i heard somewhere that you can use 3157 bulbs in place of 3057....any truth to that statement?

3157 are a little easier to find in different colors/brightness than the 3057
Re: PIC REQUEST: aftermarket reverse light bulbs..

yeah they are the same as far as I know... the only difference is the 3157s have dual filaments for turn signals and brake light usage... I took a couple 3157s and shorted across the two contacts so that when I put on my backup lights I get both filaments lighting... I'll see about getting a pic or two tonight to show you how it works...

The head lights are a nice blue they are - EURODEZIGNS H11's 8500k bulbs
the foglights are stock they are more of a bad yellow color the pic made em to look white, but they are still stock.
here is a link to where u can buy the bulbs for the headlights and the fogs.
different brand but same.... GP Thunder is the name....

as far as the revers lights and the front turns they are the same. you can buy them at Walmart, thats what i do anyhow.
you can find them in the automotive area near where they sell the replacement car bubls. the blubs come in a back of 2. The glass is blue and the plastice piece that u plug into the connector ( the male part ) it is black. the bubls are really easly missed just take ur time and look for them.

good luck

so you bought your headlights at walmart?They are damm nice white and hella bright. What kind are they? Did you find them in the auto section? or are you just talking about your backup lights/turn signals/fogs?
