I have replaced my amber turn signal bulbs with
BMW part # 63217160897 12v 21w bulbs.

These bulbs are chrome on the outside but illuminate amber when in use.

I may be the only person that has tried this and didn't like the effect...

While OFF, it definitely looks cleaner... so if you just want it to look sharp while parked, go for it... however, I did a side-by-side test with the stock bulb, and the chrome ones definitely light up a darker/deeper-orange and not as evenly across the signal.

Ultimately I thought it made the car look cheaper when signaling... the stock one is a solid, bright flashing amber, vs the dimmer deep orange glow-from-within look. The chrome comes at a brightness price it seems.

Just a warning, but to each their own!
