Im sure someone here has prolly done this and i just havnt seen it...but..

just put in the bulbs(the 9006ST not the ultras, stupid me didnt pay attention.and didnt wana go back to return them for the ultras)yes i know you've all put thoes in..but thats not my point of the post
THIS is the point note that i also replaced the inside amber parking/turn signals with a white bulb..although the silverstars make them almost look like a amber bulb(look at my tag and you can see them with the ambers in it) you can really tell they are white when the turn signal is on though.

heres a more toned down picture


i know its prolly illegal..but..i think it looks better then the ambers..and its not as noticable as puttin a blue bulb or something in there..

If you want the clear look while still staying amber, you can either lightly mist your stock bulbs with silver paint or buy bulbs with a mirrored finish that are amber while on.

i used clear/white turn signals briefly on my last car, and then i realized that they were nearly impossible to see on a bright sunny day, i almost got hit a couple times, so i put ambers back in

Just for reference...bulbs off:

Bulbs on:


My original bulbs were pretty old so I decided to get brand new ones instead of painting them:
