Have you ever been stopped because of mods? For Tint on Tails, or Windows, or high emissions exhaust, or too loud, or anything at all? If so, tell us about it!

Sadly to say but yes...i have been stopped twice now
In both cases i was not breaking any laws...Police just wanted a closer look at the car

Yup.. ive been pulled over for tints a couple times...
I also got pulled over for speeding, but ended up with a noisy muffler ticket instead....

word of advise for those with tints... legal or other wise... if you get pulled over, roll windows down and put interior lights on.... It helps the cops see inside and see they are not at risk... Cops get paid to be nosy.. If they can see it from far, they are less likely to take a closer look....

hell yeah I've been pulled over for europlates. I had 14, counted them, 14 "verbal warnings" in my Corrado, 1 "fix it" ticket. Then I got my new GTI, pulled over 5 times,all within about 2 months, 1 $78 ticket. Then my plate got ripped off the front of my car on New years Eve.

I got pulled over for speeding and they gave me an obstructed front plate ticket instead- which was very nice of them although you can buy them at autozone so i dont understand how they are illegal
.. I'm talking the tinted license plate covers..

Wow, never knew disableing your daytime running lights can be illegal. Unless the cops really know cars, how can they really tell?
