I just purchase new bulb to upgrade my ride

Im planning to get HID so im not changing the low beam yet but i got myself:

a set of PIAA Intense white 9005 for the DRL/High beam
a set of Nokya Hyper Yellow 9006 for the fog light
a set of PIAA Super white wedge bulb LED for the licence plate light (lexus style)

Im also gonna buy what a put on my other car for the front turn signal, set of Silverstar 3457A, they appear to be bluyish purplish colors but when lighted they are legal amber colors

maybe also the same for the rear or the mirror one, they are all chrome but light amber so they will no longer be a orange glow throuht the clear lens

when i will get the HID (4300 or 5000k, not sure yet) it will be complete and sick :D

i will post some picture tonight when it gonna be dark enough to see well

EDIT: driver side for canadian road :)

The yellows give it just the rite touch! I just upgraded mine. Used Hella 9005 DRL, Hella H11 lows and the silverstars for signals. Couldn't find any "cool" bulbs for the rear signals. any ideas??

I also got the silverstar for the signal, already using it also on my svt

i want to get rid of the yellow/amber colors in the taillight, but so far im also looking with no success, the bulb number sound weird.

As for the licence plate LED they really worth it, give the car a Lexus feel :D

The 2008 manual says the front signals are 3457, but when I ordered a pair of 3457's, the base was flat and the socket in the car is round....?

Did I miss something? I've seen a few of you say that you have changed your front turns, so where did you find 3457's with round bases?
