Thumbs down LED Turn signals from Jlevi, red?

OK - So I just installed this and noticed the amber color does not match the rest of my OEM LEDs (side marker and tails). They are more like a fading red color. The solaris stealth bulbs I had before were a perfect match but I went with LED to match the instant blink of my other turn light components.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can get a set that ACTUALLY matches? I read autolumination has a good matching set but I want to read about other's experiences and what versions actually match.

Here's some pics for reference: (only the drivers side installed at the time)

it'd be hard for an LED bulb to emit the exact same color as the amber OEM bulb. To be honest I think it looks pretty good.

Agreed. It does look pretty good. Don't sweat it. Welcome to the aftermarket.

My GF said they look kinda off. When they are not blinking, they also look pretty dim since they get less power. I still have mixed feelings here. There must be something that matches better and has more light output.
