Default Turn signal bulb

Hello all,
I bought a pair of 3057s to replace the stock "orange" bulbs, but I happened to look at my headlight thingy, and there's a insert that is orange... Will the color still be orange with a white bulb?

Eli, you didn't notice that orange "thingy" before this? No, if you replace the amber bulb with white, the turn signal will blink white. The orange "thingy" is the reflector which will bounce back orange when another cars light strike you car from the side. By law you need and amber reflector in the front and red reflector in the rear.

As far and changing the blinker bulb, beware, when you have the headlights on (at night or even in the day time) it will be harder for someone coming from the other direction to see that the blinker is on and could mistake you for going straight when you are turning in front of him. The headlight is many times brighter than the blinker and could overpower that blinking light that your signaling to make a turn.
