sweet lighting help

ok so lighting wise
all my stuff is stock except for the hyper white bulbs on the headlights

now i love how my hyper white headlights look
and was wondering if thier is anything like that for the turn signals(grille)
or for the side markers

question 2
do the grille lights or the sidmarkers have to be amber colored
im thinkin about goin clear all around and was wonderin if id have to get amber bulbs


3-
are their better brighter tailights


im askin all this cus i also might tint everything except the headlights
so i heard that i would need brighter cooler burnin bulbs on all tinted lights so u can both see them better and have less risk of disfiguring of the lense from the heat

Tropt1c.

There are not better tail lights per say. Now if you are looking to tin them i would switch to an LED style bulb only because it will be brighter but it will also cause way less heat. Which can be a big factor with tinted tails.

Upgrading them tinting is not worth it though. If a bulb is switched to LED you will get the same end.

Now for the grille, if you have a clear grille then you might step up your bulbs as well as your side marker bulbs to a xenon deal. It's not really xenon but the bulbs are blue in color but are clear when illuminated. Very cool i can post up a site with ll state car laws if you would like.

If a vehicle is equipped with two taillamps, they shall be mounted as specified in subdivision (d).

The additional taillamps on a tow truck shall be lighted whenever the headlamps are lighted.

from what i read
its ok to tint as long as its visable from 500 feet??
