What?...that's over your head?? It tells you what are the legal colors of your different lights. Dark tint and clear side markers are illegal as are clear DRLs.

I was hoping to run clear DRLs.

I'm taking a guess but a large difference is normally what is stock and what's not. Lexus has the stock reflecting tint. It's illegal here (VA) to have it unless it's stock. Get my drift? Also it's the color of the bulb, have a clear sidemarker but have the legal color bulb. I think?

The lens can be clear. It just has to glow amber.
Clear your corners, get the amber bulbs with the silvered coating and everyone is happy. They just don't want you messing around with the indicator light colors (amber is a notice, red is stop, etc.).





...and Robert, an H3? :gothicaleigh:




:p

All inside its so frustrating as I drift from town to town
Feel as though nobody cares if I live or die
So I might as well begin to put some action in my life
