....at least at first. Apparently the bulbs are
hot enough to cook the nail polish. After about 2 hrs the color faded until
what appears now is a dull faint pink.

So its back to the drawing board... anyone want to share how they made their
clear bulbs glow red? If there really such a thing as a bulb condom, where
do I find them---and what are they really called? If you used red paint of
some sort, what was it?

Thanks in advance.
