led lighting

I have been upgrading all my lights a little at a time with led bulbs. I have been buying them off ebay and am very happy thusfar except having to wait 3 weeks for them to ship from china or wherever they have those 5 year old kids making them. Only ones I have left to go are the turn signal and brake lamps. My question is will I get hyperflash with the turn signals? If so is there a bulb that wont do this or what can I do to to not get hyperflash. Second question is about the tail/brake lights. The factory bulbs are a dual filament. Can a ebay or any led bulb do this dual function? Third question is which will be brighter and more visable, red bulb behind red lense or clear/white bulb behind red lense? Same question for amber color. I have been using the bulbs with the little square flat led's and would like to keep with that style if possible. Thanks guys!

Ha, all I've done was the license plate bulbs. But, I'd think its a matter of if there is enough resistance to have the bulb hyper flash or not. That's why some bulbs have a built in "resistance/load" and others you'd have to add it inline to the light. I wish I knew about the dual filament question. I think I've seen those, but not quite sure.
