Funny fact: we here in Europe hate these orange turn signals and always wanted to black them out and you guys in the US don't want your red lights...

Yeah, let us group 750 million people and 50+ countries and claim all think the same...
All joking aside, it has been like this since the man invented fire. You always want what you can't have. I remember people in the 90's out USA style headlights on their Volvo 240.
