For those who might be scratching their heads, he wanted to add emergency lights (strobes) to the headlights but when he drilled into it, it made a bunch of dust that spread all over the inside.

Now, I'm wondering about those clear side lights. I guess those are for Europe? All of North American models are amber as far as I know. Is the bulb for it amber?

Those do look very good and the price is reasonable. They're bright enough that you would think that they were the old style strobes instead of LED's.
