    Not sure about fitting reflectors somewhere else but those lights are not road legal, 99% sure as one of my friends was pulled over and almost fined for having his sprayed tinted (no where near as dark as those). i think its just one of those things that they will pull you for if they are in a bad mood.

    they look nice tho

    illegal as they are yes however if your get a stick on reflector (nothing massive) for each side then they become perfectly legal

    like i said above,

    the other problem is that they might not allow the correct amount of light through and with them being soooooo dark they probably wont be very bright
