Here in Norway, it is illegal to drive a car with spraycan-tinted lights,
no matter how lightly they are tinted. I bet this goes for all of Europe.
Also tinted lexan covers for the lights are illegal too. The only things
legal are "real" colored lights with e-codes on them, like the Treser or
Hella black lights.
