I'm wondering if anyone has LED's for their turn signals instead of clear bulbs. I was either going to go with white ones or blue ones..
problem with the blue ones is that there is that orange plastic thingy on corners.. whaddya'll think?

btw, I LOVE THIS SITE ALREADY.. soo much more interesting information.. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

If I recall properly, the LEDs don't put out much light. I think someone on a-cl tried them in the fogs and they weren't more than a pinpoint of light.

Plus you'd have to wire in a resistor since the current draw is so small that the car thinks that the bulb is burnt out, making your turn signals inside the console hyper-blink. Bobatimez has some LED rear blinkers (1156) so he would probably be the best person to talk about the subject.

Hyperblinking is fine with me =D hehe.. i hope it's not too bad though.
btw, the one's i'm looking at have 10 small LED's.. it should be pretty bright. I could be wrong however. If anyone else is interested, I've seen them going dutch auction on Ebay..and i'll give you the link.

I personally liked the hyperblinking when I got my first car, one of my first mods too. But after a few months, and driving at night. The hyperblinking will really get to you. It got on my nerves, Now I barely use my blinkers because of it. :)

Please post link, cause from what I recall, I've only see Red ones for sale.
