Use regular bulbs, not LEDs for panel lamps.
The reasons are:

1) Unregulated LEDs in a car won't last very long at all.
2) The colours don't work the same way.

Even with white LEDs the colours are no good because the incandescent bulbs has a continuous spectrum (think rainbow) but an LED only has a few specific colours.
In particular never use coloured LEDs, the red / green parts will be black.

The panel illumination are probably T10 wedge lamps, no idea about the others.
