The wipers are my MOT wipers. As the sunstrip was more than 10mm in the swept area it was so called obscuring the drivers view. Smaller wipers meant they swiped less than 10mm and the sunstrip no loger obscured my view, lol

I don't want to sound picky or mean but they are blue lights correct? And you intend to drive with them on?

What do you mean by correct? Do you mean legal? Answer is no, theyre not legal. The single led's come on automatically with my headlights, the fogs have a switch. Depending on where I am I may put them on.

but you shouldn't drive with blue lights showing anywhere on your car, be it when you think there aren't police around to catch you or not...! Seriously, if you looked in your rear view and could just pick out some blue lights, what would you think? My automatic response is to concentrate so much and if necessary pull in. There illegal because people think of an emergency vehicle when they see blue.

I meant correct as in it wasn't a tint by a fault of your camera or incase I am turning colour blind lol.

So everytime you turn on your headlights you're showing blue lights, that's bad :(

You should have them on a switch, its an automatic 30 for EACH illegal light, your looking at 120 for every time the bab spot you! Thats not counting those 'driving' lamps...

Not too keen on the led'S, a bit too chav for me, sorry! :I

Oh come on! Since when have u seen an emergency vehicle with tiny little bulbs near to the floor which dont flash on a car that has a shopping trolley handle on the back of it? The neons were the same. Ever seen an emergency vehicle with undercar lighting?

The small led's will be on all the time with the headlights. Ever seen a lorry on the motorway with more lights on them than Blackpool?

I'll take the risk with plod for the fairy lights, the fogs will only be on very occasionaly and not in traffic. Anyone who thinks my car maybe an emergency vehicle and pull over need their eyes tested. However, the strobes are a different matter, rofl

Whimy, come on! How good is your eye sight? I know that in the dark all you can see is lights. Therefore if i catch the sight of blue in my side/rearview mirror, like all others I automatically think police. The light will be distorted by the white of your headlamps anyway so the blue could easily be misunderstand is being behind you and reflecting.

Blue is a really bad colour, worse than red in my opinion because blue automatically tells everyone emergency vehicle and in the dark it is usually nigh impossible to see the difference between a small blue light 50m away or a large blue light 150m away. This is especially true in your rear view mirror when at night, any amount of blue will lead to a change in driving style.

I hate being like this to you but i feel strongly that you could be causing a danger using them on your car, am i the only one you thinks so??

Oh and in terms of the law, if a copper is pissed off with his day, 120 could be the smallest of worries when you are arrested on the spot for "Attempting to impersonate a emergency vehicle".

I could understand what you are saying if they flashed. Then yes, it could cause a problem. But small lights that dont flicker or flash? Do you pull over at every car with windscreen wash led's on them?

I was going to but I knackered the control box for them. Tried turning the tempo up a bit too much and snapped something off inside it. On attemptint to repair them I touched part of the circuit board I shouldnt have and sent 450v through my left arm. Ooops, lol.

No wthese would have been for show only and not used on the road

Wimmy, on a bumpy road they may appear to flash!

Paul, you have a point but chill! You can't right all the wrongs, its wimmy's car and he is aware of the risks and has decided he will take them, thats his decision, wrong or right.

IMO Wimmy, your car is very nice, but I reckon led's are little tacky and detract from it overall, just my op tho;)

Stilo TURBO!!!!(diesel)
