I'm using the ones from Bimmian (Solaris Invisi-bulbs, "diamond-coat") and love them. Click the link in my sig for my car's thread and you can see pics of the bulbs in action.

I bought the ebay replacements that you are looking at....work fine and are cheap..kinda. Packed like crap but arrived safely in a bubble envelope. It could have been easily crushed in transit
Changed the look of the front end when minus that orange look
passenger side seemed harder to change from what I remember but it only took a few minutes to change.
No oil from your hands should touch the bulb if you can help it. And you have to really push hard to install them.

i got mine and put them in but they never really "clicked" into place. i just pushed them hard untill i felt they were in and maybe wouldnt slide out. i was afraid i'd crush them. did urs click into place einstein? i may go with those sylvania's later on if they have that blue appearance when they are off.

mine actually did come out as soon as i stuck it in the housing. 15 minutes of fishing with needle nose pliers and cussing followed closely behind.

its a needed upgraded look for tCs. it takes that "eye crust" look out of the headlights.

i may switch to sum more evenly coated silver bulbs tho next time cuz my left bulb is a little less even near the base and i can see a squinch of amber when its off. only barely tho. the amber that they glow is much richer tho and better. not that stock yellow looking color.

also, i was at the dmv website for cali and it said

" Right front turn signal light clean, operating, and proper color (amber or white on signals facing forward)" and

"Left front turn signal light clean, operating, and proper color (amber or white on signals facing front)."

cuz i heard its illegal in some states if its glowing white.
