I've had white on black for over 3 years; no issue with police. I think this combo looks good with tints and other mods. Mine are not painted, 3M self-adhesive tint.

Plus 1 for me. I really don't understand why people would not want the reflectors. If it kept somebody from crashing into me on a dark night - that would be a good thing, right? I think the orange reflectors look fine and are nicely integrated into the design.

I'd leave the reflectors orange. My safety comes before vanity. I also wear my seatbelt, don't tint my windows, take off my sunglasses when the sun is not out.

Having a front plate is not a safety issue, I don't, although I did get a ticket in California once for that (in combination with the ticket for a u-turn in a four-lane highway).

Really, I need a 3rd post to become vested in this forum.

This the way to go for me; dude tinted his reflectors instead of painting them. (I admit it probably looks better on a dark car...)
