really cool, but I already get pulled over too much and this would probably add to my troubles, I think I will stick to red!

ya i figure they will pry be pricks about them but i havent gotten pulled over yet in the almost 2 months i have had the car so i am feeling left out j/king. Actually as you can see when the lights are on they look stock so i figure if the :police: are behind me ill just turn my parking lights on and they will be none the wiser. I dont think i would do it with many colors but i think since deep forest green is a pretty dark green it will look good. Pry wont bother me more than if they were just tinted. I saw some cars with color matched tint but they were more silvers etc none dark green and i think they looked good. its something unique. The car has a catted h pipe and what not so even if they pull me over for just the lights everything else is pretty much legal. When the lights are needed they are easily visible so i dont see the problem( i dont know the laws in sd on tinted tails ill look into it though lol). If someone cant see the ass end of my car in the daylight they need to :gtfo: the road

:lol: funny thing is the cops cant write you a ticket..well here in tx they cant, they have to be visable yes, but yall are forgetting i tinted my friends tails so dark they looked like part of the body..and he still hasnt been pulled over. they illuminate fine and i agree with josh if they cant see the 3rd brake light, go red :gtfo: the road
