    the latest fashion of fitting blue light globes to parking or running lights in victoria will get you a ticket for $170, so be warned

    "modification outside the manufacturers specification"

    technically, they can get you for ANY mod you do to your car, even paint

    the blue driving lights in hondas are actually xenon white globes. they turn blue when goin over bumps. they are actually 100% legal.

    the issue i herd with blue parkers was that blue lights are reserved for emergency vehicles only. im sure that they wouldnt meet manufacturers specs eitha

    noone has really made any specific points about what will be/is banned....
    will xenon headlights be banned or the "condoms" you can put on normal headlights, will it be just the led parkers, window washer leds?...

    i dont' fully agree with that. why should the police let you off just because you have legal ones in the car. isn't that like riding a bike with the helmet on the handle bars?

    the thing is i havent been told by anyone of officialty that they're illegal, i asked the "ask the copper" yet no reply as yet so..... Went through a booze bus last night and nothing was said, so i would rather be safe than sorry and keep em in the car, on the off chance they are illegal and i do get pulled up for em...
    oh and i see what ya mean with the helmet theory.... but your comparing safety to cosmetic...

    xenons are legal as honda bmw mercedes jag use them in some of there cars that are factory. the only reason they change colour is when they go over a bump as they use blue and another colour to make the pure white light.

    blue parkers are illegal as they are the emergency vehicle colour.
