Also, I stand corrected...
Very much man enough to admit that.
If I had somehow known that he was gonna post that 3 minutes later, I would've said nothing.

We need to be weary of the number of pictures and gifs we post here, lest we bring on the images of GRIFFIN to this forum. Some say that he can detect when a gif is posted even when he has no signal bars.

you mad bro?

i never said you did, im saying you are embarrassing yourself flaming another (well known and respected) member, just because youre jealous of how popular he is or you have a man-crush or whatever. the internet is the great equalizer, nobody knows what you look like or where you came from. its only what you type that you are known for. you get treated like you act and have no one to blame for that but yourself.

edit: @zell +1 some say

The member posted:

"why not just paint all the chrome inside the headlight black instead of tinting the lens? then it will look like tinted headlights but will still be safe. only suggest this if you have xenons."

He was clearly talking about the headlight trim that MANY other members have painted with much success, and what seems to be the exact look of the car in your sig. So again, you're response about painting reflective surface was ignorant and irrelevant.

I don't see why you think you can (assuming you're a moderator and did it yourself) delete posts made about you just because it makes you look bad. That's not fair to the other members that have to live with being wrong and stupid looking all over the rest of the forum. I know that being wrong can be tough, but take it like a man. And while you're at it, stop playing the victim. I don't get emotional. I just use logic to argue valid points to people that think they are entitled to being rude and unhelpful just because the have "seniority".

I assumed this was an adult forum. I stand corrected...


right...

Almost irresistible urge to toss gas on the fire.. Or is it just me..

Tinting headlights or windshields is a free pass for any cop that sees you to pull you over...

In some jurisdictions they can impound the car until you provide bonded
transportation to the nearest shop that can make the car legal.

Just depends on the day...

If you like the light tint look, try it man. You'll never know. People manage it. It's your car bro. A lot of people are about OEM on here though.
