You could call it Blanche. Goes in the tradition of naming boats after females (which people seemed to apply to cars as well), and is derivative of the French word for white.

Kinda of a boring name though. So how about the ridiculous:

sh!tbeak.

Yep, to follow DOT regulations they do this with all Saab models over here.

A lot of people either pop out the orange reflectors from the inside of the indicators, or buy euro-spec ones for them. (Like myself)

Illegal, yes, but I have never heard anyone failing inspection or being ticketed for them, so... ...who cares?

Can't you just put orange bulbs into them, wouldn't that make it legal ?

Nope. Apparently DOT regulations specify that there must be orange reflectors up front.

I have seen some brands of cars that elect to put the orange reflectors in the bumper, and have clear indicators instead.

I just took mine out though. Chances are the authorities will never notice, and even if they do, I doublt I'll get a ticket or fail an inspection (MOT?)
