    The auction has ended so cant see what you mean, but I think any blue lights are illegal as it could be confused with the emergency services

    They would fail an MOT. Anything than a substantially white or yellow light at the front is a fail

    They are illegal, a blue light cannot be on any vehicle other than one that is from one of the emergency services.

    This goes for inside as well as outside

    Like steve23002 said it would fail the MOT as would blue LED sidelights

    They seem a decent ebayer, so if you return them as they are delivered you should be able to swap
