Default Looking for AMBER LED front turn signal bulbs that are at least as bright as stock

Must be amber, no interest in white/blue front turn signal bulbs.

I have resistors, so no concern about bulb out warnings.

Looking for something that is as brighter or brighter than stock.

Anyone know of any (that they have personal experience with)? Otherwise... I think it'll be back to stock for me...

I looked for such a thing a while back. Seems like there are plenty of options, but no direct comparisons and I didn't want to go ordering a bunch to try them out.

http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/T...78744-1-2.html

Those looked promising (possibly) considering they look to be LED's similar to the LED's in the tails which are very bright.

PM John (GhostM3JP). He has amber LED's in his, I believe and they fill the whole housing perfectly (better than stock). Looks great in person.

The second bulb down might be bright enough (120 leds )

I ordered a pair of these for the ISF, I'll let you know how it goes.

ETA?

More LEDs doen't really add brightness as much as brighter LEDs...

Still, doesn't mean this isn't more brighter LEDs. Looking forward to hearing your take!
