    No it's not legal. All I can think is he has removed the side light bulbs and stuck clear indicator bulbs in his indicator bit. The indicators come on as default if you blow a sidelight bulb or headlight bulb on that headlight unit.

    I think the AFL lights have bulbs up there in the pre-face. If he's swapped the bulbs though, not legal.

    It'll depend how they've done it, if the wiring/bulb holders have been re-routed I can't see why they'd be illegal.

    As long as the correct wattage bulbs are fitted and work when they should and show the right colour........

    I debated this last year as i did it with my old escort... you just swap the wiring and then get different led bulbs, you can get yellow 501's and white led pin bulbs. I wanted it like the old school scooby look with the side lights on the edge...

    I already have LED's wired up so if someone wants a pic i could swap it this weekend once i get a bulb. Only reason i didnt i thought the HIDs would drown out the indicators too much as there's less of a barrier compared to the indicator at the top... Indicator fogs would sort this
