Finished front turn signal bulb swap, including white/amber leds

Outtermost (sidemarkers) are type 194 led in amber

Outside bulbs are type 194 led in white, for running lights

Inside bulbs are type 3157 dual circuit white/amber. White for running lights switches to amber for turn signal.






These bulbs are pretty good leds for the conversion, because the light up the entire reflector pretty well... plus the white ones put out ALOT of forward light... i can pretty much park at night with just the running lights... which makes my neighbor happy because no headlights shining thru her window.


Installing HID's in stock housings is bad. Here is why.

Step 1: Take the old ones out
Step 2: Put the new ones in.
