are yours professionally tinted or DIY? I dont really have any trouble seeing my brake lights at night or day... mine are professionally painted, i think the paint allows the light to shine through better than the DIY versions.

edit: the tails in your sig are clean as well, nice work!

No, mine were done by Scott...I didn't even bother screwing with VHT.

The only concern I had was that on a sunny day, the shiny paint would reflect sunlight and blur any red that was trying to come through. I was probably worrying too much...but wanted to ensure that if a cop was behind me they could CLEARLY see my brake lights and turnsignals working. And extra few bucks in bulbs was worth it to me to maybe deter a bored cop. Lots of bored cops in my neighborhood.

dude trust me i know all about bored cops... however, i got lucky the other day, i got pulled over for an "unsafe lane change" and the guy gave me a fix it ticket for my front tint and didnt even mention my tails. I have a few cops on my hockey teams so i just got one to sign off on the ticket

In CA it's only a matter of time. CHP has been pulling people over left and right for tinted tails. They're causing a lot of accidents.
