    Default Clear Corners !

    Planning on putting clear corners on my 95 540i, will the bulbs in there work with the clear or is there another type of bulb that I need to use.

    Same bulbs, although legally, you need the light to blink amber. And the ones in there are clear. Any auto store will carry the equivalent bulb in amber.

    If you don't want the orange bulb to be visible through the corner lenses when it's not blinking, you can spray a bit of high-temp silver paint (also known as "barbeque paint") on the bulb. It's not necessary to coat the whole bulb completely silver, just dust a bit on. Most people do this to avoid the "egg yolk" effect, but other people like that look anyway.

    Don't use the socket/bulb that come with them, just use the clear corner, and use your stock socket. I'd leave the stock bulb in, it flashes yellowish, but an orange bulb looks bleh.
