buy a bulb, smash the bulb, and solder wires to the bulb leads. heat shrink them.

Autolumination has SOME connectors, not sure if any are compatible with 3157?

I'm also looking for a good supplier for male connectors. I actually haven't tried autolumination yet.

Are you refering to the female socket? If so,you should be able to find them at any auto parts store,most likely in the HELP! section. icon_smile.gif

you want it prewired.... I understand and I think the only way to get prewired is breaking a bulb...

I think i'm going to go with the autolumination empty base. I just called to the staff and apparently it's really easy to install the wiring.
