I did that a long time ago. One of the cheapest and easiest mods that makes a car look better.

No, they still light up a fairly decent shade of orange. More like a peach color.

mine look a little dim for some reason. Not bright like smellbird'*. I'll have to get a picture. anyone else have that problem? Maybe I need to get the silverstar version. So is 2057 the swap for the OEM 3157?

3157s are in the 96-99 lights
2057s are in the 92-95 lights

thanks zzzzeke.

is the silverstar version brighter than the OEM? They seem to be that way with the other bulbs they sell.
