hey i'm out her in nor. cali bay area...my my euro lights i'm using hybrid blubs..which look hyper white color looks eye catching. i have not been pulled over once for them. I have been pulled for a speeding ticket on the freeway and i signaled to go to the shoulder land & the chp didnt even care bout the color. I thought he would say something but just ticket me for 80 in a65 and left


I have clears w/ orange bulbs, I think it looks good. That's how the euro e36's have them if you care...many on this board have clears w/ orange bulbs.

Hi guys,

I was driving my 325i tonight and I noticed this car speeding up catching up to me. He followed me a bit and then when I made a right turn, the cop pulled me over. I stopped, turn on the dome lights, shut off the engine, and put my hands on
the steering wheel as he walked up.

Cop: "How're we doin tonight?"
Me: "Hi officer"
Cops: Looks at my car... then "You know, those clear tail lights that you have, you need to change the clear bulb to amber color bulbs because it blinds the hell out of whoever's behind you."
Me: Nodding my head "Yes yes.. I'll get it changed"
Cop: "Alright, have a good night."
Me: "Thanks thanks"

I have 2 speeding tickets already, one more ticket and I can't drive for 6 months. Scared the shit out of me. But, no warnings and no fix it tickets. Anybody have similar experience? Did you get amber bulbs? Does the car look wussy after the bulb change?

Thanks,
Jimmy
'95 325i with mods
