This may be dumb, and it's prolly already been suggested, but could you hyperlink the items in the list? That would make misinformation minimized and would speed up any searches or possible duplicate questions.

What kind of tint could you do on the break lights that would look good but not illegal?

Get some BBQ BLACK spray paint and carefully paint the stock muffler, so that it visually disappears when viewed from the rear. Make sure the muffler is clean and rough it up first with some coarse emery paper. Got this tip from the G5club.net site and it sure looks nice on my 07 G5 Victory Red Sedan!

Yes there is what you do is go to ACE hardware or a hardware store and they will have plastic plugs and there is a small one for the fronts and then bigger ones for the back ill post pics in my profile later tonight. I have dents from removing mine =(. But you will get the point and I used caulk for a house to seal the back two ill show that in the pic also. I just used a pluming kit from walmart to secure the things in the trunk makes it nice and tight!

Get some turtle wax bug & tar remover, put a little on a cloth, rub it all over the adhesive and then just work at it with your fingernail.
Safest way.
