I have all kinds of Emergency Vehicle lights, Gear, and all sorts of stuff. Mainly enough for one full car. Everything but the car I am selling, I hope to sell all in one lot but if need be I will offer only a few sold seapratly. I made websites for police places and was paid in items, and of course these are worth a lot near $2,000, but I am willing to take WAY, WAY, WAY less, and open to offers. I have lots of pictures of the center consoles, antennas, push bars, lights, and parts just let me know and I will post pictures.

do you know what the legality of mounting those on your car is?

I think the lights are legal because of the colors or something. I believe MacEffects told me that previously although I'm not 100% sure. :)

Well, all of the lights are all Clear Amber, with 2 rear red accent lights, and at least in the State of Indiana this is 100% Street Legal... Everything on the car and all gear is Legal unless modified. Yes is may look like a cop car but lets be honest this is a Buick not a Impala, Caprice, Crown Vic, so that is not a problem.

I am thinking of $650 O.B.O (Willing to trade for Mac stuff) open to ALL Offers :)

Those will work in any car that does not have a auto on/off with the vehicle unless its modified.

Impersonating an emergency vehicle in ANY way is illegal (at least in California). I don't care what color, size, or shape the lights they are.

It is even illegal to have a red hood visor because at night, opposing headlights could make your car appear as an emergency vehicle.

If I were to stick my head out of the window and make a siren noise while traveling through a tunnel, that would be also illegal.

Quite frankly, I don't see how these could be legal in any state.

I agree but I am not impersonating a Police officer in anyway, and if that was what it appears then wreckers, plows, and other non emergency works lights. My Car isn't in anyway considerable as impersonating, well I can not say for sure in your state but I am pretty sure this car is 100% Street Legal if the lights and such are NOT used on the road.

I wish they had paid you in riot gear. I would take that off your hands.

Anyway, I think that having these on your car is probably legal, but turning them on to make people pull over is definatley not. Impersonating a police officer is a felony, so before you buy you may want to look it up in your state's law books. Keep in mind, however, that the cops paid him in these lights, which means that they must be legal to own and mount, and if not, the cops were breaking the law.

So would it work in an '06 Audi A6?

Does the car headlights turn on automatically? (if its dark) or have day time running lights - if so then these won't work, but if yours are manual this will work. But be warned it requires some wiring.

I can turn the daytime running lights off, It would be hard to wire though, as EVERYTHING is sealed up in that car. I found a kit at cartoys to have the same effect, but it says it doesnt support bi-xenon. Darnit. Thanks anyways.

So when you say everything do you mean the wiring and the controls? And then who is the manufacture of all of the lights?

I have the Controlers, Swtiches, Wires, Instructions, and mounting parts, as well as the lights/parts themselves. I think Federal Signal on all if not most of the items. There maybe some Code3 things mixed in. Great items. Just have no use for lights and stuff on my car :rolleyes:

I believe here in MO these are legal to mount, just not to run. They MAY be legal to run b/c they are amber.

However, you can do whatever you want if it is a show car and not on the road. I had a dash mounted sheriff's light/siren for a while that I got from dating a gal who's father was a deputy. DAMN that's a fun way to scare friends that work at gas stations!

Well, this color set up is legal off-raod or when parked (such as in a hazard situation), the only thing is these can not be used when your on the road driving. But if nothing else it is always interesting being a car that often times people go 10 under the limit in with all of this stuff in it, it sure was a sight to see :rolleyes: :cool:

Wreckers have these
http://www.florawrecker.com/Merchant2/images/fed517112.jpg So the only reason people are thinking this isn't legal is because its in full sized car, and they associate this with a police car. But have you ever seen a 'Oversized Load Semi' with a car with lights behind/infront of them its the same deal.

You wouldn't be the first one... Once I bumped these when driving and people pulled over :eek: and then called the cops, but I told them what happened and they understood, don't get me wrong if you were to abuse these you'd get in some big trouble. :p
