    As the heading says I am considering it or colour coding the top half of my m3 Rears so in the eyes of the law would it be legal?

    All relevant bulbs would be the correct colours too

    Pics of any cars out there would be useful too as I haven't seen many with this mod apart from the white slammed coupe that has appeared on the forum with amber uppers on his lights.


    Have considered relocating my numberplate now too

    Cheers Andy c

    This is quite a common mod for the VW boys. You will find though that even with an amber bulb fitted the lamps will still flash red resulting in getting regular tugs from the filth. To get around this you have to fit amber LED's that flash much brighter and the light emitted throught the lamps is then the correct amber colour
