There should be a lighting FAQ in the lighting section.

Well....to change the color of the bulb....buy a different color bulb. But I'm pretty sure the laws in all states say turn signals need to be amber. Pretty sure it's a 3156 bulb....just check the owners' manual

The amber lights vary from state to state. The state of Oregon allows you to have white turn lights as long as they are visible from a certian distance.

Well then I guess it's on the OP to find out what the laws are in MA regarding this.
