Don't do it, simple as that. You're just asking to get pulled over, cops show very little leniency when it comes to blue or red lights up front.

What about red side markers instead of the orange? You weren't at Coma cruise, working?

Correct I was not, not working, hopefully we do something again in a couple months and I'll have a lot to show off

Red sidemarkers are probably just as bad. The worst thing you can do is red any place other than the tail lights.

Never thought about the cops not liking that idea. I'm going to have to look and see if it's any kind of law.

I know a lot of laws vary from state to state, but it's pretty much a given that you can't have anything but white or amber up front. Good luck, though.

What and heck does having red angel eyes have anything to do with wanting to look like a cop car, that's foolish.

Most state rules say you can't have RED lights on the front of your car (reserved for emergency vehicles only).
You can try running the lights but its a huge heat score so you will probably be pulled over and ticketed quickly.

Red or Blue in Florida guarantee a ticket. Color change would be a good idea, or just stick with colors in your state that wont land you in trouble. Florida I can get away with Green, Purple, and other off the wall colors. As for Red in front, I think thats every state

I was told by a cop that red is legal as long is it doesn't flash (i.e. red blinkers). AE should be safe, but would check with your local law.

i can tell you it is a $300 fine here in michigan, not a fix it ticket either. had lights that were "too blue" in the front of my previous car (they were supposed to be white). $300 ticket, fought it luckily the cop didn't show so they threw out the ticket. Changed the bulbs back to stock after that
