i got pulled over for have blue LED's and he told me to pull them out right there, so i said what colours are legal and he said white, red and yellow.

but fugg nose why red because he said blue is illegal due to the police lights, but then i thought so is red ya wanker!

so i have red led's in my EF and i have pulled up behind cops and driven towards them and never even got a second look.

i allready have the leds, from solar lights hahaha but there bright!

No, they are not bright! :P

If you going to go to the trouble of running the wires etc then go spend $2 on a few good high intensity LEDs from jaycar or the like.

In the below pic I have 2x 8mm 14,000 mcd LEDs in each light for my parkers and they look much better than a single pin pointed 5mm LED you'll pull out of a solar light.

The yellow one is the standard globe compared with the LEDs

those headlight globes now have another two leds in each of the highbeam sections hooked up the park light, so the entire housing now illuminates! but ther not mine any more as i sold them the other day as I've got XR front now
