    Its california. My guess is no. Reality is nobody will care unless its the cause of someone not seeing your signal and they plow into you. Odds of that are less than 1%.

    Interesting, so many vehicles (lower trim Tacomas and 4Runners) don't even have side mirror turn signals. Why would California care tinted or not, if they are not required?

    I have had them on my truck for a month now and they work great and look good. Not fully black more of smoke look but still look much better than the stock chrome ones and are like 10x brighter than the stock mirror signal
