"demon eyes"

Does anyone know how to make the car have "demon eyes" (red ring around headlight) instead of angel eyes? Is it a bulb, is coding, if you get some red bulb to make the ring red can you still get the headlights to be bright at night? I've seen it done on a few cars and thought it looked pretty cool.

Any insight would help! Thanks

It would just be a simple swap of the stock bulb H8 35W bulb to a red one.

Pretty sure it's illegal though.

Just a bulb swap. Here is an LED version and a regular bulb version.

You'd have to switch them out every time you wanted to change color.

These ones actually change color:

But they look like they're for the new 3 series. Not sure if they work on the older cars.

Red lights in the front of the car are illegal because it's reserved for law enforcement

When they say that red lights at the front of your car are illegal, they're illegal at ANY time of day. Red lights are reserved for "Emergency" vehicles (police, fire, EMT). Sounds like you've been watching too many vampire shows...

Yeah thx for the 4th round of telling me this, did you know that under glow on your car is illegal also? And yet people still do it......no one is telling you to break the law but I live outside the lines and am willing to take a chance. I appreciate the concern tho. I'm also not sure when vampires got mentioned??

I'm not sure about the cops that patrol "outside the lines" but the authorities here in the normal world will likely take front mounted red lights a little more seriously than some purple under-car neon.

And under-car neon isn't just illegal, it's immoral.

I've been driving with Red Angel Eyes for a few months now .. I did them for fun one day and ended up leaving them on. The HID's are so bright that at night you can't really tell the red is there.

I'll probably end up swapping them out since it doesn't look too good with the amber corners and HIDs during the day .. Too many colors ..

Did you really just say that you "live outside the lines?". Really? Don't ask the questions if you don't want the answers. Folks are just trying to help out.

underbody neons aren't actually illegal unless they flash, the bulbs are visible, or they are a specific illegal colour.
