    Default Blue sidelights

    My car went for MOT test yesterday and It failed the test because I had blue side lights in the front, this guy told me its Illegal to put blue sidelights since december 2008. Is this true?

    Don't dismiss Philips 501 BlueVision bulbs. They're equally as good as MTEC's.

    blue is in the white light spectrum, or it wouldnt exist as ALL colours that are visible or not(to the naked eye) are in the spectrum of light.
