when you got lit up, do you roll all the windows down and put your hands on the wheel? If you didn't, he probably had his hand on his side arm. In police training they call these exercises "getcha killed" stops.

LOL, I bet he loved you!
Do you have the tint all the way around? Here in California you can do the rear and rear window as much as you want. If you do anything to the windshield or the front driver/passenger windows you can potentially run into trouble.

The windshield I have the %5 10 inches down from the top. That's the legal length here. Makes a huge difference no sun on the steering wheel. The front and rear side windows are %5 Back too. This is what my tint looks like.

Your car looks nice. Like mine looking factory but that looks wicked. There was a white yukon cruising around here with with and black palm tree pattern tint like stuff on it. Sure it must be that stuff that all these work cars get put on to advertise. Thought it would look cool on my car with the dark blue and make it really pop but would be way to obnoxious. Get pulled over enough as it is. Got a good one back in february, insurance had another policy renewal and they didn't raise the rate yet. Hopefully they never will

Good advice regarding rolling down all windows - it's been a while since I have been pulled over, but it seems like a good idea.

Thanks. My DTS does get a lot of attention with the dark tint the OMAC plate and the glass like black paint with the vogues. Unfortunately occasionally it gets the attention of a bored officer looking to write a ticket. He seemed disappointed that I was legal lol. Because my caddy is so unusual I was able to add it on my antique car insurance. My 1972 Lincoln Mark IV and my DTS with full coverage costs less than $450 a year. My RAM Limited and my 06 xterra I still have to keep on my commerce Ins policy. Full coverage for them here is a little over $3k

Strong cars, and didnt have to disect the whole damn car to change a simple bulb. Strong steel bumpers, and doors. You could spin the rear wheels upon pressing the gas, points ignition in distributor cap, adjust timing with a light. The good old cars!!!
My father and uncles showed me much.
That Mark IV is a GEM Omac!
