    I am interested in adding lighting to Tesla emblems on the front and rear. Similar to as shown
    1)Lighted T for Tesla Model S

    These seems to a single color and second one has a remote to have it blink.

    Probably asking too much but are there any multi-colored/single leds with bluetooth connectivity? That would be awesome if one can program the led lights from your phone.

    Something similar to

    if someone with electrical background can comment what would be roadblocks in accomplishing this, would be really helpful. Thank you.

    As the inventor of both the front and rear lighted Ts there are two problems with your idea.
    First, the car has to be stationary for any other color than white on the front and red on the rear to be legal.

    Second, color options will require a controller, likely Bluetooth, and similar to what we use for the lighted rear applique, And neopixel LEDs will have to be used. All of this adds to the cost and bulk.

    You might want to leave the pyrotechnics to the lighted rear applique -- it has all you need -- and anything that's illegal won't function when the car is moving.

    That being said we're working on solutions to light the T on facelifted Model S's. We may have color options. Stay tuned.
