Anyone replacing front directionals with Philips Silver Vision or similar?

Just wondering if anyone is planning on getting rid of the "egg yolk" look and replacing the front signals with Philips Silver Vision or something similar.

I am thinking about getting a pair. Anyone have any experience with them?

I bought them but I don't have my car yet. They're sitting on my toolbox in the garage.

2 weeks and counting...

Did you get them online or an auto-parts store?

Ordered them off Amazon; they're not actually Philips but they look good.

These are what I ordered: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o01_s00_i00

Does getting new turn signal bulbs void the warranty?

Can anyone tell me how to replace the front side reflectors? Do you take off the fender liner?

Nice, thanks! Those are quite a bit cheaper than the Philips too. I am going to order some.

Are you sure the Pin Offset is the same on the factory bulbs?

I already have the painted front reflectors.

I want all orange gone from the front!
