Ever hear that saying, if you go looking for trouble, you'll find it? Well, how this applies is that those black colored corner lights are fairly obvious that they are not DOT approved, and if they are not DOT approved, this is a reason for the fuzz to give you a nice fix-it ticket. Also, if you are involved in an accident and your car had local and federal non-compliant equipment, more liability will fall upon the owner of a non-compliant vehicle. Choose wisely and proceed.

Why would those not be DOT approved?

There technically have to be reflectors on the front of your car.
And the blinkers have to blink a certain color. I think either orange or yellow.
This does neither.
