You guys are lucky enough to have standard flashers in yer vehicles, so you can just go get a Tridon electronic flasher and be done. My WJ has 9 pins on the flasher, and it'* about a $80 part.

It has inputs for Left Turn, Right Turn, and Hazard, 12V input, and 4 outputs, front right, front left, rear right, rear left. If it sees less current draw on any corner, it'll start flashing them quickly.

I first put in LED'* with no load resistors, and they didn't even flash at all. Bummer.

But, another place to get LEDs is www.superbrightleds.com . I got most of my smaller ones there. One thing to look for, for the blinking side markers, make sure they're non-polarized. The nonpolarized LEDs use a bridge rectifier to make sure the voltage polarity is always correct to the LED no matter what way it'* hooked up. Bridge rectifiers are mostly used in AC to DC power supplies, hence, why they work well for this application. If you wanna make sure + is always going to + and - is always going to -, they'll do the trick.

And, on that autolumination site... I bought my HID kit from a "sister" company (i suppose), hid-sin.com. So far, they're doing good, and the kit showed up FAAAAST.

Autolumination also has what looks like 1W Nichia Jupiter 194 LED'*. Yea, man, they're bright, used one in my 3rd brake light.

No. Amber is the only legal color for front turn signals.

Sorry fellas for prolonging this , not a bulb guy, I will go with Haros suggestion blue amber SS my head was a little dense on this one thanks guys.I didnt realize a amber bulb would still make a amber looking corner I thought because I took out the amber reflector it would be clear.

Any color other than amber is going to attract more police attention to you....

On my way in this morning, I seen a little Honda with blue turn signals. Wouldn't have noticed him at all, except that a blue blinking light in the corner of your eye is gonna force you to see what it is. I would be willing to bet real money that any color other than amber will have the same effect. Just something to think about
