To everyone else: LAST CHANCE to volunteer your stock amber reflectors and receive the first set of clears (and your ambers back) absolutely free!
Good news.......I just bought a pair of broken HID headlights. The tabs & lens are damaged beyond use but the reflectors are in perfect shape. I will get them removed & ship them out to u.
USPS flat rate box. Can't go wrong.
I'll let u know when they get shipped out.
Its illegal to use a HID bulb in a halogen housing, doesn't matter what state ur in.
All I'm saying is there are thousands upon thousands of cars that are running HIDs in a halogen housing. I don't think a little reflector is going to make that much of a difference.
I took the amber reflector out of my CTS headlights.
I'm also using OEM JDM headlights in my Prius.
OEM US lights
Have never had a problem in Los Angeles.
well i looked at the laws in my state and i can't remove the amber lens but i don't know if replacing it with a clear one would raise a flag with the cops in my state or not as i don't want to get a ticket the only thing that has kept them from knowing i have hid's in my high beams is i have 4300k bulbs so far i have had good luck on that but a reflector i'd be afraid to push my luck to far.
Do u have a yearly inspection?Quote:

In CA you can take a fix it ticket down to the local Highway Patrol station and show an officer that it has been corrected and it's a done deal, no fine, no problems.
By the way sfv41901, the CTS looks great!
Lights are opened & Here they are.
I will try to get them out tomorrow.
Just a thought, If replacing the amber with the clear lens and worried about any type of tickets, how about replacing the bulb with an amber bulb?
I personally am looking for the "daytime" look of the vehicle rather than wht it looks like at night.
I am seriously interested in the white lens as well!
