I actually got pulled over for having blue rear sidemarkers, blue license plate light, and blue front marker.

I asked the cop and he said the turn signal had to be amber. But I think the front markers can be white or amber.

Now I am thinking about getting the smoked chrome foglights (to match my turn signal housings) and installing the HIDs to match the factroy HIDs. I wonder if the light output is diminished from the smoked chrome? Any thoughts 2007CalSpec?
I just looked at the LED halo fogs on AM. You're better off going with CCFL halos. They're much brighter. You'll want the halos brighter if your lense will be smoked. Also, those LED halos don't look that good, IMO, since they have a split at the top and bottom making them look like two half circles.
Example

The CCFL halos are nearly a complete circle as seen here...

Check out this cross reference. 194 will work.

Yeah you can't have blue rear sidemarkers or blue front markers.

California law states that the rear side markers have to be red and front markers have to be amber. Turn signals can be either white or amber which is what the switchbacks are and they are nowhere near being too blue to get pulled over.

V.C. 24953. (a) Any turn signal system used to give a signal of intention to turn right or left shall project a flashing white or amber light visible to the front and a flashing red or amber light visible to the rear.

V.C. 25106. (a) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with lighted white or amber cowl or fender lamps on the front. Any vehicle may be equipped with not more than one amber side lamp on each side near the front, nor more than one red side lamp on each side near the rear. The light source of each such lamp shall not exceed four standard candlepower.
(b) Lamps meeting requirements established by the department for side-marker or combination clearance and side-marker lamps may be installed on the sides of vehicles at any location, but any lamp installed within 24 inches of the rear of the vehicle shall be red, and any lamp installed at any other location shall be amber.

how'd that end up working out for you?

It worked out great. I got 6000K HID headlights and fogs and they now match the switchbacks.

Default Problem with these bulbs

I got these bulbs and installed them with the resistors correctly and the parking light mode works fine but when I put the turn signal on the flash orange one time and then go back white. Can anyone help me?
