From the 4th sticky at the top of the forum list... "The Answer to Almost All Questions About Lights"... there's a link to Division 4 of the Motor Vehicle Act... which clearly states:


4.05 (1) A motor vehicle must be equipped with either one or 2 headlamps mounted on each side of the front of the vehicle and capable of displaying white light.
White, not yellow. Not blue. Not pink.
Don't be the next statistic - If you drink, don't drive. You'll lose your licence, and the rest of us will laugh at you.

So... what's your question?

Your lights are yellow? Like actual YELLOW or just normal lighting coloured.

If it's actual YELLOW headlights then I've never seen those either, have only seen yellow foglights if that's what you're talking about.

Plus, you got a warning and ten days to change it, no ticket, so what're you complaining for?

I've seen lots of old sealed-beam lights that start to look yellow as they get old... some of them get REALLY yellow and dim.
