Will I pass inspection in NY?

I have tints and headlight reflector covers (to cover the orange in the headlight). Actually, my SA told me I'd be ok with the tints. I'm not sure whether he meant that it's actually fine, or if he'll "take care of it".

So essentially I'm wondering if I have to take my reflector covers off? I double-sided taped them and don't wanna have to rip them off lol. Also, is there anything else I should take into consideration?

Thanks

I had my corner lights coded out and had no problem getting my inspection done at the dealership. If the computer doesn't throw any bulb out codes, they just pass it. think it was 35 or 40 at the service center in Port Chester.

Went to Boston Rd, it was $37 but I didn't pass cuz I installed JB4 the day before and didn't have ~120 miles recorded yet lmao... he said come back when I put miles on it, and he'll pass me.

309 11th ave NY NY (Right next to jacob javit center) Say you are Danny's friend. They will pass you, as long as the emissions and check engine light is good.

As long as you pass emissions you shouldn't have any problems.

A place that bothers you is probably hustling for work. Can't really blame them - everybody needs to eat, right?

Mobil Gas, right? I used to run a spot right around the corner.

Correct, it's a Mobil station. The mechanics are pretty cool. For inspection they will pass you, as long as the comp passes you. They don't care about tints and what not. Unless you are a douche to them to start with.

I recently got my injectors changed there, so they have the tool to do it. But you need to find someone to code them in after.
