buddy of mine switched cars for the weekend. ill have her back monday evening. ill post then. funny thing is, he got pulled over on the interstate. guess what for. you got it! cop said that he didnt know how to fill out an inspection ticket, so he ripped it up. if i get pulled over, ill just tell him that "its an SVT thing". he initially got pulled over for speeding. then he noticed my 5% tint. plus the smoked tails. buddy showed him my "doctor's note" for having dark tint. and copper was "like whoa, ok". but i was relayed a message to take my tailight covers off. <chuckle>
guess ill be getting some brighter bulbs. i have seen 32led bulbs that light up like a regular bulb. just another excuse to buy something for my ride....im luvin it.

^Eh, that's what I'm afraid of around here. I will just have to wait to see what happens with everyone else before I get mine done even though I have never gotten harrassed about anything else on my car but you never know....

sounds like the only reason he was warned about his tails was because of his speeding.

i wouldn't worry about the tails. i've never had anyone complain about them up until now.

Well I'm going on 4.5 hours on the road without any interference! They really don't block much... I had those black plastic covers on my old car and I Noticed a difference when they were on or off, not so much here.

Madness, that top pic I just turned the headlight knob on, no brakes. Same thing here, as you can see the 3rd brake isn't lit. Not sure why the pic's kinda blurry (or why there's all those sideways Ms or Ws?!), but you see the light quite clearly:

Thanks for the pic, Amanda. I was kinda worried about how much light they would put out and I see it looks just fine.

cbrenn71, I won't be able to send you my tails/side markers for a while. I was gonna be sending them out next week but my money supply is low. But you will be getting them at a later date

Anyone can get away with tinted windows and a doctor's note, it's just that then the cop is pissed off at you and doesn't let you off with a warning for 5 over...

The reason the photo was blury was because you droped your shutter speed causing any movement "and I mean any" to creat blur.But the only way to get a good night shot if to do that.. If you try it again try puting the camera on a tripod or on a sturdy table. and Thanks for the photos amanda Looks fine to me
