I don't know if this is the best thread to start but after reading a tint thread I thought I can't be the only one with a list of tickets looking to happen. I guess after some replies on wether or not this is a good idea we can ethier go ahead with the thread or trash it. I know I have plenty so what about the rest of you?

Ok since this got 3 replies in a matter of minutes I guess its a go lol.
5% tints in rear again legal but doesn't seem like it should be. illegal tint over 3rd brake light, or so I have been told.
20% on doors, illegal
Hid's, illegal
clear corners with blue bulbs illegal
Custom Red LED thunder cats grill, illegal because they are red lights on the front of the car
strobes in tail lights
soon to be strobes in clear corners, just need to extend my wires. I think thats it for now, if I thing of more I'll post them up.

too bad i was already in my driveway outside my car. i never saw them in my rear view mirror and they took about 15 seconds to pull up right behind me. told me to put my hands up. I was like *whoa*....they asked me why i was driving like a maniac and i froze like a lil b!tch and told them the funniest thing ever...."uhhh cuz of the shift kit?"

after they realized it WAS my house and i was already out of it they didnt do anything. They did chew me out pretty bad tho :(

Thats funny because when I barked the 1-2 shift I pulled in my driveway as well.Cop pulled up behind me in the driveway and chewed me out too.I still had my California license so he let me go but not before he told me he was going to be on the look out for my car.

Wierd

So tonight after starting this thread im on the way to my g/f's house when I get stuck in traffic in a turn lane only. I figure there was an accident or something so I got out of that lane and went straight, as I pass the intersection I see a nice police check point and they had atleast 4 cars pulled over. Im glad I am impatient lol on the way home 4 hours later they were still there so I had to go around again. During the day it would be easy to get past them , just roll down the windows and dont turn my lights on lol but at night its very easy to see me coming.

Only thing on my car would be the tinted taillights, be there are so many fricken morons and meth heads in this area that the police keep busy with them.

And if anyone wants strobes, I bought a set off here when I was young and stupid. Sell 'em cheap (truth be told, I could use the money to fund another project):)

hey, andries... just get soem hi-power strontum ferrit magnets... or just some big @$$ ones... put a magnet on the back of your liscense plate, covered with cheesecloth, and just put the magnet on the other side of the bumper... that should work.. without wrecking your front.

Yea, the car dealers use those strong magnets to hold the D-tags on for test drives, they work pretty well. Of course thats in the back and isn't subject to as much wind. Might be worth looking into if you can get magnets stong enough to hold the tag through the bumper cover.
