I also agree with the statement that NH cops are really strict about things like this too. I regularly drive up to Manchester as I have friends and family living there and the cops are Nazis about everything. They look for any excuses to pull you over.

I even used to live in NH a few years ago and I have heard and seen people get pulled over for any and every mod on cars:
Tints = pulled over (both to check darkness and if you have your front-sides tinted)
No front plate = pulled over
6000k HID bulbs = pulled over
LED License plate bulbs = pulled over
Aftermarket exhausts = pulled over
"Blue tinted" bulbs (GP Thunders for example) = pulled over

Your chances of getting pulled over for the above things increase exponentially if you are driving through the "boonie" towns (Derry, Candia, Goffstown, Hooksett, etc.) The Barney Fife comment is accurate!
i think it depends a lot on the type of car you drive.. if it is a riced out honda or toyota then you will attract the wrong type of attention and if you have any of the above you will get pulled over for sure... but on a classy car like a bimmer with subtle mods.. i doubt they would even notice..

i myself live in NH.. drive an '08 infiniti FX with 20% tint all around.. front and rear LEDs and have never had an issue.. i think cops look for suspect cars (i.e. old, not well maintained, riced out)
