Ok so i had a chat with the pros over at iJDMToy and got some info. Apparently the front and rear turn signals MUST have some type or decoder or resistor to work properly and avoid the dash warning light. The OEM tail light (7443) is a dual filament (driving light and brake), so they make a special bulb for that application but it also uses a decoder. The front turn signal decoder would fit easily but the rear turn signal and tail light decoders, as there is no space, would be a tight fit. The ones labelled as "Error-free" would also work but are more pricey. Additionally, as the actual color of the rear housing is red and orange, it wouldn't really serve a purpose to change them especially since I'm using smoke tint film on the tail lights. I was only hoping to increase the brightness as I'm moving from 20% film to 5% film. He told me the brightness is the same as halogen and wouldn't cause much change. In the headlight though, it would only remove the slight amber tint of the turn signal behind the grooved glass. Anyway, so it seems that I won't be taking on the swap and will just leave things as is.
