For those of you that like the euro-look of the Amber turn signal, but don’t want an amber insert, check this out. No lens modification is required which significantly reduces cost in addition to retaining a much more flowing appearance.

How does it work?

Until recently, Red, Amber/orange were the only LED colors available in the lower part of the visual spectrum, but new LED technology has provided Yellow LEDs. With a wavelength of between 585 and 595Nm, these 100mA 40,000 mcd LEDs emit a brilliant yellow which turns to amber when it passes though a red filter lens.

This is the result (this is an all-red lens)


The good news: it also works with Tinted tail lights. This is a test on my super-dark tinted tail lights: (smoked cherry will be about twice as bright)



Brake w/ amber turn for comparison:
