The M7 (Size 1156) is correct for the 2000-UP Toyota Celica turn signal... I know this sounds crazy, but all 1156 bulbs, wherever you buy them from, are the same shape - they need to be modified for installation into the 2000-up Celica.

https://www.celicahobby.com/forums/...ights-turn-signals-1156-m7-bulb-faq.html

Install is simple, just choose what connector on the bulb that you do not want, and use a nail clipper to clip that "nub" off (or using a cement wall or curb to rub it off also works well). Your bulbs will then fit correctly

This is the same technique that everyone uses to install aftermarket 1156/M7 bulbs.

Just look at your original bulb when you take it out.

Your original bulb will look exactly how I've described above - one of the nubs on either side will be OFF. By looking at the stock lighting, it will be quite obvious what needs to be done.

This is a simple install. Its a "1" on a scale between 1 and 10, 10 being most difficult.

err these bulbs are blue in color, but shine white correct? I want to replace my turn signals since that yellow bulb color throws off the nice clear look, but white turn signals are illegal in CA from what I remember...what should I do? I also don't really like that blue bulb look...Any suggestions?

What are you looking for? If you can't have white signals and don't like the blue bulb look, then Mtec isn't for you. I don't know what you want then.

turn signals are from POLARG...

if you are looking for some alternatives, check your local Autozone/Pepboys... you can find white, blue, green, orange, red...etc

I have a set of APC "Reds" installed someplace in my car (atleast I found the package to them in my car this afternoon rofl )

i like the blue bulbs...they shine white but the blue bulbs (when not on) reflects some of the color inside the headlights...it looks neat!!

And i am assuming that if i buy the blue bulbs to replace my turning signals, that either autozone, pep boys, or car toys will install them for me? I fear i might mess up. Anyone have an idea as to how much it may cost and where i can get it installed?

it is practically impossible to mess this up, it took me like 2 minutes and i did it at 11 o ' clock at night with no flashlight, very easy install. It wouldnt be worth paying somebody to install them
