indicator bulb for Blacklines + color matched paint pen

Ok first -

I need an "amber" colored turn signal bulb for my depo blacklines that I just installed, I have the OEM white bulb in there which is illegal in PA - Hopefully i can manage a few days until I can order a bulb.

I hear about these "stealth bulbs" that blink amber, but look almost clear when the light is off, are these legit? Where should I buy them? I read a few reviews to NOT by them from stealtauto.com and it is a ripoff or something?

I do NOT want LEDS, just OEM-style regular bulbs. and do not "need" these stealth bulbs if they are "much" more than plain jane amber-colored bulbs.



Second -

I need an touch-up paint pen, I put the smallest of small scratched around my hood emblem when I replaced this weekend

so I'd like to touch it up before it would form a rust spot and become worse. I know Bavauto sells these but what about the ebay ones? Those seem just as legit? My car is Jet Black so not too concerned that the paint wont match, much different than all the different whites BMW used, and the scratch is so small i could use a dab of a black sharpie and that would prob be OK, but might as well get the paintpen.


... be nice if a vendor sold both!, I would order today

Solaris stealth bulbs seem to be the choice, but are they LED? I don't want any error codes or any of that, I just want a simple swap out.

Are they led? Simple swap or did you have to add resistors so they didn't have errors?
