Default LED Signal Color Question

I was going to order the LED signal bulbs from Umnitza .. and had a quick question.. If the lights are on.. at night lets say.. the signal bulb is also on right? Just at a lower level than if it were acting as a signal?

Im trying to figure out if I should get Amber or 6000k.. right now I have 6000k LED AE's .. Thanks Guys!

I think most states require amber turn signals (but I think the actual corner lights can be white). VLEDs has some alternating ones (I had a set on my Acura) that are pretty good if that is the look you want. The one thing I don't know about is whether you could do white corner lights w/o amber reflectors.

It is against DOT to run a 6000k Signal bulb regarless of amber or clear signal housing.

Just stick with an amber bulb and go LED. dont go gay honda ***** with 6000k signals.
