what type of bulbs for rear turn signals

I'm looking to replace the amber turn signal bulbs with the Sylvania silverstar ones that have a purplish reflection but actually flash amber.

They look like this..



Not sure what kind of bulb type we have though.


Thanks!

those are exactly what I have. They fit but you have to shave off the side tabs of the base.

Thanks Touring05.. I just ordered a set.. Like you, discovered the 3757's are almost identical to the 3157 but with the difference being those little nubs. Do you happen to have any pics of yours installed? I think they would look really cool on my TriCoat White metallic. I want to get rid of that yellow egg yolk effect on the rear turns.

Here you go! Yeah I hate the egg yolk look too. I bought three sets of these from Pepboys two years ago. I can't find them there anymore.
