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?Originally Posted by the cadillac man
Bottom line is it is HIGHLY unlikely that you would get pulled over for this alone and even if you were ticketed, it's not a moving violation, just a "fix it" ticket. No different than say modified exhaust or having a cold air intake. 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!
