Ew, that'd be bad.

I dont have it because I used the stock bulbs. Which are clear, these lights came with amber bulbs.

Clear bulbs+amber lens=amber light output with ugly amber lenses
amber bulbs+clear lens=amber light output with ugly egg yolks

So I used the stock clears to avoid the egg yolk look. The other way to do it is to paint the amber bulbs silver, this way they still light up amber but dont look ugly. That was too much work for me though

Half the time, unless they're Traffic Cops, they haven't a clue about vehicle laws lol

I don't have to tell it to him, YOU can print that shit out and have his badge in court. You have to have the nads to point out where he's wrong, and if he writes you up, and you take this to court, it goes bad for him. BTDT.

Late last year I had an officer pull me over in the McDonald's parking lot after I had made a U turn at the end of a barrier to get there. He said "didn't you se that big 'No U-turn' sign right there? And I said, "didn't you see the times listed on that sign? 7-9AM, 4-6 PM Monday -Friday?" he said, but it's Friday now!" and I said, "yeah, but it's noon"

The facts sometimes need to be pointed out to them on the spot. They don't know everything.

lol, I thought he knew what he was talking about and I wasn't going to bitch at him since he was just giving me a verbal anyway. The last thing I need is more problems caused by tickets and court dates. But now that I know I know.
