Of course it's possible. Worst case, you have to open the lights and solder in LEDs of your choice/color. I've seen people change all the dash/hvac lights by disassembling every part and soldering on the circuit boards. Easy? No. Possible? Definitely.

Have you had any luck with this?


Can you post a pic of your headlights stock?

What color are you thinking?

I have been thinking about adding some blue LEDs to my 2012!

Blue lights on the front of your car """WOW"""

I'm sure they will look great. I'm really sure the police officer is going to just plain love them. Yep, Blue lights on the front of any car is a Cop's dream come true.

I don't care what state you live in. Using blue lights is not legal at all.

Blue and red are illegal here. However, I've seen one guy with the red Camaro halos that are inside the headlight. He doesn't turn them off when he's driving around. I'm curious if he's gotten pulled over yet.

They are only illegal if it looks like you are trying to imitate a police car.

As long as they aren't the main headlights you use for driving you should be good.

I have flashing blue lights in my 99 jeep cherokee that I could get in trouble for. They make the whole inside glow blue and pulsate with the bear of the music. And that is something I could get pulled over for.

Not something as trivial as accent lights, especially if they don't look anything like bright blue flashing lights on too of a police car.

Tell that to the Police officer as he is calling a tow truck to haul your beautiful Mustang with the pretty blue lights on the front of it away. They are not allowed and although they look great. They will get you in very serious trouble.

Here in my area they really don't like blue lights under the car while it is moving. I have known of tickets being given for that but I don't think a ticket would even be thought of if the blue lights were on the front of the car.

Well regardless it looks good...., and it's up the person....

But I am aware of my areas local laws.

What I would do for exterior blue lights would be something more along the lines of the ice blue. Not the dark blue that even resembles a cop car.

Anyways..... To the OP, have you Gotton your green lights yet??

Just be sure to say this to the cop when he/she pulls you over....let us know how that works out!

It's tough enough for younger drivers out there with Mustangs, Comaros, and other sports cars. Adding stuff like this only adds attention to the police. Is it really worth it?

oracle lighting has those that you can change color from the driver's seat. you could have them in green or any LEGAL color until you get to a show...then change to red or blue...or what im saving up for...color shift on slow settings and get to do even more radical things. Going to wire up Slimer with RGB led's for under the car and behind the grille with the same concept. Plenty of possabilites out there

Doing a nice show type lighting- Yes

At a car show it is great to have extreme lighting, Blue, red or any other color always is a show stopper.
******************But********************************

Driving down a public highway with any blue lights showing will get you stopped. If you have blue lights on the front of your car you will probably be impounded which means a nice tow charge as well as the impound fee. If they are blinking you will probably go to jail.

If you have them so you can turn them off it will be up to the cop that stops you. I would not count on him turning you loose with blue lights hooked up on the front of your car though.

Hi Dozer 13

Any other color then White or amber for the front turn signals is totally illegal in the state of Florida. Red or Amber is for rear turn signals.

A blue dot in the center of a tail light is not legal here in Florida.

Absolutely no Blue lights are Legal at all on your car or Motorcycle in Florida.
I live in Florida and actually read the Florida Drivers Manual. I also know from experience that no blue lights are or ever were allowed in Florida on any vehicle except Police Vehicles.

It's your car and you can do what you want but please inform us when you get your first ticket.

I'm with you on this one Ronnie. Why even risk it. You know there is going to be that one "by the book" cop that is having a bad day. If he doesn't ticket you for the lights he may find some other stupid infringement to get you for. I would personally stick with white or amber... Honestly think it would look just as ba!

Another thing to think about is, it may be legal in your area/state but not in others. One day you may find yourself on a road trip, and come home with a nasty fine.

The big problem with blue lights is:::

If you can not turn them off the police will definitely tow your vehicle away. I sold Motorcycle parts for 27 years and have actually known this has happened more then once to guys coming down to Daytona with small blue lights on the front of their Motorcycles. The cop that stops them is having a bad day or just got a hard on for everybody is not about to give you a break.

Ask the kid with the civic with the fart box what happened when he put blue lights under his car. They impounded his car. Tow charge, impound fee's and the wrath of his Father caused him to remove the lights.

The Motorcycle people that got tickets for blue dot tail lights over one bike week would probably cut the national debt in half.

My advise is do not use blue lights on your vehical If you do decide to put any green or yellow be sure you have a switch to turn them off. Just don't mess with Blue unless it is just for show when you are off the public streets.
