Default Chrome Front Indicator Bulbs

Hi

Anyone know where I can get a set of chromed front indicator bulbs (I believe the bulb is an R183). A UK supplier wants just over $27 (16.99) for a pair yet I can get standard bayonet cap chrome bulbs for $5.

Maybe a US company will ship to UK, but probably find the postage is too high!

Thanks

That R 183 must be a British designation for those turn signal bulbs. Our calls for a 4157.

Anyhow, I had those chrome covered amber bulbs for awhile. Yes, they do look good when not being used and do light up amber when you use them BUT they are not as bright as the straight amber bulbs. I took them out as I wanted other drivers to actually have the best chance of knowing they are on.

There's plenty of places that sell the chrome cover bulbs but not sure about shipping to the UK. Here's a couple of them. Try eBay.

Chrome Bulbs, Mirror Bulbs look silver but flash amber when lit.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

You could get a set of led bulbs since they won't give off an amber reflection but will light up yellow and then get a relay (something likethis) and you will have the correct blink rate, bright bulbs (granted you get quality bulbs) and they won't give off the amber reflection you are trying to get rid of.

ive tried led's but they weren't as bright. i currently have the chrome bulbs and i think they light up just fine.

Thanks Crewzin, the R183 must be UK, I searched for 4157 and found a supplier in Taiwan for about $10 including delivery
