I just had the unpleasant experience with Solaris bulbs melting and completely ruining both of my clear corners and was referred to autolumination.com. They seem to have a great variety of stuff from interior bulbs to LED's for the exterior. Right now I am looking at the 7507 BAU15sXenon Super white towards the bottom of this page ----> http://autolumination.com/1156_1157.htm. Has anyone used these, or any other bulbs from this company? I plan on painting these myself.

Dude, just paint the bulbs that come with the clears. When I ordered clears from Bavauto, they came with orange/yellow bulbs. I just spray painted them, and it works great.

Here is a link to a thread concerning this (you can tell by the date of the thread that it works, as I've had no problems since)......{CLICK HERE}

I have done that with my rear lights. I used aluminum high temperature ceramic paint on the stock amber bulbs and left a strip and 2 circles unpainted so the light could escape. However for the front corners I do not want amber. I am looking for a xenon blueish color to match my headlights and Halos. The bulbs at autoilumination were so cheap that I went ahead and ordered several sets. I will report back how they work out~

side markers not meant for high temp/brighness and in most states legaly should illuminate amber.

The solaris bulbs for the side markers are different and don't seem to be high temperature like the front/rear ones. Even if they were, I think it would be ok considering that they are only on while the blinker is on - same for the rear. I decided to keep these on the side markers. Illegal or not, I really like the look. The solaris bulbs could still be used on the rear blinkers since they are not constantly on as well, but for safety reasons I decided not to. During the day you cannot see them at all.

I just recieved the "Xenon Super White" bulbs as well as the "Silver Chrome" bulbs. Both appear to be basically the same bulb, but with the Silver Chrome being coated with chrome paint. The coated ones are as dim as the Solaris bulbs, but don't seem to burn as hot. The super white bulbs are great! They seem to be much brighter without the coating and are bright enough to use during the day. I am going to see how they work with a homemade paint job with aluminum paint.
