Is the modification compliant? What is the standard for dazzling? What is legal? Many people don't have a clear idea. So there is still a lot of room for improvement in this area. Car lamp manufacturer Kaibo Optoelectronics reminds you: Consumers should abide by regulations and modify car lamps within the scope of regulations.
