Sorry to be a wet blanket but I'm pretty sure such a blue light would be illegal most anywhere in the USA. Blue lighting is reserved for emergency and law enforcement, as far as I know.

Its not that bright at all. It just makes the emblem glow

And it is legal...
"Section 25400(b) of the California Vehicle Code, aftermarket exterior lights, including underglow lights, attached to the front of a vehicle cannot be red in color, but all other colors are permitted."
But Read this from the CVC ..
---------------------------

Candela Limitation
In California, underglow lights must emit a diffused light in order to comply with state law. More specifically, under Division 12, Chapter 2, Article 10 Section 25400(a) of the California Vehicle Code, aftermarket exterior lights attached to vehicles must emit a nonglaring light of 0.05 candelas per square inch of area or less.

Color Limitations
Under under Division 12, Chapter 2, Article 10 Section 25400(b) of the California Vehicle Code, aftermarket exterior lights, including underglow lights, attached to the front of a vehicle cannot be red in color, but all other colors are permitted. Aftermarket exterior lights must also not be place in a position where they might interfere with the effectiveness of visibility or required lights such as break lights, tail lights, turn signals and headlights.

Size Limitations
All aftermarket underglow lights must be 720 square inches or less if the vehicle is leased or rented or it will be primarily driven in residential districts and nearby municipalities. However, show cars are not subject to this limitation in Division 12, Chapter 2, Article 10 Section 25400(c) of the California Vehicle Code aftermarket exterior lights attached to vehicles

I have them on our Web site for Sale.. We imported them from Japan / Nissan.
But If you just ask Google to search for " F2890-3NC0A " We should be the only listing you find.. :)
