Looking for Silver Vision or equivelant amber-free turn signal bulbs

In advance of performing an "amberectomy" on my 03 986 front turn signals, I've been looking for Silver Vision bulbs or their equivalent online and have been unsuccessful. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Ron

I am about to do this as well...while the car is in storage. Have any good methods planned? Is it easy to withdraw and install the head lights? I will be doing it in the cold.....sub zero C

I going about looking for a thin soldering iron right now.

The headlight units are extremely easy to remove. Just follow the instructions in the manual. However, one IMPORTANT word of caution. BE CAREFUL to NOT pick up/withdraw the unit by the little corner front piece. It will snap right off, especially in the cold. Trust me on this one!

When I did the amberectomy, I bought the silver bulbs from stealthauto.com . They were a little more expensive but offered a great product and excellent service with lifetime replacement.
I originally bought from xenonmods but had a terrible experience including very delayed shipping and no email response until I initiated a sucessful PayPal dispute, and then I got several nasty emails trying to blame me! IMHO - STAY AWAY!!
