As others have stated, it's the US DOT version of an otherwise attractive headlamp.Same problem here.
So what's the orange thing in the corner of bffmike's headlight? Huh?
Wow. Get caught de-catting here and you are in BIG trouble. It's definitely not worth the risk. Our Environmental Protection Agency can (and does) impose fines of up to $10k per offence.Same goes for cat converters, the whole lot. The attendants at my local TDOT inspection station are apathetic and usually sending tweets while the vehicle is hooked up to the scanner. As long as your car doesn't generate a CEL which would indicate potential genocide of polar bears, you're released with a pat on the back and you're on your way for the next 364 days.
What's funny is that each state has different rules, each county has different rules, and each city usually follows the mandate of the county.Wow.

I think it's because the NHTSA wants white light visible only in front (except back-up lights), red in the back, and yellow from the side. They want it clear what part of the car you're actually seeing at night.that just seems to be on US models, some sort of cheap way to produce a 'running light' effect, not on UK cars.
