Pfft.. What a waste. Do it yourself. Buy some regular bulbs and then spray a thin coat of silver paint over it. It does exactly the same thing. Eitherway, you loose a little light due to the coating.

I had a buddy with a Scooby use model airplane paint, special silver mirror relective paint for cockpits or windows. It looked just like those, but it did make his blinkers a little dimmer.

Yes, actual paint. Just spray very thin coats at a time. I'm pretty sure that those Philips ones aren't as bright as the stock yellow light.

But the Razo gigalux ones are. Premium white zero or the regular PW ones are very good for what they cost.

My friend has a Yukon, with cleared corners, and he was bothered by the reflection so he used heat-shrink on the back of the bulbs and it cleaned up the yellow mess pretty well.
