I've driven past couple police and they just keep going. I have my footwell cathodes on at night too and I haven't been pulled over. My front lisence plate is off too and thats illegal as well (In California).
i would put a (okay) tint on the car and not care how good the tint was if i lived in a area like i do which tint is not legal... why waste ur money one sumthing you will get a ticket for and have to take off?
you get tint you pay about 150 for the tint
then the fix it ticket is 150
and then to take the tint off you have to pay about 150
total : 450 about
waste of money you can get a exhaust with that money
but if you live in a area its legal get... the BEST SHIT you can buy is the brand "LLUMAR" like stated above.
Actually I paid $179 for the tint, which is the best deal i got around town.
Fix it tickets usually don't cost anything, unless theres a fine attached to it (you're pulled over by a sheriff). Just take it to the police department and show them you fixed it. ticket gets written off.
To fix the windows, its $40/window, so $80 total.
Total is $260. If you ever see police and you get anxious, just roll the windows down.
