Due to an unusually high number of inquiries in the last few weeks about LED stripes for headlights (for example from the provider SilverHolder or Amber) we have decided to enlighten you about the topic. We ourselves are currently seeing more and more advertisements on social media platforms that show the unusual additional lighting on vehicles in traffic. And you could actually get the topic right away with a reference to our article on impermissible headlight tuning to lock! The requirements of Paragraphs 49a to 54, 60 of the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO) apply. Basically there are changes to the lighting equipment not allowed. And that doesn't just apply to changes IM Headlight housing but also outside. Active LED strips on the headlights or in any gap in the vehicle while driving (Tailgate, bonnet, door etc.) are "while driving" should not allowed.
Providers keep silent about illegality!
As a show effect at a tuning meeting, it could be quite funny, but definitely an absolute no-go in traffic. And if the stuck-on stripes cover a significant part of the headlight when switched off, then that is also illegal. In the worst case, it can expire the operating license and become immediate closure lead in place. At least if the stripes cannot be easily removed again. Even if such a flexible stripe as "LED DRL turn signal strip for headlights"Or similarly declared, it may not be used on public roads. In addition, you should think twice about connecting such a Stripe, which can be purchased for less than € 10, to the sometimes highly complex vehicle electronics of the car. Perhaps a nice gag as individual and additional ambient lighting, but by no means a good idea for the exterior of a street-legal vehicle!
In this country the stripes from the video are illegal!
