TX inspection is not always a cinch.
Took son #1s car to three places in Lubbock, would not pass it because they said the after market window tint was too dark. Did they measure it.. nope, did it matter that it has passed inspection three times in the past with the tint... nope. Did it matter that it was a muscle car, white, after market rims painted white and gold, legal radar detector, amped up stereo with bone shaking bass and generally looked like a stereotypical pimp mobile..... possibly. Yes I too question his taste!

Got back to Houston, 5 minutes at Jiffy Lube PASSED.

He routinely was stopped by the local cops who said that there was something wrong with his break lights. When specifically asked, "What is it sir and I will immediately get it fixed", they could never be specific other than they look funny. Standard vehicle issue, no after market mods.... Profiling? maybe
