Good Great Looking Stealth LED Turn Bulbs

So I had LED bulbs for the turns in my Euro Clear OEM'ish lights that were to be installed.

Like DUH....I had the correct 3156 Bulb the 1st time I ordered the LED bulbs. But the dang Ebay listing under description had it listed as a 7507 turn bulb. LOL, maybe it was the CN/EN translation that got messed up. So I returned it and I had a 7507 LED turn bulb in hand

Anyhow, I ended up putting back the chrome ~stealths~ that I had in my existing lights.
- They look REALLY REALLY good in the euro clear design headlights but don't have that 2600 Lumens output like the LED

Oh boi. What to do what to do . Those chrome stealth bulbs look great in the housing.

Functionally, the LEDS are better. I'm a believer. I def see the difference in the rear tails !

I have the Canbus ones in the rear tailights. They big and bright. Great on function, but definitely not stealth. Deciding should I just keep the sleek svelte Stealth Bulbs or the screamining ~correct fit~ LED bulbs

So what are you looking for? 3157 or 7507?

You can also mod 1157 to fit in the 7507 socket:

3156. The stealth bulb just disappears with it's the hourglass chrome dress in the housing.

The fat porky Canbud LEDS do no. It def stands out more.
Ahhh...but the LED is so much brighter.
