Emergency lights

Post by pkpilot »

I am looking to add purple emergency lights to my 2015 RT.  The lights are used to escort funerals.  Does anyone know if there is a commercially available bracket that will allow for over or under mirror mounting?  The BMW police lights are not an option because the manufacturer does not produce units with the purple LEDs.

Thanks in advance!

Thought the only lights allowed on the front of a vehicle other than indicators has to be white... :-X

Depends on your state.  Virginia, like many US states, uses purple for funerals.

Clearwater makes them too.  You'd have to call and ask them, but they sold me the bits to do this.  Those are the factory fogs mounted under the mirrors, and a set of Ericas on the factory mounts.

Maybe you don’t need purple led but purple lens. Most auxiliary lights have plastic lenses - go to your local glass company or sign company and I bet you can get purple plastic and cut your own.
