Is There A Special Type Of Bulb For Clearcorners That Changes...

I plan to get clearcorners for my car. I've heard about bulbs that change from clear during the day to amber at night. Is there such thing? confused

you're thinking of the bulbs that are dipped in chrome.

when their off, it looks clear, when their on the amber light passes through


i'm not sure where to get them though.

it is legal to drive with white clear corner lights, cars such as VW's have white instead of amber.

the chrome dipped bulbs were for the turn signals.

I thought it was illegal to have clear bulbs in the clearcorners. It says in the CelicaStore to keep it legal it comes with orange bulbs. But for $5 extra you can get super white.

nope... white is legal (in CA anyways) cars come with it stock

the superwhite bulbs look blue in the day time and have a blueish tint at night ... thats why people may get pulled over.

yup...

According to CALIFORNIA Highway Patrol (CHP)

Incorrect color of turn signal. It must be white or yellow/amber to the front, red or yellow to the rear (24953 Violation Code).

Red lights to the front. They are illegal except on emergency vehicles (24003 Violation Code).

Illegal color of side marker lights. If present, must be white or yellow/amber in the front and red in the rear (25106, 24003 Violation Codes).

So white should be okay then. I guess I'll get a set of the amber and white bulbs just in case.

as long as your Celica doesn't look like a law enforcement or emergency vehicle at night, you should be just fine thumbsup
