We've all had them. Modifications that get us in trouble with the law, no matter how minor the asthetic upgrade we just can't resist.

List your "hot box" mods!

In my accord i had blue led turning signals... big nono in MA but they looked so awsome! Whenever i had a cop behind me i would turn without putting the signal until i started getting pulled over for that as well :D

I have a tail light red-out overlay that seems so minor but would be copbait in my state. More noticeable would be the GoPro hanging from the rear view mirror that "obstructs vision" according the law but I have not been pulled over for either one yet.

I have HIDs in my headlights and fog lights and 25% tint (legal limit is 35%). The cops around here really could care less though since crime is fairly high in the city. They have bigger fish to fry.

I have to have 35 all around...the hassle its just not worth it. When you have an ass pull you over if he has something on ya your fkd...

I had a decal above my third brake light...cop said it was covering it(it wasnt)...then he started giving me shit about my tints...i go i got 35 all around and give him the professional shops warranty and product card that states my tints were 38 percent... he gets his machine and tests it...they come out at like 33.8 percent...so he gives me a ticket for obstructing my third brakelight and then puts the warning for the tints on there as excessive tint... so basicly i couldnt fight it because if i did then they could cite me for tints.... ughhh

4% tint- legal limit is 20% rear 35% front
I have no cats on my exhaust
My exhaust is definitely loud enough to be cited for a noise violation
Oh and tomorrow I'm tinting my taillights for sure and will possibly be tinting my headlights and fogs as well.

Cops are pretty laid back here, but there is one in my town that will stop you for any and everything if he can:(

We're mods, our title is in the title. Full on legal.

Only hot box mod on my Civic was removing the front license plate. Cited after 9 miles of driving. I had to put it back on :pout:
