thank you all for the excellent words. i have passed my VI with flying colours, except for my yellow DRL, which they were kind enough to let me change right away to pass me.

If u get caught you will be given a 575 dollar fine, towing and impound charges.
in total.

window tint ticket - $109
VI - $99.95 + tax + shop supplies charge $8.00
regular drl/highbeam bulbs - $19.98+tax
total - $252 - $100(cousin gave me) = $152

plus my own labour for taking the tint off 2.5-3hours. plus procrastinating and leaving it to last minute.

i know, i know. but the chances of getting pulled over is not that high in cloverdale, which i wasn't in when i got pulled over. but i guess it's my fault for tinting my fronts.. my mom lectured me about me always rolling down the windows when there was a cop nearby. but i guess trouble happens right?

I always smiled when a car passed my police vehicle in the rain with both front side windows down. Pick me! Pick me!

If you figure your front windows were (for the sake of argument) $80 worth of that job... well that's still $80 out the window (pardon the pun)... you could have just rolled the window down and tossed four $20s out and saved yourself the VI.

They aren't really that eventful... you show up... the mechanic has a look around the car... fills out some paperwork and then hands you a sticker and some paperwork if you pass or tells you why you failed...

Pretty simple...
