Changing front turn signal bulbs--Clear Bulb?

Hi,

I currently have some aftermarket blue front turn signal bulbs. I really do love them, but they are suuuuper blue. I know it is only a matter of time before my luck runs out and I get popped for them.

Anyways, I don't want to put the stock egg yolk yellow bulbs back in. For some reason, that really bugs me, just looks really like a out of place color that has no rhyme or reason and I do not want this.

But does anyone have a link for some CLEAR front signal bulbs? I would be much happier changing the ultra blue signals for some clear ones. My friends had a Chevy Tahoe back in the day, cleared out the signals and put clear turn bulbs in and would always be good. They would get rolled for tint all the time, but never for the clear front signals.

Anyways, if anyone had a link to some standard clear front turn signals, please post here.. Thanks

Sorry, yes they are; anything but a bulb that actually flashes orange is illegal to use in the UK as an indicator
