LED for front turn signal?

I am sick and tired of that awful orange buld on the front for my turn signal. Is there an LED available to replace that?

I'm sure there is, but if you do change them out, you'll have that ricer hyper-blinking because the LEDs draw less amperage than regular bulbs and thinks you have a bulb out and thus for the hyper-blinking.

You'll need some resistance going to the bulb. Also, you can only have orange or white there... (I believe that's the only two colors)

I'm sure the OP is just speaking of the bulb color when off(I think). So an LED would look white when off. As far as actual color. It's okay if it's white when it's on steady, but for actual turn signals, they legally have to be amber when blinking, I believe. They do have switchback LED's which if you had DRL's they would be white when steady on but blink amber with turn signals.

Running white 3127 bulbs (non-LED) in mine, the lens is slightly yellow anyway so it comes off as a egg white color. My state requires orange OR white front signals, so I'm in the "clear" (haha) in any case. Nice compromise for me because like you I hated the orange look all the time.

If you just want to get rid of the orange color then use a chrome bulb so you dont have to change anything. The chrome bulb you cannot see until it lights up. Or just use the white LED's. Check with your inspection station in your state. I'm not required to run orange either. I run white front and back in my Lexus.

Do whati I did and go buy a rattle can of high temp silver engine paint and spray a light coat over the bulb. This will eliminate the egg yolk look but still let the bulb function and emit plenty of light. I did this mod 6 months ago. You'd never know by the light output of all 4 blinkers that they had a light coat of silver engine paint on them. Now my sterling are still orange but don't have that egg yolk look when off. I do this to all my lights on my vehicles (trucks and motorcycles). Cheap simple fix if your only interested in getting rid of egg yolk effect.
