Front Turn Signal Question

I recently bought a pair of predator chromium headlights for my 00 323i, and I'm very happy with them. I have clear covers for the front turn signals, but the issue is that the bulbs within them are an amber color. Since the turn signals light when the headlights are on, it takes away from the look. Does anyone know where to find true clear bulbs for these turn signals? Both google search and board search were inconclusive.

When you bought clears, it came with the amber bulbs, correct? Replace that bulb with your stock bulb, which is not white, but its a little yellow, and see if you prefer that, rather than spending extra money on bulbs.

the clear bulbs will look yellow, the white led's will probably throw a code but go to pep boys or other local parts store and just look to see what they have. whatever bulb u get will not fit perfect.. i dont think. all of the ones ive tried ive had to file down one of the little bump like things on the side.

You have a couple options as far as replacement bulbs go, LED Turn Signals or mirror coated amber bulbs.

The LEDs are completely white when off and blink in your choice of xenon white or amber. Our Stealth Mirror Coated bulbs are amber bulbs that have a mirror coating to get rid of the egg yolk amber effect. Here are the product pages for more info:
