So is it just a cosmetic benefit to not have a orange bulb in the housing? When actually blinking, they look the same?

I thought DOT required yellow turn signals in the front?
It depends on your local laws, but in Cali, you can have amber or white for front signals.

I SO agree with you guys! I have a 2013 328i M Sport. The ONLY thing I am disappointed in is the lack of LED lights. Not on the brake lights, not on the rear turn signals, not on the FRONT turn signals.

I know WHY they do it, but I'm still disappointed. Simply, it is built-in obsolescence! They want the 2015 model to have these upgrades and cause people like us to want that latest, greatest.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who thinks this is BS. I complained to my significant other and got a blank stare. Yes, it is a beautiful car, but please don't deny us LEDs!!!

I replaced the orange bulbs in bouth our F25 and F30 with these from Amazon:

7507 PY21W Chrome Amber Turn Signal Light Bulbs

They were like $10 a set. Look really good. Pretty much all silver with just a tiny hint of orange. Looks 100% better than the OEM orange bulbs.

I personally like orange corners. All white corners seem so 2002.

I too am very disappointed about the lack of LED. Actually, I did not even bother checking before buying my car : I had assumed it had some. So yes, planning to swap the bulbs. I should be getting those today :

Hopefully, not resistor, and sufficiently bright, will post pics as soon as I put them.
