Are you talking about the new lights which change colour?

I think it's incredibly tacky, but that's just me

In the states we would get pulled over for having red/blue as those are only for emergency vehicles but not sure about the others

See ADR 13 here - go to Table 1 for colors


It's illegal for DRL's to be anything other than white (as I interpret your laws). See ADR 76.

Here are the basics:

Main headlights - White
Front Fogs - White or selective yellow
Front Blinkers - Amber
Front Hazards - Amber
Brake lights - red
Third brake light - red
DRL - White
