Anyone know the lights laws in california? If I change the amber turn signal and corner marking light bulbs for clear ones, am I risking a ticket?

In CA, you're fine if you change the front facing blinkers to clear, you just can't have any ricer blue or red lights facing forward. Your rear blinkers cannot be clear, they've got to be red or amber.

Good to know Adam, I always thought you had to have at least an amber bulb in the front. I need to change it out for a clear one now. :D

meh, when I put my clear turn signals in I just left the amber bulbs for turning...but I swaped out the DRL's for Hyper Yellow, and the little bulbs on the outter corner to xenon white.

I think i might be able to clear this up since i got a warning for this not too long ago. The white bulb is fine but your corners need to have a reflector ub the light housing.

Dont ever use red i got busted and given a nice size fine for "impersonating an emergency vehicle." This was in my old blazer it looked awesome kinda like snake eyes. i had them like that for months until i ran into the first dickhead cop. He also gave ma ticket for no front license plate and he harrassed the girl i was with at the time. bc curfew is at 12:00 am for 16 an under and he pulled me over at 11:50. i was no joke 200 feet from my house. and by the time he did all his bs it was past twelve. He then asked her for her id and she was only 16 so he took her out put her in the cop car called her mom scared the shit out of her and her mom and that right there is why i hate the Tomball police department bc everyone i know has a story like this.

Just change the Middle Blinker bulb to regular WHite. No Hyper white Ricer Crap. It looks clean slightly offwhite, and they all match up.
