Looking at these tail lights for the 6, these are on the Aus ebay site but shipping from NZ..

CRYSTAL JDM BLACK TAIL LIGHTS MAZDA MX6 1993-1997 - eBay Tail Lights, Lights, Indicators, Car Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 07-Dec-08 11:24:06 AEDST)

Just curious, it looks like it has US style lights, I mean how it has no clear lens for the blinker, seems to be red with the only clear lens for reverse light.. It says it comes with "orange bulbs for legal use" but wouldnt it just come out red and therefore be illegal here?

These are the only black tail lights I can find and I don't like chrome ones.. Any help would be much appreciated!!

Cheers, Aiden

I have heard of people using green globes to make the light amber but i don't know :shrug: they would deff be illegal with red indicators

Yeah I saw those as well, coming from the US they will more than likely be all red..

Is it legal to have a green bulb in there as long as it comes out yellow, regardless of lens colour? Or is it illegal for the blinker lens to be red regardless of what colour it gets illuminated??

Not that we needed to know your opinion of the lights themselves mhale, I've got a mate that knows someone at the RTA and was able to talk to the vehicle regulations guy, apparently tail lights are legal as long as the lights light up the colour they are supposed to, regardless of lens colour, and as long as they have reflectors.. (if not, reflectors on the rear of the car somewhere).. Just in case anyone else was wondering!

Just use amber globes and the do light up amber.. infact you almost have to use red ones as well they are very light tinting..

You put your question up publicly mean it was open to public opinion, both positive and negative.
