discolored falls under older cars for yellow to orange lenses faded from red. if a car has any vinyl or film, even such as eyelids. we are told to fail it.

ps: all this information is new, if the book is not 05 it may not have it but this it pretty present.

yep, and they will tell you the same with tint. law is 20% since 1988, but cops will still pull you over because they think its too dark.

So basically if the cop is in a bad mood he can ticket you even if your legal???

no, not all inspection laws are the same laws that they follow. doesn't make sense to me but it seems like they are just trying to make up their own laws to arise more profit for the town

take window tint for example state inspection law is 20% on the front windows, I can pass the car and as soon as you pull out of the inspection station you can get pulled over because the legal limit is 35%. go figure

don't know for sure, I do know that certain colors can't be seen from some areas, like red from the front, I don't know if that includes the red glow, but if your red neon bar can be seen through the grill that is illegal, I think its blue and green can't be seen at all on a non emergency veh, but is a glow illegal if you can't see the light? who knows ask any cop
youll get a different answer
