Why the fck do you have blue lights? You are not police officers. Imagine if your car had blue and red lights/fog lamps - someone might think they are cop cars.

People who have blue lights as fog lights or in their headlights or even those people with aftermarket 8k xenons deserve to get fined!

Sorry I thought you had blue lights and yes there are people who have blue lights installed - it looks like the king of rice!

Regarding your bulbs, are they coated or when you look at them (turned off) do they look bluish? I have the same but 4300k PIAA and use them as my high beams. Though, they match my low beams 100% so you can't tell the difference.

At the end of the day it all depends on the mood of the cop

I got a friend in SHJ who intentionally fitted his xenons in his fogs to keep the headache away.. Nobody ever stopped him..

N talkin about moods:
Some bored dubai cop fined me cuz I was warning pedestrians, for the sake of their safety and well being, not to cross the road while i was doing 40km/h... 1st fine i get for obeying the law..
Asked them why and how as soon as that license landed in his hands he teleported towards his patrol car and got the fine book, never saw a fine issued with such a speed and such a good hand writing...
Seemed it was fantasy land or Tokyo or something.. Is this the muroor week lately by any chance? or probably he had funky time last nite...

Warning pedestrians? How did you do that? If you were being a good citizen and giving way then by all means go to the police and complain or write in to the papers.

Just get yellow fog lights - cops can't do shit! I have them in my headlights as the really low beams (you know when you first flick on your lights - you get the small ones coming on)

They usually look for those extra bright xenons that blind people around.. the ones without a diffuser..

oooh yeah go slow near pedestrian crossing - even if there is 1 guy give him way. Cops fine people a lot for this - seen it happen often in Satwa.
