If those bulbs are yellow for the corners I'd highly recommend getting the chrome (amber when on) version @ www.autolumination.com. You can see a yellow bulb through the clear corners still.

There'* no lamp monitor on the SE'* that would detect a different resistance in the circuit. I'm not the LED expert either. I got chrome 3157'* just like the 194'* I mentioned above. They look and work great in my opinion.

Alright so ive talked to a friend about painting the inner bulbs and told him I plan on using this:



he told me it will NOT work because the bulb is made of glass and that when it gets hot the paint will melt off, is this true? can anyone who knows about this or has painted theyre bulbs help me? id REALLY appreciate any help

your friend is wrong.....make sure you just MIST the bulbs, i have my front turnsignals painted and they have been fine for 3 years now, i have also did this recently to a Cobalt SS and it was the same result....no problems yet and its been a month at least

My center bulbs have been misted for at least 3 years (gotta figure a couple of Minnesota winters in there). If you get up close, you can see some craking in the paint. But just looking at them, without digging for details, they look fine. And I used DupliColor chrome, too. Different label on my can, but like I said, it'* been a couple of years...
