hello
I need to replace my corner lights
but instead of the stock clear, I like the amber look better
is it legal to have them?
I know trucks and other cars have yellow side marker lights
but our corner lights are right above the turn signal light

They're originally amber, clears are aftermarket and technically considered illegal.

And for anyone who tries to argue otherwise, any aftermarket light, interior or exterior is illegal, it hasn't ben approved by the Department of Transportation. Most cops don't push it though unless they have nothing else to pin you for and they're just a complete ass.

^That car has the JDM 1 pieces with an orange bulb. Just go to Autozone/Pepboys/any-auto-store and buy some orange bulbs.

Its not illegal to have clear turn signals, it illegal to have a different colored bulb, turn signal bulbs are supposed to be orange. Ex. blue, white lights are illegal as turn signal lights. Clear is fine as long as you have orange bulbs.

Yup. Orange is legal. As long as its orange and looks stock, you should have no trouble.

I know this is too late but as far as i know amber lights are legal in several states in united states regardless whether they blink or not. However I heared that those headlights are a super pain to get them open so if u really want them out then get some aftermarkets and bake then open then take the reflector out.
