Just wondering if any LED bulbs plug into the front turn signals? I'm looking for a very very white looking turn signal or slightly blue to match my HIDS that I'm installing... any help would be great!

If you are referring to the side turn signals, they also have ones for the front running lights/turn signals. 1157(2057) bulb.

I've gotten some at Autozone, I used them in my WRX. Didn't last that long though, maybe 2 years. I don't think the LED it self went out, probably the current limiting circuit.

I was referring to the "parking light" front signals... the 2057's

Do the LED ones come with a current limiting circuit built in? Or do you have to buy one and wire it in?

All the ones I've seen come with the circuit built into the base of the bulb, or in the case of the smaller ones, it is the base of the bulb., but you do need to upgrade to an electronic flasher otherwise you get weird problems because they don't have the correct resistance. Should be able to pick up one of those anyplace that sells the LED bulbs.

Found this thread when I was trying to find out how many 2057 and 1157 bulbs there are total on the Fiero so I knew how many LED replacements to Order!

I got wedge LEDs from http://www.Superbrightleds.com for the PONTIAC symbol and they worked great, so I'm in the process of buying their other bulb replacement units. Their website is a bit cumbersome (in my opinion), but great pieces.

Don't forget to use a bridge rectifier if you replace your front marker lights with LEDs. See the ogre's page on this for more info.

Right, if you don't use the correct rectifier and blinker, the rear taillights and markers will light up when they're not supposed to, and the blinkers on the instrument panel will be lit all the time.

Thanks for the info on the rectifier guys! I was planning on replacing the blinker bulbs in my next order (along with the rest of the 2057 bulbs in the rear). I'll have to add that to my list!

Ah hah !

That's the fix I needed.

My turn signals glow about half intensity when the headlights are on.

My front LED's came from Princess Auto. Power Fist brand, about 7 dollars each.

Have you tried Princess Automotive they have all kinds of LED lighting, including replacement bulbs in red, white, and amber. They are even on sale once and a while.
