    I just bought a sho me mini led bar on ebay. The seller did not clearly list that the bar was blue and red which i found out when i received it today. I am pretty sure it is illegal to sell red and blue lights on ebay and there illegal to have without a permit. If anyone could fill me in on it thatd be great.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    In Maine you can't mount or use them. I think it's the same in MA.....Blue should pipe in here in a bit and let you know for sure.

    They are illegal to mount an display in Mass. without a permit. It is illegal to sell colored lights on E-bay but it happens all the time. Usually on E-bay, you should e-mail the seller when they are selling led lights to confirm the colors before bidding.

    ask for a refund for all your money and a return if you dont want it and hopefully he will accept it back and refund your money including shipping cost


    or else go through ebay and in the end u will get your money back

    He misrepresented the item. In Ohio unless your a cop you can't run red/blue unless your actually in a cop car or an under cover cop. Try to get the guy that sold it to you to refund the money w/return shipping that you paid. Be cool and if he won't budge go to ebay and dispute it.

    Don't leave any feedback until you try all avenues to get it corrected.

    I did ask a few questions about letting ebay handle it through their live help service. The guy that helped me said if the buyer will not give you a refund i should file a dispute against him. I am now just waiting for him to email me back with an answer. Thanks

    I think Ebay has a strict policy on not allowing anything other than clear or amber. Red, blue, whatever are supposedly not allowed, but this guy got by with it.
    Send it back on his dime and get what you wanted.
    Colligan... your response was funny as hell!

    Joe, I think they only regulate Guns. I sold a 6 pack of blue hide ways a year ago or so and a whelen siren for a friend 3 years ago. We had no questions, comments or restrictions around either one. I wish they allowed guns though. :gunsfiring:

    No Blue or red "lenses" is how they get around this because its lights that blue not the lense

    The guy is trying to convince me to put it back on ebay instead of sending it back to him because he spent all the money already. (bs) Ended up not being a day off.

    He's going to have to try REAL HARD to convince you. I know I sure as heck wouldn't. That's his issue. Not your fault he misrepresented the item and sold you something that's most likely illegal for you to run on your rig.
