The front turn signals on these cars are an odd fit that is not available in aftermarket form just yet. The ones that come on the car from the factory have a slight silver coating on them to prevent the amber reflection when they are off but they still blink in amber.

Working on it for you guys, no confirmed finish date or cost as we need to finalize the mold and design first.

Keep us updated. I have no problem paying whatever it is to get white turn signals.

I Replace mines with crome bulbs from www.xenonmods.com.

they are around $12.00 per pair; and I am very happy with the result.
No more amber reflection.
I replace front and rear turn signals and the side markers over the fenders.

I Replace mines with the 7506 Xenon Bluish White Bulb. look so much nicer than the orange look.
take a look at the link below for the color.

I dunno is it even worth bothering replacing the front indicator bulbs? The corners on US cars have big orange reflectors anyway so it kind of defeats the purpose...

To me, I think its worth it. Because, you won't see the orange reflector at night anyways.
you want the car to look nice when driving at night.

At night your headlights are on... and when your headlights are on, the corners bulbs are on "low mode" so it'll still show up orange unless you plan on using pure white bulbs...

So, your turn signals are white correct? Can you take a couple pictures for us? If so, props, the 1 will look much better with white blinkers.

Nice, that looks much better then stock. Just making sure, when you turn your blinker on it blinks the same color of your new bulbs right? Not orange, it blinks white/blue?

i don't remember where i got them from.. i think ebay, not really sure. the bulb is a 7507 , but i bought the 7506 instead. There will be an offset in the pins, you wont be able to fit it in. so, you have to shave off one side to make it fit correctly.
