Question Will you upgrade to LED turn signals when available?

In early '07, I expect to see some GT's released with white turn signals lenses, and LEDs behind them. Will you upgrade at that time? I thought so... :p

Nope.

Never saw the need to look like the motorcycle version of a riceboy :wtf

Yeah, yeah.......I don't even own a GT. But I've had the option of LED and
clear or white lenses on my RS for years.

I just don't see it.

I loved them on my Ninja. yeah...yeah...I'm an EX-riceboy!
I'm just not sure that the GT needs them. For some reason, I don't mind the amber lenses.

I'm not so sure Greg. Wait until you look at one of these turn signals in your garage. Holy K-RAP! About burned my retinas! BMW did a really good job with the reflectors. You'd swear they are already LEDs. I took out the bulb just to make sure.
