$14 from Autobarn there the new l.e.d ones just realised you just put them in where the original parkers are. There located just under the main bulb in the headlights. They come in about 8 colours and theres one with 7 colours in it and one with 10. well worth it i think.

In qld : Not allowed to have ANY under car neons and not allowed to have ANY coloured lights facing forwards, except amber indicators, or yellow foggies (must only be used in fog) - coloured parkers and coloured windscreen washers are illegal in any colour.

You can save money and just buy the silicon sleeves they are $2 a pack in red blue or green and you get 5 sleeves to do ur park globes with, hence 3 spare...

I got the blue sleeves on mine and ahvent had any hassles from coppas...yet hehe

Better than paying $10 for a pair of colored ones

I don't even have parkers in my car and i've never been picked up for it...

But they're right, no other colours than white or amber indicators. And yellow for fog lights but there must be poor weather conditions to drive with ANY fog lights on.

YES, you can't drive around on a fine night with fog lights, i was warned about it when i was driving the old mans Subaru Liberty.

I got done not 8 hrs after rego'ing my car for blue parkers - didnt know they were there until the cops did me for them. $75 and 1 point for "Driving a car that does not comply" in particular "Blue Park Lights". Legislation is such that ANY external light on a car is illegal EXCEPT - white/yellow headlights/parkers/foglights at the front of the car only; yellow/orange turn signals; red brake/parker at the rear of the car only; and white reverse lights at the rear of the car only - ANY other external lights are in breach of this legislation and will get you a fine if that cops think you deserve it - interestingly enough INTERNAL lights in the car may be of ANY colour, but the only ones that are allowed to be on while the car is in motion are the dash illumiation lights (ie, not allowed interior light on while driving).

InsaneVL - Just commenting on the Interior lights that can only be on while driving being Dash Lights, what do you reckon they'd say with a Reading Light for a map in the passenger seat etc? Curious, because theres some dodgy laws around.

I had those washer jet LED things on mine .. blue originally .. got pulled over by cops, they spent 10 mins going thru theyr book in the car, and eventually found no laws saying they coudlnt do it (apparantly it violates ADRs tho), so they booked me for a towball blocking the number plate ..
Iv since changed them to green, and driven past, behind, and next to cops many times and never had a second look .. i think its just the colours theyr worried about .. emergency colours (and red on the front isnt the cleverest idea anyway, as you woudlnt wanna be mistaken for a rear end of a car..)

just been lookint up the actual laws that govern what lights you can have. seems i've mis-read some of it. in the Transport Operations (Road Use Management - Vechicle Standards and Safety) Regulation 1999, here are a few of the laws governing the colour of particular lights. take note of the few end ones (in bold )


In particular, here are a *few* of the regulations pulled out of it to cover what needs to be covered for what colour may be where.

Quote:
SCHEDULE 1

Part 7 - LIGHTS AND REFLECTORS

63 - Performance of headlights
(1) When on, a headlight, or additional headlight, fitted to a motor vehicle must -
. (a) show only white light
. (b) project its main beam of light ahead of the vehicle.

66 - Parking lights
(6) When on, a parking light must -
. (a) show white or yellow light visible 200 m from the front of the motor vehicle; and
. (b) not use over 7 W.

71 - Performance of tail lights
(1) When on, a tail light of a vehicle must -
. (a) show a red light visible 200m from the rear of the vehicle; and
. (b) not use over 7 W.
(2) A tail light fitted to a street rod vehicle may incorporate a blue lens not over 20mm in diameter.

73 - Number plate lights
(3) When on at night, the number plate light must illuminate a number plate on the rear of a vehicle with white light, so the characters on the number plate can be read at least 20 m from the rear of the vehicle.
(4) A number plate light -
. (a) may be combined with other light; and
. (b) must not project white light to the rear of the vehicle other than by reflection; and

84 - Reversing lights
(3) When on, a reversing light must show a white or yellow light to the rear or to the side and rear of the vehicle.
(6) A yellow reversing light may also operate as a direction indicator light.

88 - Operation and visibility of direction indicator lights
(3) The flashes of light displayed by a direction indicator light must be -
. (a) if the light faces forwards - white or yellow; and
. (b) if the light faces backwards -
. . (i) yellow; or
. . (ii) if a vehicle was built before July 1973 - yellow and red; and
. (c) if the light faces out from the side of the vehicle -
. . (i) white or yellow towards the front and side; and
. . (ii) if a vehicle was built before July 1973 - yellow and red towards the rear and side; and
. . (iii) if a vehicle was built after July 1973 - yellow towards the rear and side.

91 - Interior lights
A Vehicle may be fitted with interior lights that illuminate any interior part of the vehicle.

104 - Other lights and reflectors
(1) Despite any requirement of a third edition ADR -
. (a) an exempt vehicle may be fitted with any light or reflector; and
. (b) any special use vechicle may be fitted with 1 or more flashing yellow lights; and
. (c) a sugar cane trailer or a vehicle towing it may be fitted with 1 or more flashing yellow or green lights.
(2) A vehicle other than a Police vehicle, must not be fitted with a blue light except with the written permission of the commissioner.
(3) A vehicle may be fitted with any light or reflector not mentioned in these standards.
(4) A vehicle, other than an exempt vehicle, special use vehicle or sugar cane trailer or a vehicle towing it, must not be fitted with a light that flashes.
(5) A vehicle, other than an exempt vehicle, must not be fitted with a light or reflector that -
. (a) shows a red light to the front; or
. (b) shows a white light to the rear; or
. (c) is shaped or located in a way that reduces the effectiveness of a light or reflector that is required to be fitted to a vehicle under these standards.
in essance, you can have any light on your car, as long as the headlights, park lights, tail lights, indicators, etc, are the correct colour - and as long as the lights are not blue. so green lights on the windscreen wipers are fine (in qld), but blue are not.
