I am not sure exactly about the legal aspect, but I had a set of the "eye ball" lamps on my old EA. I had them hooked up to be on at the same time as my low beams.
My sis was driving the car one day, and got pulled over for speeding. The copper was giving her a hard time (a 17yr old in a nice car with mags, custom interior, stereo etc etc) and went all through the car. He ended up defecting the car for having the lamps on.
I decided not to fight it, and just took them off the car.
