Default after clearing your corners

in your 00+ bonnies after clearing your corner lenses did you notice how much the light diffuser actually does? my blinker is like a fricken spotlight on cars and signs.. its rather stupid looking actually when i am lighting up signs on stoplights when i am 20 cars back

try using a standard amber bulb, i think that much of it is due to teh fact that the silverstars are brighter and a slightly different color

Both my car and truck do that all the time. The truck hasn't had any different lights in it.

On my car it just seems to push the light straight out and brighter instead of spreading the spectrum across the diffuser.

Yep, I'm bouncing amber off of everything now. I'm sure people have no doubt which way I'm turning. I like it.
