I hope they will be orange, or at least available in orange.
As much as I am a freak for white LED, I think turn signals should always be orange.

White side markers/turn signals are not illegal in CA (see CA DMV link). Also if they are illegal in some states they would not be illegal to sell, just to use and that distinction is important.

I fail to see the purpose of these "LED side markers"... The factory side marker is already LED, using a transparent strip with special faces to propagate and reflect the light... a much more sophisticated design...

Ugh, thanks for the skepticism. That is typically my position. I missed the fact that OEM is LED.
