Repainting a car a different color is a major undertaking. Not having tint may help draw less attention. Also how you drive.

Not sure what to tell you. We have a lot of black cars here. Do you have a loud exhaust?

When I had my Camaro I was never messed with. Convertible sports car with racing stripes and 5% tint with a loud stereo. Never got messed with.

There must be something else.

Bonneville looks much more like something you will find a dozen teenagers or college students in than a camaro believe it or not.

So you're saying that the cop must be profiling? Because my Bonne with 15% tint on it and loud stereo still doesn't get any attention. Maybe once I put the 20'* on it I'll get some attention.

I don't get pulled over. And I have a loud exhaust, and come on, my car don't really look stock. IMO, things that get you pulled over other then reckless driving is a lot of tint, and big wheels.

Our style cars aren't related to the younger generation as much as the 90-99 body styles since ours cost a bit more.
