Correct, that is when they come on. If you want to HID match the bulb, it's an H3 bulb.

I'd suggest a higher wattage bulb to compensate for the color coating on the bulb, like say, one of these bulbs:
5000K: http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/nost2cowhh3t.html
7000K: http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/nost2arwhh3t.html

They only use another 30 watts over the standard H3 bulb wattage (55-watts), and the bulbs don't stay on for very long, so I wouldn't worry about heat. If you're really worried, get one of their little mini ceramic wiring harnesses to help disperse the heat better around the factory connections.

And the orange light in the corner of your blinker is a sidemarker of sorts.

Any further questions, feel free to PM me or post here, and I'll try to get back to you quickly
