Now I have heard a few different things about this. One thing is that as long as the bulb is amber you are good to go. The other is that you must have an amber reflector in order to be legal.

Sooo, say I get clear corners for my car, but add some of Oznium's oval amber LED Lamps to my bumpers, kinda like other cars have, would that make/ keep me legal?

The guys over at Aleromod.com (me included) pretty all have/had clear corners with Silverstar bulbs (kinda blue-ish in non-lit color, but light up orange).

To clear our corners one has to pop out that orange reflector, thus getting rid of that required reflector.
I can't recall any one of us ever being pulled over for it.

I'd say just clear em', get some silverstar bulbs, and call it a day. Unless cops are super picky in your area or something.

Technically most places require the reflector, however I haven't ever seen anyone get pulled over just for clear corners - mainly it was a colored bulb.

I've been running "hyperwhite" bulbs for a couple years now with no hassles, so as long as it isn't really blue or something I think you'll be okay.

They can't be tinted either, so if the light is amber not being blocked, than your good.

I never thought your corner lights could be illegal? lol Ive had clears on my car with red bulbs and nothing has happened in a little over a year (knock on wood)...lol And I dont think there is a reflector in mine. I look at now as, if they want to pull me over for that, then thats sad...there are bigger problems to worry about then a little bulb and reflector! icon_smile.gif

My buddy had red turn signals in his car for abour 4 months before he got pulled over and givin $105 ticket. This one kid I know had deep blue bulbs in his corner forever and has never been bothered. It just depends on the cop. Most states, you can only have white and amber in the front.

clear corners are the way to go, they will clean up the front of a light or dark colored vehicle greatly... as for my clears, i just went to walmart, looked up the normal white bulb, then found the amber colored one for like 50 cents more

I have those silverstar amber bulbs. The bulb is a metalic/clear blue but it lights up orange. I like them,
