I ended up going with the Nokya bulbs and even though i loved the way they looked they threw error codes. Did some research and picked up a set of PIAA plasma ion yellow 2500K bulbs from Amazon (cheapest I found online), the color output is the same as the Nokya's and they throw no codes, have been running them til this day and couldn't be happier. Probably going to be selling them soon though to get the lux Amber to match some stuff I recently got painted on the car.

Here's what the PIAA's look like

thanks for the pic. Would you say they are brighter than stock? Amazon has them for $56

I want amber too. I contacted lux but they won't be ready for 2-3 months still.
