13 headlight question

I hate the yellow lights that come on when you unlock the car, have any of you guys changed them?

Considering it's all in the body control module or what ever other computer controls the turn signals on these beasts, I doubt it can be fixed without completely rewiring the turn signals themselves. Nothing is mechanical and on a switchboard anymore. All fancy, smancy, puter programmy.

Wow that's an awesome way to go at it, I was thinking of changing the color of the bulb

It's a front turn signal... If you make it anything but yellow, you're liable to get a ticket.

Locate the bulb type from your owners manual, then google it to see other options. You'll most likely find that a bulb for it is made in other colors, LED, or both (LED various colors.

You can put colored tint over the lights

Isn't that something that you control through the dash? I'm pretty sure on my 11 I can change that with the dash buttons, but I don't remember for sure

I have spent a few hours playing with all the different settings in the car and I never saw that. But my car is the base model
