    wrong again aaron. U can legally tint them but if a cop rights u a ticket for it u have to ask for a state ref ticket because he has to do the testing. They have to be visible from a certain distance in on mode and a certain distance when the break lights r on. Its just like cops will tell u modifying the exhaust in california is illegal. Not true as long as it meets 95dba like mine does, And trust me I know about the taillight tint. When I first bought it I had the shop tint my lights and i was like 2 feet under bein seen when i went to the ref i was sooo pissed

    ill look it up again. somewhere on my pc I have all the cvc relative to modifying our cars and ur right the exhaust code is kinda vague. Problem is most cops screw up and write u for the malfunctioning exhaust code instead of the excessive noise code.

    sema also have a black book that you can look up all of these codes and laws technically in cali you cant modify your exhaust at all even if its under 95b it sucks to be a tuner or modifier of cars in cali but with my cobalt i havent been ****ed with at all lol with my cavalier tho i got pulled over all the time like every month

    ehhhh i stay illegal all the way if your gonna do anything to your car as far as modifying performance or looks you know the risks if your scared then stay legal if you want the power or looks go all the way just gotta find ways around it like lying to cops driving really slow in the city and dont draw attention to yourself. other wise why be a car enthusiest forget all the codes they wont do you any good to know them when your car has 20 trophies or if your running 10s on the track take your car to the max dont hold back and you wont regret it.

    actually the code states you cant modify the muffler. theres nothing that says you cant put on a different muffler or piping.
