Electronic Flasher Question

I currently have this flasher unit:
CF12ANL-01 LED Bulb Electronic Flasher | Flashers & Load Resistors | Car Bulb Installation Supplies | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs | Super Bright LEDs

I want the clicking sound however so I was thinking of getting this one:
http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...asher/782/836/

The second one says it's for European cars. The only difference I see between the two is the ground prong. Seems to me I could use this one and just ground the third prong somewhere under the dash.

Thoughts?

With the third male terminal, three-terminal flashers won't plug into the sockets on the fuse box.

Two-terminal version of the above flasher: CF12ANL-01 LED Bulb Electronic Flasher | Flashers & Load Resistors | Car Bulb Installation Supplies | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs | Super Bright LEDs . You'll need one for the directionals and one for the emergencies.

I am replacing the round one in the fuse panel in the dash to the lower left of the steering wheel. It is the 2 prong mechanical one and as said above the third prong won't work. One I am replacing is a Tridon EL12. The one from rock auto is the same and I am replacing mine because it is intermittent and its about time for a new one.

^^^^ You'll still need the second one to replace the one behind that one on the other side of the panel; one is for the directionals and one is for the emergencies.
