Where did everyone get their amber bulbs for turn signals in front and rear. I went to every auto store and looked at BMP and bavauto, bavauto has front but I don't see the rear ones. I plan on painting them silver so I want to do a couple sets. If you could find a place or website that would be great, thank you.

Most DOTs require your turn signal to blink yellow. So with clear corners and stock bulbs it would blink white. So to keep the police happy you've got to put amber colored bulbs in so that the corners still blink yellow. They also make blue ones that blink yellow, but it's cheaper to get amber ones and mist them with silver paint.

exactly paint them with alight coat at first to get the bulb partly painted but with lots of orange still showing! then put in a few more coats until no oragen is shown but make sure you dont put to much or you wont see them blinking , test it out on old bulbs! roughing up the bulbs with fine sand paper is a good idea too so paint stays better! or you can buy them for 15$ off ebay but for 15$ you can make about 50 sets of you own!
