I understand exactly what you mean.
Apparently you don't understand me.
Or perhaps you haven't worked on vehicle electrical systems before??? I've been working on cars since I was 16 including rebuilding engines and modifying electrical stuff (including stereo systems and lighting).
If you haven't worked on vehicle electrical systems then I would highly recommend you don't, especially with these CANBUS vehicles. You can really screw up the vehicle. I recall a teenager back in the mid-90s that was so proud that he installed his own stereo system, until he learned that he had also fried his transmission computer (and no that wasn't me).
First, I would like to correct my previous post. The front turn/marker lights are 7443 bulbs (not 3157).
Either way, they are dual filament bulbs, which means there are 3 wires going to the bulb. 1 ground, 1 park, and 1 turn.
All you would need to do is use a volt meter to figure out which lead is for the park circuit and using the correct tools, remove that lead from the bulb socket. VERY EASY.
And cheaper than buying different bulbs. That way you would still have amber front turn signals.
But again, you should check your local laws if you don't want to risk getting an equipment ticket from the local REOs.
