Didn't know you could change them. The only ones I've seen are either a cool white or amber.

I'm pretty sure that the "Halo" is either a CCFL or an LED...more specific...a lot of LED's in a circle. Either way I'm pretty sure (not 100%) that you would have to replace the entire halo assy. to accomplish what you are asking. Requires baking the light assy and removing the clear outer lens. Hope that helps.

The name or type of housing might help someone give you an answer.

Check the goto for lighting on the forum TheRetrofitSource. Just pick the color and size of your halos.

Google search brought up Oracle, online catalog

Pretty sure you'll have to take apart your headlights to replace them, these are my retrofitted blue halos

Where did you get your blue halos from? Only ones I've found are white and amber. Do they have an assortment of colors?

I clicked on the link to retrofitsource and only saw white and amber listed. Either way they don't have green so I'm no too interested lol.

Just an FYI on the colored halo's....you may want to check with your local laws regarding the use of certain "off color" stuff like that. In Ohio, blue is reserved for law enforcement/ emergency personnel use "Only". I have issued citations for this. Yes it looks cool and different but there is a reason it's reserved and it's not so you can look cool swagging.....just a $.01... carry on.

Green would be something you don't see often. Again, before proceeding I would do a bit of research. A few minutes on the net may save you a couple hundred in fines. If you are an informed citizen and know what you can and can't do, it allows you to push the envelope a bit, but yet be in the right.

I know certain colors are reserved for emergency response vehicles which is why I haven't looked to much into doing green because I know green use to be reserved for forestry vehicles back in the day, at least all of my dads forestry vehicles had green and white lights. When the time comes though I'll be sure to definitely look into the laws before hand.

Only white and amber in front of vehicle by US federal regulations. All states have a law that says all lights and reflectors must follow federal regulations. So outside of exempted lighting like police lights they can't be another color and be on while on the road.
