Hey if any of you have done the sts-v or ww or homemade clear fog thing
then this might interest you
It is legal to have white or amber bulbs in your turn signals....personally i think white Led will look for our drl's instead if orange
anyway thought you should know

these are illinois laws but illinois is usually dumb about this stuff so i would bet it is legal everywhere.


I made a thread in the cts forum also

FTR - Not legal in Va... If the lens is clear the bulb must be amber... Won't pass safety inspection

I know in MO, CA, and VA the lights cannot be white.
Not sure about the other 47 states.
;)
I thought DOT regulations were Amber bulbs or lenses.
I also seem to recall that some states outlawed the blue dots too.

ewill3rd i got a question i have these bulbs and i cant get them to turn white. i heard you were a tec and i was wondering if u had any insight on how to make them work properly

these are the ones i have....switchbacks http://autolumination.com/switchback.html

this was my original fix but they stay orange....i think it has somthing to do with only 2 wires going to the socket???? any insight would be appreciated :yup:
Thanks
