Side Mirrors? The turn signal in the mirror is LED.

I don't know about changing them to be white when you put the turn signal on but I know there's a mod out there for them to be illuminated white when the lights are on but when you signal it goes back to amber.

Concur with optima_k5 there are modules to purchase with white running lights/Amber turn signals. YouTube has a glut of videos on how to change them out.

Just tried this today. Apparently the 2016 SX Turbo has a completely different light for this (despite looking the same on the outside). Discovered this as a I tried to swap out a broken light in on the passenger side mirror. Apparently there's no bi-colored LED option for that light. So I have a smokey LED that I am going to see if I can get a refund on (the ebay seller had the SX Turbo listed as compatible).

Most likely it may/will vary from state to state but here in CA you can have clear front turn signal lenses but the light emitted from the front turn signal housing when the turn signal is engaged must be amber IIRC. Also no lights forward/rear that emit blue color (LEO/first responder colors).
