LED side grills

Where can I get white LED side grill lenses?
Preferably smoked.. I like the iND ones except they only come in Amber.

Send the guys at IND an email. They used to have the smoked lenses, maybe they still have some even though they don't show on the website...

I believe they operate as turn signals in which case insurance may refuse to cover you as amber is US regulation for same.

Always possible I suppose. The front reflectors are required as well and many have removed them and substituted the painted ones. I have not heard of anyone having a claim denied over it...

They have white LED with clear lens
I'm amazed that after 5 years of this car being on the road there is no smoked Lens with white LEDs available for it

not sure bout California, but how would the insurance co. know that you switched out reflectors or side markers? Mass has the 2nd most stringent inspections (behind CA), no ways those dopes know this stuff.

2 things;

1) It's not a big deal if you have smoked + amber, you're not going to ever see it. Unless, you plan on letting people borrow your ride and you drive theirs right behind. Sounds stupid right?

2) If you really need the white instead of amber then buy them from JBSPEED and get the lens tinted? Not that hard to do, I'm sure if you can type out these posts you're smart enough to do that. (I hope)
