Colored Halos, who's got em?

Ive seen a lot of hate on here regarding the use of colored halos but I just stuck some red LED halos in and my god they look gorgeous. Any one else got em?

Pretty sure red or blue lights in the front of your car is illegal. Good luck with those.

They are.. a little fix it ticket never hurt anyone. Modifying your car in most respects is illegal whether its exhaust intake bov or even a tune. Just avoid being an ass and youll get off with a slap on the wrists. Plus i had a cop stop me on my way to lunch, he thought they were badass.

Haha not typical logic. Pretty sure a cop isn't going to know I'm driving down the street with catless downpipes. Pretty sure you will have a ticket in less than a month. Nothing against you just saying those willl be cop magnets, it's not like dark tints.

I didn't expect it to be great but those don't even light the outer ring in the shade. pretty disappointing imo all other things aside.

looks like you got the shittiest version.,
i assume you got these
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-Red-6W-BM...c6b384&vxp=mtr
i think colored halos look like shit, but you have like a 5w version.
they make 20w now that would light up both rings.
again they look like a 17 year old kid drives the car now.

and if the cop wants to be a dick, its not a fix-it ticket.....its a "impersonating a police officer ticket.
that is not something id want to deal with
these are the ones you should get they will work better

Good luck with the shit storm of tickets you will get, up to and including stiff penalties for impersonating an emergency vehicle.

Get the wrong cop on the wrong day, and your day could get really shitty really fast, depending upon where you live.

Its not impersonating a police officer and even if it was thatd be a really easy one to fight. You guys give the police too much credit

Even if it is, I personally would prefer to not spend the day fighting a ticket I could've completely avoided.

Having said that, yeah it looks pretty good. Especially on SGM

I saw a Dodge truck a few weeks ago that had halos that changed colors every few seconds. Talk about annoying.
