Solaris Invisibulbs?

Hey anyone use Solaris Invisibulbs for their front and rear turn signals? I only found one post dealing with the use of these and was hoping i can find other people with these. These can be found here - http://www.bimmian.com/82/SOL/

We carry the SOL bulbs and I have been meaning to install them for the rears. I had them on my E46 and they are a solid choice. They have a nice light coating that eliminates the egg yolk but still emits a tremendous amount of light. The front bulbs on the 1er are an odd size which are not available in the SOL bulbs but you can do the sidemarkers or rear bulbs. Give me a call if you have questions about what to choose.

I was considering buying these as well... I was under the impression they DO work for the front signals as well.

me and 1LazyBmw have talked about this before but since our corners have an amber insert will the super white bulbs still be illegal? won't it flash amber stil with the amber insert?

anyone got pics of the rears installed and working?

thats exactly what i wondered! but are cops really that harsh in that they would pull us over JUST for the white turns? I mean i had an integra with clear corners for a few years and i never got pulled over because of the clear corners. If anyone has these bulbs for the rear please post pics!!!!

The DOT allows white or amber front turn signals so this should not be a problem for you in CA. We are in Santa Clara if you want to swing on by and check them out in person.

That's news to me too, we've sold the SOL bulbs for 2-3 years now and never had an issue with the light output.
