My 2013 Accord sedan EX-L V6 w/ customer lights

Here is a video of my new accord. I added 5000K HID's low beam and fog lights. LED front and rear turn signals. The ones I purchased accelerate the blinking of the lights. Full LED lights in the interior, reverse lights and the license plate bulbs. Working on wiring the OEM LED DRL lights to stay on high power all the time. Also tinted the windows %35. Looking for drop springs w/ struts. Amazing car. Best accord made to date !!!

Nice car! Loving the lights. Just wondering where you got the rear turn signals from? And what size did u get? I tried both 7443 and 7440 and it does not fit

White signal lights in the rear is stupid. I doubt that the car will pass inspection with that fast blinking rate.

In my opinion this looks bad. First, the white color is confusing as hell. This may be dangerous. Second, in my book the high rate blinking means something is broken. Does anyone know if DOT has specific color requirements for turn signals? Not sure amber is best practice or a specific requirement.

To each his own.

The front turn signal headlights are very confusing if I were another driver...I can see that being very dangerous in some situations, and if an accident were to occur, I would assume you would be liable.

Something good, something good....oh, your tint looks nice.

I'm too lazy to dig it up, but MOST states require turn signal/indicators to be amber/orange. There can be NO white light to the rear of the vehicle. (license plate lights don't face the rear, they face down).
This is true for Texas, I'm sure others will chime in.

My first thought too.... Here in NYC they would love to pull you over for this, the fines are so high...
jdmbubble...can you switch the turn signal LED's to amber?

I don't understand.....

Even when I struggle, I find it difficult to comprehend the infatuation with automotive lighting customization, much of which may be illegal.

Maybe, that old, worn-out Harley-Davidson response applies.....

If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand.

I like how we are being civil while presenting our concerns. I thought this would be another "tinted taillights kill babies" thread.

I don't think it's so much about being civil…. it's just that our face tends to get sore after repeated face palms……...

Front turn signals have to be amber. Rear have to be either red/amber. This law applies to most of all the States in the US. Thus, any white turn signals are illegal.

sidenote: someone needs some resistors to slow those down.

Agreed! I think I'm gonna have a seizure looking at it!

And I'm also more concerned that other drivers might not be able to tell the difference between the low beams and front turn signals when it's night time. They might think you are flashing them or something.
