I assume thats the tail light, right? I swear I saw one that said 3000k and 3500k, both with the same base.

If its not the tail light then epic fail for me.

Re: What's the difference between a 3157 and 3457 bulb?

Ok so here's the deal. My wifes car calls for a 3457 and I got her a chrome/super white one, well she wants a chrome/amber one. So I'm going to use the 3457 for my Blazers turn signal. The 3457 I have isn't really all that bright, but that may just be from the chrome.

So since they're interchangeable which one is brighter?

Which one should I go with?
