Anyone find a T20 that's not amber until it lights, for the turn signal, to get rid of the fried egg look?

The factory replacement fog light bulbs are outrageous.

GELOverland found a replacement option for those. I put these in my fogs after one of my "ultra long lasting" factory ones bit the dust. There's an extra tab that needs trimmed down - that's it. They look great... except make my cheap headlights look tuuuuuuuuuuurrible.

If you do a search for clear amber T20 bulb you can find some. They are a bit pricey though. I had some "clear to amber" silverstars that I used in another vehicle but they were not T20's, but I assume its only a matter of time until they start making them

drballard33, yeah, I've found some on e-bay from other countries in chrome. I'll wait until they get a bit more popular I guess.

Thanks.
The 3157 bulbs are about $7 for a 2 pack at NAPA, not that I checked, but apparently that guy was quoted over $48 each from the dealer!
I was trying to get the Putco LED, their website said NAPA is a distributor, but they didn't have any in stock. Still, they could order a pair of LED's for around $40, much cheaper than the dealer for 1 incandescent.
They couldn't give a color temperature for the lamp though, I really want to be around 4000k, I don't want the ugly bluish color that makes people flash their high beams at you...
I updated the list though, to include what GELOverland used.

The ebay vendor in GELs thread was a quick shipper and helpful when I called him. I can take a picture tonight if you'd like. They are definitely a white light. Given, my picture will show you how it looks compared to the lame ole halogen standards!
