Yeah I love em get lots of compliments on them just ask the guy that sells them if he would buy your stock lights I'm sure he would and be patient with the shipping it will take a while because the prep work for the lights is around 5 days but its really worth it for how they look they take there time handling its looks which is great

Just stating my opinion, not putting anyone down. My only observation is the younger generation trying to change what a muscle car looks like

As long as brakes are visible from 50 ft you are legal in most states. Never had an issue with tinted tails and police.

Not here in Texas. I had a light coat of VHT on my last car and got pulled over twice for it. I also had to find a shop I that would pass my state inspection with them.

I'm sure officer's discretion comes into play here as well. If an officer feels it is unsafe it's hard to argue your point in the court of law against a sworn officer of the court...
