I'm about to install my rear and front corners however I have yet to buy the bulbs. What types are the best bulbs to get for the blinkers? I want them to be amber but not look amber.

Look forward to any suggestions.

To my knowledge that is the only big company that supplies clear bulbs that blink orange. I'd go for them... I just use clear blue ones to match the head lights.

they should come with bulbs in them, but if you want them to look silver but blink orange you can just spray paint the front of the bulbs silver, i did and it works fine.

Several companies offer silver bulbs that blink amber.

I'd recommend the Silvervisions by Phillips. Most people go through powerbulbs.com out of England -

http://www.powerbulbs.co.uk/

Some people like the bulbs from Bimmian, although I've read on multiple occasions that they aren't as bright as the Silvervisions

http://www.bimmian.com/

Some people just spray them..........
