I am in New Jersey and thinking about using NightShade on my tail lights to make them black (in order to match with the color of my Jetta) However I am wondering if it is legal or not, I don't want to be pulled over every other day by our friends the Troopers. Anybody has any experience with this in Jersey?
The reason I am asking is that I was going to buy the smoked license plate cover and the sales guy at Strauss told me it was illegal... so.... I am wondering.
Thanks for any imput....

Sadly, he's not far off from the truth. Luckily you can pay off almost anybody that does inspections and get pretty much anything to pass. Then of course you are taking the risk of getting ticketed.

well, the liscence plate covers are illegal because they cause glare and if its tinted, you cant see it at night, about the tail lights, I dont know, my friend has it done on is mk2 jetta and hes been okay...

Yes illegal...BUT I'm in PA and have tinted my tails with nightshades....no problems yet. If you are gonna do this..use NIGHTSHADES...it's a great product. I haven't had ANY problemns from police, mainly because there is no noticeable loss in light transfer! So during the day, and at night...the taillights can clearly be seen...hence no pulling over. I can't say they'll be that understanding in dirty jerz....but if you wana do this, this i the route to go. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

LOL
do you think having a half naked hula dancer on my dash will cause my jetta to fail?
