Unfortunately the blue tint has to do with the color of the bulb itself. The reason that bulb appears blue is because it has a blue tint on it to blink in a blue/white. There is no way to achieve that reflection without the blue tint which means it would blink in white, not amber.

I got a ticket 3 years ago for having purpleish (they werent suppose to be purple, got a mixed up batch of LED corners) corners in the front, i had them on for about a year before getting a ticket, got a ticket, kept them on, eventually got 6000k matching LED corners, and its been 3 years no issues from cops what so ever. It all depends where you live I guess and if the cops want to be pricks

You have a couple of options for a white bulb:

V2 LED Turn Signal Bulbs for Front or Rear



Bimmian Solaris Invisibulbs

I got 4 pair of APC super white bulbs off of ebay. Just look up 1156 super white bulbs. They have that white/bluish tint that you are looking for.

No problems at all thus far

Just in case, I have the amber LED's so I can switch em out and get the ticket signed off, or just pay it, who cares, totaly worth it IMO

Don't be scurred of the cops, just don't carry any drugs with you and you should be fine lol
