Smoked Tailights

Anyone who lives in cali, maybe you can help me with this. I want to smoke the tailights of my 328i, i dont want to black em out, i jsut want them to be a lil dark. Now i kno you can sand em down and use the auto paint. My question is someone told me i can still get pulled over even if there just a little dark. Also if i get in an accident i will get screwed because its an illegal modification.

Depends on the cop, etc. too many factors go into tinting your lights. My opinion, do it, not black, just a light smoke, and tint it with film so that in the event of a ticket or something, it can be removed.

Garage List
2007 328i  [0.00]
I have a set for sell:

170+shipping OBO

I took them out from my 2009 BMW E92 335i with 20,000 miles.
Its lightly tinted, not dark at all. The lights look the same with original ones during night time.
