Bulbs for Clear Side and Tail Lights

I just finally broke down and got clear top tail lights and clear side lights for my 2000 S. It seems that the right bulb solution for the tail lights is the Philips Silver Vision.

What's the right bulb for the side lights? I see that Philips has a W5W Blue Vision that looks at lot light Xeon. Is white the right color for side markers?

Legally the side markers are supposed to be amber.

From the CA DMV V.C.
25100. (a) Except as provided in subdivisions (b) and (d), every vehicle 80 inches or more in overall width shall be equipped during darkness as follows:

(1) At least one amber clearance lamp on each side mounted on a forward-facing portion of the vehicle and visible from the front and at least one red clearance lamp at each side mounted on a rearward-facing portion of the vehicle and visible from the rear.

(2) At least one amber side-marker lamp on each side near the front and at least one red side-marker lamp on each side near the rear.
