Smoked lights are likely to not pass. I can see why, all the smoked tails I see barely light in daytime. And smoked headlights, well how can anyone see in the dark with them?

To each his own, I use to have stained glass red painted tails. Ultimately, this reduced visibility the least of anything though over time I got tired of it. I drive 40-50k miles a year so I wanted to be as visible as possible. I then modified my stock tail lights to be even brighter and installed some clean non painted ones.

I spray tinted my tails and turn signals and blacked out the side markers....but, I think the spray tint has lightened over the past few months. When I first did it they looked almost too dark. yesterday I parked next to an e30 with stock tails and mine looked about the same tint.

in any case, I've never had a problem passing inspection...
