Hey guys isnt there a way that you can take a normal amber turn signal and paint it with a paint to make it look sliver but still flash amber? of so what kind of paint? where do i get it and how much does it cost? Also anyone do this before? Thanks for your time!
so silver spray paint does it? Nice im thinking i need to go do that... with the new clear corners and all! SO just typical silver spray paint no special kind? Also do i want to avoid hitting anything but the bulb? Like i should try not to hit the metal part that screws in right? What type of bulbs do bmws use for their front turn signals?
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.

I do that to my bulbs. Make sure you get good bulbs though, as on the cheaper ones the amber will eventually come off. Also make sure you use a light coat, or esle it will flake off from the heat as well.

3 things here. the first one is that spray painting your bulbs will actually make them very dull and not too attractive.
2- you can get filiment jackets that will (with heat) mold to the bulb and will actually be brighter than painting them (this is what they do to those coloured bulbs you buy already)
3- leave them amber, IMO any other colour doesnt look german to me.
