Stealth side marker lamps

Hello,
I have purchased a set of new gray-clear side marker
Lenses for our 03 Boxster. I was hoping to purchase a
Pair of stealth lamps to replace the amber ones, but
I cannot seem to find them.

Ideas please.
Thank you in advance.
Jinx

ebay... search on "silver or chrome [input bulb size] bulb"

You likely won't find any name brand (like Osram or Sylvania) replacements but they'll work just fine...

Good luck

Ecs tuning has them, that's where I got mine. Very easy to find. I think they are sold by pair, but I recall it wasn't clear from the site. I would call to confirm.

^ plus freight

You could buy at least 4 if not 5 pairs w/ the same quality / warranty from ebay for that price and maybe still have a $ or two left...

Wow, $30 for 2 bulbs!
They must have solid gold filaments or something.
Yeah, Pelican are a bunch of...owners of this site, so I'll play nice, but sheesh.
Then again, overpriced seems to be the rule for silver bulbs.

I just hit my ambers with a speckling of high temp silver spray paint. Eliminates 90% of the amber for about 20% of the cost of silver bulbs and they are still plenty bright in direct sunlight.

I'll be returning the lenses I had purchased from
Pelican. I ones from ECS are a lot cheaper and
The price includes the stealth lamps.
Thank you, jinx

I have about five different parts websites
Bookmarked on my laptop.. We will have
To check them all from now on before we
Order anything


Thanks

Jinx and Bill
