    Welcome to the forum! I must say, I have always been a fan of the BHLM but those headlights look really good!

    being in CA law requires you to have the amber corner reflectors.
    but you can hope to not get caught :D

    I have a pair that I'm trying to sell (haven't posted it yet). We may even be able to avoid shipping costs.

    If you're interested, shoot me a PM

    I've had mine for 3+ years and it's never been a problem (knock on wood). If a cop really wants to be a jerk they can site you for it, but they're cool for the most part

    no idea why? maybe so you can tell what part is the front of the vehicle?
    I looked up the laws regarding lighting/reflectors in CA when I was shopping for headlights.:notsure:
    but yeah they most likely wont stop you for it..but they can write a fix-it

Theres more I just cant think of it right now.
    Ive had the Clear Headlight Mod for just about 4 years. I have never been bothered by the 5-0. You do this mod just like the BHLM. But you just remove the amber lenses.

    I'm not sure what you're asking.

    To do the CHLM, open up the headlights and remove the plastic amber lens.
    To do the BHLM, open up the headlights and paint the bezel black, taking out the amber lens is optional at that point
