    whatever bulb will fit... but those are also your blinkers. So i suggest not changing the color.

    White or amber are the only colors allowed in the front here in Iowa. I would imagine that it is a fed DOT law also.

    I hate the amber DTRL/turn signals. For my car I can buy "stealth" bulbs that look clear until you use them then glow yellow. Just a better look IMO

    I wouldn't necessarily change the color of the amber lights but perhaps you could get the "Phantom" (Silver-off Amber) Signal Lights instead.

    From the outside and from a distance, the "Phantom" signal lights will blend into your headlights but when you make a turn/ signal...it'll light up as an amber color. Deceptive yet DOT approved.

    Contact csjumper2003...he has led turn signals. They're switchbacks white while running and amber when you flip the turn signal...(like my pic below)
