it all depends bro.. If I were you, Get a lighter tint for your tail light. You might want to check out Bluebatmobile.net and check out their gallery to see which 1 looks better on your car.

Yea the batmobile 3/10 wouldnt be too bad at all. But 6/10 and Lamin-X smoked tints would definitely catch some attention.

You'll have to check the specific laws in New York. I live in PA and have charcoal tints on mine and a lot of red shows. I'm also lowered with a ginormous GReddy EVO2 on the car. I've had local, sheriff and state troopers on my butt countless times and I have yet to get stopped. Knock on wood. :pray:

Now, I bought laminx sheets and wrapped them around the edges of the lights so unless my trunk is open, they look normal.

3/10 from Bat is just enough to make the tails lose their bright ass chrome appearance, but not too dark to have the law bust your balls...at least it hasn't happened to me yet (knock, knock).

what color is your car?!?!! nobody once asked that!! look, if its NHBP/ASM/GG they look good lightly or dark smoked. If you're TW/RR, look into possibly a Red tint from Lamin-x.

Each color has it's own personalities w/ the tinted tails. Look at your color specific thread for examples of each, then pm the owners of the cars.

Edit: here's a TW w/ red tinted tails.
before:


after:
