Re: black house illegal?

yea he was definitely being an ***. if it's not dark enough where you can barely see the light then it should pass.

Re: black house illegal?

any modification to a DOT-approved light is illegal.

maybe so but how many people really hold you back for that? there are people like that but for the most part they understand it's just a customization and that light still passes through. it does the same job but looks better. i agree with what you say but man, some people are still ***'s.

Re: black house illegal?

Paint your low beam while you're at it and tell me that's not illegal. You painted a part of the headlight that actually reflects light. If someone were to see your car from the side and your blinker were on they would not be able to see it at all. This is why I left my blinker chrome when I redid my lights the second time.

no, modding a light is illegal.

its like saying...in a state with a "no front window tint" law...that youre going to sit there and argue with the cop that "50% really isn't that dark!"

he'll have your fix it ready in 5 minutes

so people who fail you are asses but the ones who pass you are cool? the double standard is clear

we're not talking the spirit of the law (in regards to doing the same job but "looking better" like blackhousings or "performing better" like an OEM HID retrofit)...the letter of the law says its illegal.

i dont care, however, about the letter of the law my headlights are all black, my tail lights are tinted, and my front windows are too dark. cops have had almost 5 years to pull me over for any of it, and i've been to/lived in/went to school in places where cops are straight ****s.
