Lights & reflectors are color coded by law to show other drivers which way the car is going.

Change that & any accident could be blamed on you, whoever would otherwise be at fault.

Tickets aside, I wouldn't recommend it.

Red is for tails only and since you live in the land of traffic Nazis I definitely would just stick with amber.

For me, it depends more on how your planning on painting it? Legally, it's only the bulb that will get you in trouble; it doesn't really matter what color the headlights are painted.

So how do you want to do it? Painting on the outside of the light wouldn't look good at all IMO. However, if you can open the headlights up and paint the reflector inside, that would look more professional, and on a black car, could look really good.
