im not to sure on if they are legal. i had mine done and i live in az and i got pulled over for a blue led license plate light and the cop told me to take the headlight covers off. he didnt site me or anything on it tho..
heres some pics
and heres them on my car
im actually selling or trading them to.. check the for sale threads
I asked a sheriff... here in GEORGIA and he said that nothing can be blocking the light going through the lense......paint or cover etc.... so therefore he said it is ILLEGAL......many ppl have done this to their lights, so its sort of a gamble.... you could get a ticket or you may get away w/ it.
i believe that california law states that tail lights have to be red and visible from 1000 feet away, i think front covers should be okay as long as you dont use them at night. I also live in california and have tinted tails and havent had any problems.
