In michigan they are illegal. something about resembling police lights.

from a distance the tail lights have a purple glow or halo untell you get close. then they appear normal, just something that i have seen on some hot rods around town might be a cool affect just woundering if anyone tried it and how it looks

They are illegal in a some states. Although I am not a fan of them, they do look cool on some rides...not sure how you would make it look right on our cars with the tail light set up that we have.

That's a 50s-era thing. Would ptobably seem out of place to most on a Mustang.

Florida allows "blue dots" on cars over 25 years old and on "custom built vehicles" and "street rods". Motorcycles aren't specifically included or excluded.

I kinda agree with Kit on this one though. IMO, the design of our tail lights doesn't lend itself well to adding blue dots.

that is how im feeling about it, kinda on the fence ,at $100.00 a lens it could be costly to try it and not like it. it was just a thought

I tho I've seen them as stickons for those who don't want to drill their lenses.
