Are these legal?
I know that red/blue are illegal since they're reserved for emergency vehicles but would this be legal in california?

I am sure your friendly neighborhood Chippie would be happy to tell you!:rofl: I would ask the DMV and get a cite from the applicable regs just to carry with me in case it was questioned.:eek:

I've seen they make these in changeable colors, you can basically dial in any RGB color from the dash.
There's a guy with a blacked out Challenger in my neighborhood, and every day his halo lights are set to a different color :)

Pursuant to national standards, forward lights emmitting iights shall be white (or select yellow). So I'd say 'no'.

Haha well I can't see it being an easy mod to make the halo lights a changeable color from the dash there a way to turn the angel eyes off and just leave the headlights on?
