dude u live in Germantown- Germany is the country of laws, laws...anyway-the european celica does not have side markers at all!! the's just a clear additional turnsignal in the fender right behind the wheel! that's itWhere I live, clear corners (amber bulb or not) are a cop magnet.
i dont know about all that...i see a TON of cars that have no side markers at all......alphasubzero949 said:Well...I might as well post a follow-up since my last post before this thread was resurrected...
Hmmm...for nearly a year I have had APC frosted clear corners with amber bulbs. I have had countless CHP officers roll up beside me (on motorcycle and by car) at night and never once have they questioned me about them. On the other hand, I've been screwed over in the daytime. I'm risking a $10 fix it ticket whenever I'm out in the day, because you DO have to have amber-reflecting side markers.
My car is converted to look exactly like this. There are no corner markers (the ones on the bumper). Instead, I have European Toyota side markers installed.FloWin_Celica said:dude u live in Germantown- Germany is the country of laws, laws...anyway-the european celica does not have side markers at all!! the's just a clear additional turnsignal in the fender right behind the wheel! that's it
Actually, this particular bulb and concept was the topic of heavy conversation on a (believe it or not) RAV4 performance message board. What people were doing with their clear corners, instead of paying for the Philips silver bulbs (which as I understood were outrageous) is to take a high-temp silver spraypaint, and paint their amber bulbs with them. Apparently the amber will glow through the silver well enough, but during the day they look perfectly clear. However, the legality of these was never addressed, but I guess that it DID work...Da Kine Guy said:Gotta be amber. At least in CA that's the way I read it when I did a search on the government site. Philips makes a bulb "Silver Something" that looks silver but glows orange. Might wanna try that to keep the clear look and not mess it up with reflective orange in there. I was thinking about doing that to the Celi turn signals when I had it, don't have much of a choice now
