You can use any led with the correct butt (sorry for the technical term)

Yes, it is illegal. Specially if you are in Clark, NJ.

Legally you can not have red or blue lights facing the front of a non-emergency vehicle.

I don't know how all the Ricers get away with the blue washer nozzles.

I ran Hyper-White LEDs in my City Light slots at one time (168 base wedge bulbs for your reference)...and I got pulled over by a cop who didn't like em, thinking they were too blue. I tried to BS with him, saying I was a VW tech and these are factory, but he didn't buy it. I drove away without a ticket though.

Red would be blatantly asking a cop to pull you over...I wouldn't suggest putting em in, unless you are at a show or something.

My friends' ex was telling me that he was driving his friends civic and got pulled over for that. THe only reason he didn't get a ticket is cause it wasn't his car.

I was rocking red city lights for a while, but they turned orange cause they were the really cheap crappy ones from autozone. I switched them out for regular ones for now. I would like to get hyperwhite leds. check this out:

If you remember that picture of the riced-to-the-max, F&F-wantabe Mk3 jetta I posed a couple months ago, I am pretty sure he has red city lights. Or red something, because I saw them when he decided to tailgate me.

hmm red lights, i do not know where you can get them from, i have blue lights in mine, and i have never been pulled over for them, but i do know that no matter what color you put in it is illegal. only ones that are not legal are your stock lights. oh and just a reminder your car will not pass inspection with colored lights , so please make sure that you keep your originals for inspection time.

I can't believe that not even one person remembered that I run red LEDS?

Don't buy bulbs (even the red glass ones) they will fade.

Buy L E D and you can get them everywhere. I got mine from TM Tuning. tmtuning.com
