Actually, while we're on the subject, anyone happen to know the rules on
front turn signals?  I recently got some clear turns and installed them, but
forgot to get amber bulbs so I've just been driving around with white front
turn signals.  I tried to find the appropriate amber bulbs, but so far I
haven't found them available at any of the local auto parts stores.

Do we have to have amber turn signals in front?
