Front Turn signal bulb just went out. Which bulbs do you have?

Well front drivers side turn signal was flashing 3x faster then normal and now its out with bulb out warning. I want to go all LED on exterior/interior so I have been trying to research correct bulb size, and which product to choose in each size. I still haven't concluded any thing but I need to order some thing quick. Here is what I know about the Front turn signal bulbs Sylvania list them as:
2825, 7528.

Cross referencing size on They say use there WLED
I'm just overwhelmed by the sizes and selection to pick one.

Then there are the bulbs from They have a direct like for the 2825 size, but there are TONS of different bulbs and I don't know which fit, or would be Ideal. Any input?

Hi there,

Your car's front turn signals are either an 1156 or 7507. To make sure, take out the stock bulb and look at the metal pin offset on the base of the bulb. If they are 180 offset, then you have 1156, if they are 150 offset then you have 7507. The sidemarkers are 194 and the rear bulbs are 1156.

We offer LED replacement bulbs with the correct resistors for the front and rear turn signals to prevent the bulb out warning. We also back them by a full lifetime warranty and include full installation instructions. Here is the product page for more info:

Front or Rear V2 LED Turn Signal Bulbs

LED V2 Sidemarker Bulbs (Do not require resistors)

Hope that answers your questions, let me know if you have any others!

I love the instant on/instant off of the LEDs but I just don't like the random flickering that they do when the LCM is doing the bulb test at start up. Kind of bugs me. Not sure if I'm going to clear mine out with either clear LED or Solaris Invisibulbs.
