Never heard of anyone getting busted, guess it depends how anal th police officer is

TACOsupremacy 01-30-2012 10:04 PM

Yeah they ask you to remove the HIDs as far as LEDs they will pass you if you have those for like your license plate or reverse and stuff

808TRDTaco10 01-31-2012 12:16 PM

Are LEDs technically illegal? I'm running LED fog lights thats why, along with reverse, license plate, etc.

I don't think LEDs are illegal, especially not if they're the same colour as your standard markers ie. yellow for blinkers or side markers. I used to switch mine back to yellow for safety inspect and then put my white lights back in after just in case. Fogs I doubt they care that much.

Nope. I ordered them online from V-LED's. Their stuff's pretty expensive, but you can tell it's top quality stuff.

One day when I grow up I'll try installing projectors. You did them yourself? Looks super good, brah.

I missed your post, yeah I did it myself. But went to get safety check hoping it would pass....














NOPE!

It's a good thing I have a spare stock set. I guess I gotta remove them every year for safety checks. After driving with projectors, I can't go back to stock!

HI TACO 66 05-08-2012 01:21 AM

just did mine too this pass weekend, good i already got my safety

Konaborne 05-08-2012 01:24 AM

Im glad I have friends in the auto business! :D!!

holokai 05-08-2012 09:47 AM

So what, all the guys with projectors going chip in to buy a spare set to swap for safety check on Oahu? =P

I could see how HIDs with the reflector bowl could be illegal but projectors are in all kinds of vehicles. My girlfriends Scion TC has stock projectors. I would be extremely surprised if you didnt pass with projectors.

It didn't pass! The mechanic says "projectors is ok but the HID's that go in them are not". He said that of your car doesn't come stock with HID's, you are not allowed to install them for street use. I agree on the projectors not blinding to oncoming traffic but nobody told the people who write the safety inspection laws. Just gotta back door the system l like everything else here!

Safety check and recon are a joke. I agree with your sentiment on projectors being able to pass. Ah well.....time to get an inside connection for S/C.
