Red Leds Bad Idea?

I have the gen 3 projecters. i took the blue leds out of the bottom and put 3 red in each side. I just thought. the cops might not like that. what do you think? just say they came in the headlights and i can turn them off or remove them? ;)

As far as I know most states have a law where red and blue lights can only be on emergency vehicles, so the cops might give you sh*t about it. You might get a ticket but if you tell them they came that way and turn them off, you'll probably just get a warning.

agreed.

it's like a $700 fine here for operating blue or red lights (other than brake lights) on a moving vehicle.
