What are "silver bulbs" - FAQ
In short, silver bulbs are normal turn signal bulbs (typically amber) that have been electroplated with a very thin layer of chrome finish, giving them a silver look. When the bulbs are not lit they appear clear inside the light unit, but are really like a mirror reflecting everything around it. When lit they are bright orange just like the lights currently in your vehicle today.
The reason "silver bulbs" are so popular is because they remove the fried egg effect that the amber bulbs give the crystal headlight and taillight units. The fried egg effect is named that because the crystal light with the amber bulb looks like a fried egg - white all around, with the orange yolk in the middle.
