You do not have to have side windows to pass inspection but if they cannot test the tint and they think that it is tinted, you may have to get the window "Fixed" before they will pass you.
The fact Texas is a state that hell bent on emissions and tint. I love being in ohio with no Emission checks and would honestly think twice before ever moving to a state that has them.

I think what you did was awesome, putting the windows down and pulling the fuse

yeah something tells me most of those guys don't care. Chances of getting caught without cats is slim it seems. Also who is to say you didn't switch out the pipes after inspection? Far as that tech knew you had cats on the car and passed emissions when he tested it....lol

I guess times have changed. In the early 80s, cops nit picked you on everything in Texas.

It's only certain counties in Texas that have emission laws. If I lived 15 miles north I would not be subject to them.

I'm glad I'm not in California. The sticker under my hood states that my car does not meet the emission standards of Cali and that is straight off the assembly line.

You learn to get around the Cali laws, I live in Cali and have no front plate, tinted headlights, tinted tail lights, and no catalytic converters lol.

Tint laws, while understandable from a law enforcement standpoint, are ridiculous. Sure cops don't want to approach a car completely tinted out, for safety reasons, so make it a law that if your windows are tinted and you're stopped by a police officer, windows must be rolled down.

I love this country, don't get me wrong, but we are just subjected to bulls*** laws for money making purposes. In New Jersey, you have to have a front license plate. So they drill holes in the front bumper of a $37,000 car. I pulled mine off and will have the holes repaired. I don't comply with BS laws anymore.

I'd love to see you roll that back window down. I may not agree with tint laws but I definitely understand them. I don't want to walk up to a random car on the side of the road and not see what's going on inside.

I had a friend who was thrown from a truck and died because they were t boned by car whose headlights were not on at night. He had limo tint on the side and back windows and it had just gotten dark. He did not even see the car that he pulled out in front of and my friend, the passenger, died. These laws have other safety purposes. If you choose not to follow safety laws you are putting your self and other people in danger.

In my area, if there not pulling old stuff off, around 200-300 is about the going rate. You can find cheaper. But you get what you pay for...

The only thing about that is that there is literally no way to prove how long your window a have been illegally tinted. Your windows could be tint less and you could get your inspection. That very next day go and get limo on every window including the windshield and it wouldn't be the techs fault at the place you got the inspection. You don't have to reveal any information to police when you get pulled over and if they ask where you got the tint say you put it on yourself. I've gotten about 15 tint tickets in the last 4 years in Texas because my windows always meter less than 35%. It's not 20%, and it's not even 34%. I've gotten busted for them metering 32% and gotten a ticket for it. I also had my driver window on my 98 meter at 3% once haha

Are you getting tickets from city cops or state troopers?

You may be subject to stricter city ordinances. I have 35% now which measures around 30% and asked the garage about legal tint and they say as long as it measures at above 20% I'm good were I'm at. Maybe the laws vary by county as well.

The tickets are usually from bexar county sheriff or small town police officers like Selma, universal city, or even San Marcos is real bad. The SAPD never messes with me, and I usually get fake receipts that say I fixed the tint and turn those in as proof of getting it "fixed". I've only pulled the tint once and that was when my front windows went past limo on the meter haha.

I just don't get the point! Doesn't it hinder your ability to drive? Maybe that is why these people don't see my bright red car and almost hit me all the time.

I have 18% all the way around, here in FL it's 30% in front and 20% in back but I thought the hell with it, your 5% looks really good!
