Some pics would help. If the turn signals are white, you should be able to fit yellow bulbs to solve that bit. As to the lowering, that may be a bit more involved.

Thats not low !!! very strange?? American law here in the UK that dont look to far from standard, as for the indicators I presume you mean front ( which I cant see!!) but if white fit with chrome bulbs which flash orange!, are you sure that not one of your pals has phoned 'rent a cop' and are winding you up????

hahaha theres no way your car is illeagal, possibly you dont have amber turn signals, but as far as drop wise, you're hardly dropped at all! what kind of suspension work do you have done on it anyways?

If the law is no more than 2" drop, you're in the clear.

A solution for the turn signal situation is to change the bulbs to orange ones or go with silver bulbs that illuminate orange. Here is a link to one example on our sponsor's site:
