LED Turn signal on 970 GTS style front end

Is it possible to make the White light around the GTS Turn Signal brighter AND turn the Yellow signal light to an LED?

I tried to look into this - not sure about the sidelight white ring question but the LED turn signal is a PITA. Basically, it's a 2-pin connector so the only way I can think to actually turn this into an LED is to cut and splice the wires to a new connector. I plan to do this in the coming month so if I do, I'll throw up a DIY thread (already have the LEDs, now just need the housing).

The surround light - most likely cannot make it brighter unless you dive in and modify the bulb(s). Not worth it IMO.
Turn signal bulbs - yes they can be replaced with LED. Front bumper must be removed to do so.

Do you know exactly what LED replacement bulbs are best for the white surround and yellow signal indicator? Any pix to see the differences? I can't find anything anywhere discussing or showing the change. I need to replace the air filter soon, so that would be the best time to make the change.

Not sure on the running light but here is a LED turn signal option:

That's what I'm saying - the bulbs you put up look like 194 LED fitments however the bulbs on the GTS style front are 2 pin, not the USB type fitment. The ones posted won't fit... at least on mine.

As we know they are not 194 but rather PH24WY - in the Turbo/GTS models. I believe TT/GTS utilize the same turn signal bulb as the lenses are the same.

Well that's a shame - plus I tried to modify them to fit and broke them in the process 😂 Essentially, the inserts for the pins are blocked by the plastic as they're too deep. The new bulbs are designed for a plug that is different, so they are too long and the pins are too short.

Oh well, back to the standard ones again. Still searching for options.
