Front corners are an 1156 bulb or 1157? 1157 makes sense since i think the bulb in the corners is a dual filament (parking light and blinks brighter for the turn signal), 1156 is only a single filament. I am replacing the corners with clear smoked, and I need to buy those chrome bulbs that flash amber, don't want to see any amber in my corners but need to confirm if its 1156 or 1157.

No I'm getting chrome painted bulbs that look chrome in the housing but flash amber. I don't want any other color bulbs, I want it to flash amber or yellow as those colors give the greatest visibility to other drivers. Also I hate the look of turn signals that flash white.

+1 to that...


for those that use a white bulb in white turn signals:
you might as well not use them at all during the day...cuz it cant be seen anyways...
flashing white lite during the day?? wut r you guys thinking???
theres a good reason why yellow or red was designated as turn signal colors...and its not so that the cars rearend would look ugly...
