Just tell them the tint is stock. You'll be fine. They will probably check to see if you have an illegal exhaust. I.E. an off road pipe. If the only thing you have done is tint, you'll pass.

This is the first time i've posted in this forum..... I miss Texas SooooOOOoooOoo bad!

If u have tinted tails u won't pass unless the guy doesn't care, as for window tint, if they think its illegal they will test it and u won't pass til u fix it unless u go somewhere else.

Unless your tails are visible at 500 ft or more. Then by standard, you would pass. But otherwise, you may have some convincing to do.

i cut the lunchbox off the exhaust but im not worried about that. the tint on the windows i can easily say it came like that when i bought it in colorado now that i think about it... its not that dark. i do have a banner on the windshield but if necessary ill remove it, no big deal it was only like 10 bucks

that is a big negative, ghost rider.


that gets you a SAFETY ONLY inspection. If your car is in or around an emissions county, it is a DIFFERENT STICKER.

be careful about that becuase if you get pulled over and your address on your license is an emissions county, your FUBAR'ed (so is your inspector).

That is not something to mess with, as that is Texas DPS (state troopers) that deals with that stuff, and they crack down HARD on that.

nevermind the fact that certain idiots are talking about a hook up on inspections on FREEKING PUBLIC FORUM.

I'm pretty sure DPS isn't watching a focus forum (no offense) for registration laws. I have lived in southeast texas, houston, pasadena, friends wood, and now San Antonio. I have also ALWAYS had the same type of sticker..... I never said in what county or city, or the actual business that has the fine pleasure of taking my money. So what does it really matter that I am talking about a hook up?
