Has anyone removed the amber blinker filters from their headlight assy? Just something I was thinking of doing if I put in projectors.
4 days in and I'm waiting on 500 in lights and parts to come in...haha My fiance only thought I got crazy with my tC and Civic.... HAHAHA

does anyone have pics of a kit like this being used, or is it crap? I thought the grey might look nice... any thoughts?

Smoking tailights tonight, coming soon: full LED conversion in back and interior, chrome amber bulbs, decepticon re-badging, audi led headlamp liners

If you do remove the amber filters you will need to use amber color bulbs if you live in the USA. Its a DOT requirement for the front turn indicator lights to be that shade of color. There is a possibility that the rear turn indicators might be going to amber color in the future since the NHSTA tests showed more then a 5% reduction in rear end collision when amber was used in the rear also.

I have the chrome bulbs that are amber when they light up, I just was thinking about taking out the amber plastic piece. I think it'd look cleaner. As far as tails going to amber I hope not. Has anyone changed the bulbs in the mirrors bc I'd like the change them too.

I think BlackWatch has switched out the bulbs in the mirrors for some blue LED's. I forget what the bulb size is. I've been trying to find a dual changing LED for the mirrors that would keep them on as white while the headlights are on and turn amber when the turn signal is on. Can't find a way as of yet though...

Take pictures of your completions please or even a do it yourself guide. :)
