newest mod (very small), but got a question...

got my turn signal bulbs installed and i love the way they look!

Linked Image

the high beam and low beams are so expensive that i'd rather get eyelids or somethin else, but i do want to replace the bulbs that i pointed the arrow to.

are those these bulbs? https://www.celicahobby.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=28&products_id=115

i'm just confused because it says on there that they are used for the fog lights. and how much would those bulbs cost somewhere like autozone?

it sounds weird but i love the way they look during the day, when they reflect the blue off the chrome inside the housing. i don't really care about them being bright or anything like that.

Also just so you know the law states that any exterior light that is red and/or blue are illegal (impersonating a law enforcement officer). Its ok if the buld is blue but it is illegal if the light is blue, however, the bulb you pointed to doesn't really show up when your headlights are on, you should be ok but just so you are aware. smile

Darrell, dont worry about the 194 wedge bulb being blue. Your low beams and/or high beams will drown out the blue light. thumbsup

when i had on just the parking lights it was like bright blue, but you're right about the low beams not showing the blue as much. when i use my keyless entry the lights flash blue though. spineyes
