Seen some of these ebay sellers offering 4 & 6 Blue LED Clusters for replacing the normal white Halogen bulbs in the Parking lights, would they even be legal?
You'd think the Cops would have a fit since their unmarked cars normally have 2 blue lights mounted (hidden) behind the grill.

It is illegal to have any other colour than white as your parker lamps. While they might be for sale in other colours, no one if forcing you to buy and install them.

Just use white LED's, compared to normal globes which look yellowy, the white LED's look bluey. And at least you shouldn't get any issue using them.

i have white LED parkers in my EL, when i was waved into an RBT station with only the parkers on, the cop tried to defect me on the spot for having "blue" parkers.

i then spent the next 5 minutes trying to explain that they were white etc etc.... until i just popped the bonnet and ripped one out and shoved it in his face and said "look, white."

cop looked pretty stupid after that :roll:

Lots of things for sale are actually illegal to use.

They'll come with (not always) with caveats saying off road or show car use only etc.
