Any idea where I can get chromed bulbs?

Oreailly's Auto Parts, Autozone, #3157 for the front bulbs in chromed color. they take away the Amber color when you look at them through the lenses, but when you use your blinker they are Amber again!
I opted for the clear because i don't care, if the police ask me to change them then i will! they blink and other drivers should know what i am trying to do!

Installation just involves removing 3 screws on each side (under panel with an allen wrench), twist the old bulb out and plug the new one in!

Tell me about it! When I was shopping for my car, I was all excited about the 12's because I saw their website with the "HID" fog lights and thought that was one of the changes made for the year...Needless to say, I was a little disappointed.

Just Plasti Dipped my wheels today! Love this stuff. I'm certainly not the first to do this on a 45th, but thought I'd share my pics. All credit goes to hightower for inspiring me.
