2000 996 C4 guage cluster bulbs?

I am in the process of swapping a 2000 996 gauge cluster from a C4 into my 99 Boxster. Yes I know the gas gauge will be off. I want to replace the bulbs that light up the gauges there is one out in the tach and if I replace one I might as well replace them all. the faces are a silver and lightbulbs are amber and want to keep it that way. Can someone point me as to where I can find quality replacement bulbs at a reasonable price. I have only been able to find clear bulbs.

Hmmm, is it a direct plug-in, except for the gas gauge?
How is that fixed?

So you gain a voltmeter and Oil pressure?

Worthwhile additions.

Try Pelican?

The "clear" bulbs are amber.
(The "amber" bulbs in our clusters are just standard clear filament bulbs)

Thanks Particlewave, best news today! Going to install the C4 cluster and live with the gas gauge thing.
