Need an opinion. Help :)

Okay, so I bought clear side markers and blinkers, I wanted to change them to blue, but a friend of mine said to leave them amber because of our gay state laws. Sure enough anything inbetween white and amber has to be for the blinkers. So there went my blue idea, my next question is, since I have to stay amber in the blinkers, should I still stick with blue sidemarker lights and parking lights or should I just go with the amber led? Keep in mind this is a nordic mist silver lude.

There's a llama.

Re: Need an opinion. Help :)

you cannot have any blue lights on the exterior of your car at all. doesnt matter where it is.
That is restricted to police and emergency vehicles.

Re: Need an opinion. Help :)

My state law says as long as its inbetween white and amber for turn signals, tailights must be red and be seen from 300 feet from the rear of the vehicle. Doesn't say anything about parking lights or anything like that, because the new Audi SUV's my girlfriend's rich aunt drives the running board light on the upper front quarter panel is a bluish white and thats straight from manufacture. Also all the S2k's around here have the white sidemarker with different bulbs aswell?


Here's the link I used:

Re: Need an opinion. Help :)

Amber is best. I got a ticket for having a blue dome light, blue reverse lights, blue signal lights and blue license plates lights. Lol.. in other words blue lights will get you a ticket... amber is better anywayz, gives it a more jdm look... especially if your putting it for side markers

Re: Need an opinion. Help :)

always thought the silver ludes looked best cleared right out. even if the blue sides are legit its still a heat score. ever since i got my super white projectors ive been on a mission though to get rid of all incandescent bulbs on the exterior. they just dont look right. the amber sides i think look boring and stock(not stock in a good way either) the amber jdm fogs are the exception as i think they do make a difference even though i still got clear ones. keep in mind my ludes black.

Idk, my dad had blues in his project F-150 all the way around and only got harrased once from a black racist cop who just wanted to harrass my dad. Other than that, I might just put whites in, but I do want the blue parking lights though for when I'm parked.

Re: Need an opinion. Help :)

I have blue parking lights, hyper white side markers and hyper white front turn signals. All LEDs. I've never gotten pulled over for these. I've even gotten pulled over for broken tail light, but they don't mention the LEDs. But I'm in buffalo, NY. Depends on where you are I guess. If anything, I just put what LEDs I want and when they pull me over, I'll tell them I'll just fix it. Or worst that can happen is a small ticket..

Nah, I'll have blue side markers, only difference, I'll save them amber bulbs in the glovebox if worse comes to worse.

I think blue sidemarkers are really obvious and will probably get you pulled over eventually. But I don't see a big deal in it unless you have expired reg. or insurance or something.
