Yep, going down the road from our house. Cop pulled me over and gave me a verbal warning. Which I do admit, my lights are extremely dark. I'm glad I had just bought a new set from another member on here. I'll put those new ones on and sand these down to have the tran paint them for me.

Just sucks. I always get my balls busted for this kind of stuff. I'm not ever doing anything wrong. And it's always either my license plate, or my tail lights. And to think, I just spent a whole day tinting the lights.

i went with the gts covers in fear of this, id just keep your blacked out tails for shows and swap em out when they end or get the covers for your new ones

That sucks, but dude... the woe is me thing doesn't fly. "Which I do admit, my lights are extremely dark" doesn't go well with "I'm not ever doing anything wrong." Just saying. I'm sympathetic, but it's not like you're innocent.

I've got my cans of VHT (finally, after a year!) and I'm taking my time planning this. Mine are going to be very light for this precise reason.

My tails are as dark as my car. Ive got the LED's so they shine right through no problems. I was told by local law enforcement that as long as they emit red I was in good shape :D

Oh, I know I was in the wrong. When I did them, I did it way too dark. As soon as I realized how dark they were, I started searching for some. I've got another set on the way. Ordered Friday. Just don't have another vehicle to drive until they come in, so I've gotta drive around illegally. Between that and my front plate, it's usually why I get pulled over. Which, I refuse to put on my front plate. Which, of course, I know is illegal. But by not ever doing anything wrong, I mean I don't drink and drive, do drugs, make crazy fast lane changes, street race, or anything like that. I just wanna drive a good looking car.

As far as the GTS light covers go, I like them alot, but can't bring myself to have that velcro showing when I'm not using them.

Like the other guy said, I'll just have a set for show, and a set for my daily driving. Bad thing is, I see people all the time driving around with tail lights like mine, but they've got big chrome wheels, so I think it throws them off. But being that my car is all black, I think it's just a target all the time.

I don't think its a moving violation at all. Just a fix it ticket. Those are never accompanied with points. Than again laws vary from state to state so you might want to check your local laws on this.

i think they'll give you like 3 repair tickets (and it goes on record it was your car and what it was for) and if you get the same thing 3 times they take it further

You sure? I got pulled over about 4 times for my tint. Only 1 was a warning but the rest had repair tickets and had a random cop sign it off without ever checking the car. They never took it further than that.
