I've never been stopped for my tinted reflectors...I'd be surprised if it'* ever noticed by cops.

i asked a local cop about mine he said it was fine, the only way he would ticket me was if i was pulled over for another reason and if i was giving him lip.
looks good tho!

Yeah, hopefully I'll have no problem with it and the cops. *crosses fingers*


I really like how they look though, and thanks for all the comments.

We have plans to remove them one more time and buff them out a bit. There'* a little room for improvement.

Hey, looks good! I'm sure the pictures don't do them justice! It was cool to finally meet up with you too.

Hey Owen (I know that'* not his real name but he looks like Owen WIilson so I'm calling him Owen)

Does the fact your fronts are clear and the rears are dark (aka tinted) bother you? That'* the reason why I went back to amber corners because the fronts didn't match the rears (amber turnsignals)

But I like the tails.

(I bet Wren didn't help at all, I bet he must have sat on his recliner with his racing helmet on and making "vroom-vrooom-screaming" sounds )

Looks great that'* the same way I did mine and the police have NEVER bothered myself or my wife in the past 6 months. And the police and DOT can be very picky about stuff around here, although maybe the fact it'* not a pimped out rice rocket that screams "LOOK AT ME!" helps.

BTW I love the color of your car, the tint looks soooo much better on yours than it does on mine.

I'd like them more if they were more polished and shiney for sure, but nice nice.

Light transmission is cut down, at night they're still plenty visable, but during the day sometime they seem a bit dim. I'm always worried that someone wont see me slowing down when i'm turning into my drive coming down the hill..

It also helps that some models like mine have the stripes.
