Talking PICS OF "silvervision" type BULBS BUT THESE BLINK RED/HYPERWHITE/AMBER!

I know many of you have been waiting for me to post pics but I finally got these in yesterday. The bulbs come in 1156 sizes which are perfect for BMW corners in the front and back. These also fit Audi's with the Euro Headlamps! (the clear LED model in the middle blink hyperwhite and is a 3157 model for factory Audi Headlight corners. Normally when off, the bulbs have a mirror finish but this picture was taken in direct sunlight so you can see the slight hue. Notice the blue bulb on the left side and the red one on the right.

For those of you who get harassed by cops for blue bulbs, these are PERFECT! When off, they look totally clear and have no blueish tint. If you are like me and live in an area where cops don't like it, then get these bulbs. You still can have these blink hyperwhite when on if you like. Or be a bit different and have the back turn signals blink red! Since red lights are totally legal for the rear of the car (Just look at S4's), you can put these in and make your BMW stand out a bit.
The Red light these bulbs give off is a very intense red that exactly matches your taillights tint.

*On a sidenote, I was heading to the gym last night with my new bulbs and sure enough a police car was right behind me (we live near the police station in Milpitas) Anyways, I quickly signal to change lanes to allow the officer to pass and he went right by me....whew, a sign of relief! I guess my new red turn signal bulbs are okay! With my old hyperwhite ones, it makes the car stand out and tends to blind people at night.

Only downfall to these bulbs are the price. They cost $25 each but hey, you get what you pay for. Just to clear things up, you must run either hyperwhite or amber color up front and on the sidemarkers which are 194 bulbs. The rear is more optional and you can run either the hyperwhite/amber/red depending on what you prefer.

If you want these bulbs, drop me an e-mail and I will tell you what the total price would be. I only have a limited quantity so let me know ASAP. Or AIM me at "s4playko"

later,
rick

$25 EACH?

That's over a $100 for a set and shipping...

I'd rather use that cash on a different mod.

They look kewl but I think regular amber bulbs painted silver look just fine.

If you live in CA, you're allowed to have white/amber in front, amber in the sidemarkers, and amber/red in the back. Just an FYI.

Every time I've been pulled over - farther up the Peninsula, between RWC and Belmont - I have signalled at the start and pulling away, and no cop has said anything about my Polarg M9s... I routinely notice people behind me covering their eyes though from the blinding light

Don't know the brand since my buddy got a big box of them

for me while he was overseas but they do look awesome whether they are on or off.

When on, the red is a brilliant red similiar to the lighting you would get if you had a red lense! But when off, they are unnoticeable.

As stated before I am opening up a Euro Tuning shop called The Euro Boutique in Fremont very soon.

Contact me if you want installation work done.

To Eric 330i, that's exactly the setup I have on my M3 and it looks sweet and different!

And Karl is correct about the colors that are legal....read my first post about the cop story behind me...no hassle at all. With the M9's from Polarg, they do look nice but attract too much attention to your car not to mention blind the guy behind. Don't believe me, try it yourself and walk behind the car!

later,
rick
