this is what everyone will tell you:

its your car... do it if you want. if someone tells you not to do it... why would you listen.. its not even their car. if you think it is cool, cool looking, or ugly, do whatever *you* want.

personally, i think the windshield fluid lights are awesome, and i plan on putting them on my car. some people think they are rice-a-roni, but whatever... if you don't like it, don't put them on your car. stop telling me what to do.

oh yeah blue or red are fine... just not alternating (get stopped by the cops for impersonating a pig) :) have fun

Go for it man!! I think they look really cool! For a red car, I'd go for red, or white, if they have it. My car is blue, so I'm going to use the blues. Post a pic or two if you do it...

you can put them on your car and they are street legal (in most states) because it is not over a certain brightness (measured in "candles" if you can believe it). they do not aide in night vision and are not a distraction to drivers (a.k.a. strobes, bright neons, etc) so for most states they are pretty much legit. get a switch so if a cop pulls you over, flip the switch and screw with him... "what lights on my hood? maybe you had too many donuts, dude" heh

I was thinking about these but they only come in chrome. if they were plain black plastic like the stock ones I'd go for them. I don't believe they're that expensive either.

OK
1st the washers/lights come with a long length of cable fitted so wiring shouldnt be a problem. as for a switch (if you need one) might put mine to the fogs.

The washer/lights fit no problem through the hole in the hood but then you have to get a 12mm nut on to the back side of it along with a spacer and spring washer. This is almost impossibe without making the access hole to the back of the washers/lights bigger so be prepared to have to cut the underside to a more accessable size.

cheers
