Here is my '02 Skoot-aru, haven't had it long but I do love it already. I figured I'd throw up some photos and see what ya'll had to say, so here it goes. I know it's stock for the most part but it does have a custom built cold-air intake, aerodynamically designed roof racks, a blue light to help with downforce and drag. Well, let me know what ya'll think and i'll keep posting pics as things come available

Well, since you asked.... Nice looking car, but I am surprised the blue light hasn't gotten you a ticket. In some states, that is a misdemeanor with jail time. I doubt it would improve aerodynamics, either. The confederate flag is offensive to some people as well. I'm not making judgement, just pointing out how it might be perceived. There are plenty of better ways to customize a car. I do like the roof rack. Tell us more about that.

Some people are offended by people that are so easily offended. I'm not making judgement, just pointing out how some might perceive those that point things like that out as well as that are offended.

I thought they were red. Correct me if I am wrong.
HERE in Pennsylvania volunteer fireman use blue lights.

Here in WA volunteers use Green lights. Blue lights can put you in jail. Which is funny because some factory HID's are "blue."

Most people in WA have no idea what the green lights are for and ignore them. They even ignore the DOT incident response guys that clear the roads even though they have Red lights.

Sometimes lawmakers use common sense, usually it seems they don't. Good to see PA had some for that law.

Not true. All factory applications for HID headlights use a color temperature of 4300K, which is white light. There is some diffraction at the cutoff shield that separates the colors of the light emitted, and can cause a blue/violet band of light at the cutoff. Any of the "blue" HID lights you are seeing are cheap PnP kits.

And they aren't revolving or flashing.
