Right bro!!! It's cuz cops in my town are bored, there was not a single car on the road, as soon as I pulled outta my driveway he looked right over when he heard my exhaust and didnt hesitate for a second to pull out behind me..granted he was a super nice guy, just told me that I can run into problems with them and I can get ticketed, but told me nice car and have a great day.

Too be honest I don't think I went dark enough on them with the black decklid and valence, I'm def not taking it off or I feel I'd have to take the decklid and valence off or it would kind of look un balanced

How many of y'all are in the Vegas area? I'm wanting to smoke the taillights on my '12, but, I'd rather have it done by trained professionals, at an ALMOST stock appearing level, like the smoking of a Marauder, or '13 Explorer Sport. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated
