Driving Home...

As I was driving home from NY, As soon as I entered MA, a cop pulls me over. My radar dint do anything, and I was only going about 74 in a 65 with cars flying by me. I never thought I would get pulled over for it, but it was for my window tint... I just thought to myself, how board they must be to pull me over for that reason. I got a warning since I told him I bought the car with it on (which was true) but i just laughed as I pulled away.

I did get to play around with a C6 though about 20 miles before entering MA on I-84...

Its pretty damn dark. I think its 10%... idk really tho, im not familiar with tint tho and how the light thing works. He just came over with this little thing the went on my window. Aparently im wayyyy over. I just never thought I would get pulled over just for that reason, I figured Id get nailed after a moving violation. And i wasnt worried since ive been pulled over once before.

Yeah. 10% is pretty dark. Better check your laws, or ask the inspection station.

That picture is of a C5, not a C6. The C6 doesn't have pop up lights.

You got it backwards. The lower the percentage, the darker the tint.

Trash bag. Dark as hell, cheap, and easily replaced.

My bad, i meant to write C5. When I saw it comming up behind me I was confused to what it was. I like the new vette headlights much more. pop-up lights went out in the '90s...
