Default Radio Repair Update

I was having problems with burned out backlights in the buttons and in the display of my BOSE system radio. I posted a question about it here a few weeks ago, and someone replied that Corvette Radios (www.corvetteradios.com) could fix the problem cheap. I sent my radio down to them in Louisiana...and I'm happy to report that they did the job just fine. Total cost was about $100, including shipping. It took about 2 weeks from shipping the radio to them to getting it back. They replaced all of the lights in the unit, so hopefully I'll be good to go for a few more years.

Jim

I think someone posted a place to actually buy the lights (dont remember now?). They were expensive like 16 a piece and worse case you would need 3 but still has to be cheaper than 100 bucks. However if your not into doing these things yourself this sounds like a great alternative.

Our mechanic said it was quite common to get that, maybe INTENSE should start carrying those bulbs
