Default PSA: Front Turn Light replacement part 3457

So my front left blinker died yesterday while I was driving. I knew because I got that rapid blinker symptom (I remember when that was a desired mod in the 90's). Luckily, I was a block from a pep boys. Pulled in, checked the lights, found that it was the front, and pulled the bulb.

The bulb markings showed 3357, but they didn't have any amber ones inside, just clear. Not only that, but no one seemed to sell a 3357 amber online. Strange - so I went looking around. Found some old forum posts here that said that sylvania website recommends 3357/3457 for our cars. They did have a 3457A (amber). The form factor looked exactly the same to me. Picked that one up and 2 minutes later I have a working turn blinker.

This is just a FYI if you run across this issue. Unless someone knows something different. I plugged 3457 into the online shops and there's a ton around, but all the advisors say that they're not compatible with our cars.

Go figure?

A 3357/3347 (brightness is 30 lumens). The 2 bases are the same.
Some bulb nomenclature NA, LL, K.
"NA" means "Natural Amber". The actual physical type is 3457. "LL" means "Long Life", and"K" is filled with Krypton gas.
