Re: tinted headlights

I thought they were illegal as they reduce the performance of the headlights.

Re: tinted headlights

It is illegal to modify the lights in anyway, even those headlight covers wich are not 100% clear are illegal (the small cross lines are ok) but the ones with cutouts are still illegal.

Re: tinted headlights

Just get some "NITESHADES" from autobarn or supercheap, it's special taillight paint for your taillights. Cost $15 or something.

Re: tinted headlights

Tinting the light itself is illegal, but you can do it to covers and just take em off at night.

I was told by a COP that it was illegal even during the day, had to remove the covers then and there and was let off with a warning.
