The rear turn bulb is a 7507. We do offer LED and Solaris bulb upgrades for the turn signal if you are looking to get rid of the amber reflection as well

I know, it's tough given the odd fit of the bulb but we are working with a few manufacturers on the mold.

Will it be an LED or halogen bulb? Also, any new time frame for release?

Actually working on a mold with the manufacturer, we are going slow with this project on purpose to make sure it's done right. It's very tricky unfortunately given the design of the housing and bulb itself.

It looks like 1 LED and 1 Bulb. This picture is when head lights on, turn signal off...

Would be nice to have no amber lights when turn signals are off.

I thought you meant an LED bulb in the socket. The LED bulb is attached to the upper part of the housing and can be disabled through soldering some wires.

Being we're on this topic, here are some pics of the JLevi LED rear turn signals that I installed recently:

That's a reflection. Front turns/parking lamps are SilverVision, so you don't see the yellow when they are not on. Side marker is an amber LED.

Who can do the soldering? I am leery of doing it myself.
