25950(a) VC, IIRC.. Ive written it, but cant remember the exact section. White/amber only to the front. Off highway (car shows), and you should be fine. ANY red to the front is a big no-no..

The Camaro's look sharp with tinted windows. I see tinted windows all the time in California.

I do not believe you have too. It might increase your chances of being pulled over, which is fine as long as you have the dealer paperwork. The dealer plates just signify its new to police; albeit advertising at the same time.

Nope.

All you need is the temporary registration paperwork/tag displayed on the front windshield.

I believe you mean CAI? Cold Air Intake. It is in fact a fix-it ticket. They can be pricey. I'm not positive but sometimes for CA Smog violations they base the fine off of how long the modification has been on the vehicle. If they don't know how long it has been on the vehicle they can put it at the maximum possible fine for that particular violation.

But to answer your question, yes it is a fix-it ticket.

I don't even know how you guys have a car and motorcycle culture with the way your laws are. So is there no CAI that passes CARB? I love the fact that even if your car burns cleaner than factory if it looks modded on the exhaust it fails, that is awesome.

For the guy that said he doesn't belong there, pack up and move east we'll take you. I'm in Alabama but you might prefer Atlanta, Ga. They have inspections but not like yours at all and just for the Atlanta metro area, but Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, no inspections.

Seriously I'm no trying to kill the environment, I'm trying to reduce weight on my car. I've heard some say they can drop 100lbs in exhaust weight. So can anyone comment on after market brands of headers, cats, and cat back that have passed CARB, you know, in case I decide to look for a job on the left coast later.

I think it is fix AND pay since it is a SMOG violations.

The problem is that submitting something to CARB costs money and time. Most companies don't bother with it. If the market is big enough they will, but most companies are small and don't have the funding to do the R&D and submit for CARB testing.

CARB; like most California environmental things, is usually just a pain and won't pass things for various reasons.

SMOG checks are changing supposedly in a few years. They will use a different method using the vehicle's computer etc. So you can mod your car as long as it makes it cleaner burning. At least so I'm told, who knows when it will be implemented.

I got pulled over by CHP for no front plate and tinted windows...after he walked up to my car...he asked if I could pop the hood. He saw my K&N intake and said, where's your CARB legal sticker. Said don't know...it has to be legal because they wouldn't ship it to CA. Lol...he said that he would write me a fix it ticket for the windows and warned me on the no front plate, Intake and my exhaust being loud.
