    The 921 (18 Watt) and 922 bulbs (12W) plug right in. You should be able to find them in both white and amber. I started with the 922 in white and then switched to the 922 in amber. I have stock clear/amber corner plastic.

    It should not. I and others have been running the 921 and 922 bulbs for a long time. You will feel the corner lens get warm from the increased heat, but I have not had a problem with fuses blowing or overheating the plastic.

    Going to the 18W bulbs (instead of the stock 5W) only draws about 1 Amp more for each corner.
