Bulbs in Clears

I am putting clears on my car and I am wondering if you need to replace the bulbs when you apply the clears. Also, wouldnt the standard bulbs look bad considering they would be amber. A link to a affordable set would be helpful. Thanks

You don't need to replace the bulbs but most prefer to so as to get rid of the egg yolk effect created by placing an amber bulb in a clear housing.

One option is a set of our LED bulbs which are completely white when off and blink in your choice of amber or xenon white.
