They are cool though!
Same here in PA, any flashing other than the emergency signals is a big no no. Across the Border in NY, it'* not just a fine. They will literally yank the control unit out of the vehicle without regards to what they might be damaging. Confiscated. Has happened to quite a few custom car owners that had their work done where I go. The State police went as far as snapped the light tubes off their mounts on a friends RX7. And threatened jail time on an impersonation charge. Him and a couple buddies thought it would be cool to flash a drunk. NYS Police can be a pain. Checking tint and wanted certification, exhaust, and you cant have decals no further down then a dollar bills length on front or back glass.

the color of the bulb is the same like the one you showed compared to the regular bulb that was originally installed in the fog light, no there is no ballast
The only different i see is the color of the light when the bulbs are on, the regular bulb had a tint of yellow like any other cheap bulb, but the xenon bulb looks similar to the original one but the the light is crystal clear.

thats a huge PITA that the police go around ripping out and breaking stuff

in ohio underbody lights are fine but have to be solid and aimed at the ground (what idiot aims his anywhere but the ground), the only stuff that can flash is turn signals if you are on the road, they don't get too picky about tint unless its reflective, they aren't too bad about exhaust either, at least where i live

from my sig you can see all the illegal things lol, but i've never been stopped once even with all the stuff on and music blasting

i hate to say it but you were had, those bulbs have a blue coating to give it a bluish tint, all it does is kill the light output and eventually they coating makes the light start to appear green

a friend of mine did those cus they make them sound cool and cheap too, its just a cheap standard bulb

xenon bulbs are a lot different, also called HID (High Intensity Discharge) because the bulb has a sealed bubble of xenon gas and some other material to make the different colors and the balast puts out about 27,000 volts to ignite the gas and then less to keep it ignited
