The side and rear lights come with amber lights that work fine. But the front clear blinkers come with European amber bulbs that don't work with the same wiring harness on your US car. European cars don't have parking lights, and instead have have city lights (their low beams have an extra little 10W bulb that lights the high beam reflector). You'll have to buy a pair of American parking light/ turn signal bulbs from your local Pep Boys. They will have 2 filaments, one low wattage for the parking, one higher wattage for the turn signal.
