    I think blacked out lights are illegal in every state. Most come marked "for off road use only"

    Yeah I think just about everything is illegal on the left coast. I'm surprised you guys don't have to pee though a special devise that takes out the bad stuff so some tiny microscopic animal won't get sick.. But pot is okay, go figure....

    It's only 2010. Give them time. I'm sure they'll come up with something like that.

    California is the sh*t and will always be home for me... we do deal with alot of B.S. but it's worth it 100%.. but to answer your question.. kinda.. you may get messed with or you may not. I have had mine painted black for a year and never gotten pulled over for them.. knock on wood. Worst case scenario is you get a fix it ticket. keep a spare pair of stocks, pay the $15 and put them sh*ts back on. WESTSIDE!!

    Well its like someone else said above.....it is and it isnt, i had blacked out lights on an 01' ws6, 97' z28 and an 06' Charger. i never got pulled over but if they are looking for a reason to mess with you they will definitely use that. I think is has to do with how dark it is too, like maybe what kind or how much paint they/or whoever they pay to the tinting uses....some peoples tint looks dark as hell and you really cant see there lights (blinkers) during the day and others you cant even tell its tinted when they flash.


    Oh and yea Cali is overrated....its not "where its at".....i watch all those older movies that depict Cali as being this awesome fun in the sun state. BS! I mean dont get me wrong, it has its perks and i was born here, lived here all my life and i too am counting the days to my departure, that shows something

    I agree, Have family that has lived there since the late 30's. It's not all it's cracked up to be anymore. Last 3-4 years alot have left for Arizona/Nevada.
    News here mentioned the other day, that attendance was so low in many California schools that they were closing doors. I think the economy has chased people out of Cali as well.

    As far as tinted lights, it's up to you. It looks okay on some cars. But I'd never do anything that would lessen the affect of my brake lights. I wouldn't be worried about getting pulled over, I'd be worried about the dumbass behind me not stopping.
