yup, you can buy silver colored bulbs that either give off an amber color or a blue or a superwhite color... and yes, bulbs are universal, they go by a model #, and therefore you will take out your existing bulb and check on the bulb itself for the number. take it to your local meijer or check on ebay for them.
