when you look at the picture of the green halos they look like they have mounting holes but the white halos with the covers just look like its a thicker ring

Most states are very strict about what color lights are on your car.

Blue lights are supposed to designate emergency vehicles, such as police, ambulances, fire trucks, etc.

Green lights are used on signals as go, and though its far-fetched, some would say that they can confuse people. IE, green light = go.

So, id say to be safe, no go on the green lights, go yellow or white.

I would just remove it. Trust me, you dont want that kind of attention. You'll get pulled over for it eventually then ticketed for random other things. Its happened to me before.

In some states green can be used by fire chiefs and volunteer EMT's so this can still be considered an emergency vehicle color. You'll most likely just get a ticket for illegal/improper lighting.

I used to see green lights on taxi cabs. It meant the cab was empty and available. If the cab was in use, they would use red. I think they were on the roof lights.

Pizza-hut and Dominoes both have blue on their delivery car box lighty things as well, and here in CA, they were required to remove the bulbs from them. Im not 100% on the laws, as im sure they change from state to state, but either way, the best option is to go the safe route. Dont give police another reason to pull you over.


Also, after re-reading the post.. $350 for shitty ebay lights with hids in projector housings is pretty friggin hysterical. You can pick up a set of Machs for that price. THe ebay lights will burn the projector housings, and even new, the output will be worse than a stock reflector housing. THe Machs however, are about as good an output as you can get for our cars.
