Yes that's right, the LED is white and not yellow. Package one is just the housing.

I'm also just a little uncertain about the Chinese lights. I really like the projector HIDs, but I want to wait and see how they last. It's nothing against you and your company. I like that you are running the lights threw a 100% inspection before sending them out the door. That does make me feel a lot better about the idea, but I still want to wait and see how they do in the long term before I jump in.
No problem, there shouldn't be longevity issue as the housings are the only Chinese part; the bulbs, ballasts and most of the wiring are from a company right here in the U.S. of A.

Just FYI, the lights you posted on the first page are NOT DOT APPROVED for the US market. They do not have the required side reflector in them. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 (FMVSS 108) This has been a requirement since Jan 1970.

Here is one company that got hit: DOPE, INC. IS RECALLING 42,540 COMBINATION CORNER AND BUMPER LAMP ASSEMBLIES OF VARIOUS PART NUMBERS SOLD FOR USE AS AFTERMARKET EQUIPMENT FOR VARIOUS PASSENGER VEHICLES. THESE HEADLAMPS FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." THESE LAMPS DO NOT CONTAIN THE REQUIRED AMBER SIDE REFLECTORS.

You might want to check into this before you get hammered by DOT for non compliance like several other companies in the past. $10,000 sales does not warrant $250,000 fines.

Don't worry when they are being sold they will be compliant with DOT specifications or sold for Off-Road use only.... We are assisting SMC with making them compliant to meet DOT specs.

Also I noticed both sets you posted, OEM and yours are both NOT DOT legal lights.

These are DOT legal headlights.



Marking these lights for "Offroad or Show use only" does not protect you or your comapny at all from legal fines.

jinstall, do you know what else is not DOT approved? MK1 Focus European bumpers.

Is anyone else throwing a fit about European bumpers, no. It's called car modding and that's a big downfall. There are lots of other OEM and aftermarket parts that are not DOT approved - does anyone care. I for one, do not care, I have a feeling that a lot of others feel the same way, we wouldn't be modding our cars if we did.

Pyro, you missed the point all together. This has to do with liability of the seller, NOT the buyer. Much like Motorex found themselves a few years ago.

BTW E-spec bumpers are DOT compliant as they meet the 2.5mph regualtion, only Canada has a requirement for 5mph impact bumpers and why the US got them as well. Canada dropped the 5mph in 2010 and the reason that the MK3 Focus uses the 2.5mph bumpers now. Much like your headlights you are selling you called them ST170's, which they are not, they are facelift lights, not ST170. ST170 lights are gray only.

what about Headlight covers.. Not street legal, but yet everyone ran them and the companies selling them for "off road use only" didnt get sued???


Also lighting reflective requirement does not indicate Amber for the front.


"SUBCHAPTER E. GENERAL LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS FOR VEHICLES

547.3215. USE OF FEDERAL STANDARD. Unless
specifically prohibited by this chapter, lighting, reflective
devices, and associated equipment on a vehicle or motor vehicle

(1) Rear side marker lamps required by Section 25100 may show red to the front.

(2) The color of foglamps described in Section 24403 may be in the color spectrum from white to yellow.

(3) An illuminating device, as permitted under Section 24255, shall emit radiation predominantly in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Any incidental visible light projecting to the front of the vehicle shall be predominantly yellow to white. Any incidental visible light projecting to the rear of the vehicle shall be predominantly red. Any incidental visible light from an illuminating device, as permitted under Section 24255, shall not resemble any other required or permitted lighting device or official traffic control device.

(b) The emitted light from all lamps and the reflected light from all reflectors, visible from the rear of a vehicle, shall be red except as follows:

Except for backup lamps, the entire effective projected luminous area of lamps visible from the rear or mounted on the sides near the rear of a vehicle shall be covered by an inner lens of the required color when the unlighted color differs from the required emitted light color. Taillamps, stoplamps, and turn signal lamps that are visible to the rear may be white when unlighted on vehicles manufactured before January 1, 1974.
