Which one looks better? HA:D:p

Still need to get my windows tinted. Haven't had time!:( I think I'm getting 15 % any else has 15 %? Who has limo tint? I'm afraid that will be too dark on it.

Nice! Thanks for sharing man! Hmmmmm...15% might be too dark! I personally wouldnt go past 20-25% but I would suggest to google pics of 15% tint to at least get an idea, as well as different percentages!

33% on front and 4% on back windows (all ceramic). I don't think it's too dark but I'm use to it. Texas sun can really burn a car up in the summer. Have your tint guy hold up samples to the light.
Is 33% state law requirement, or your preference?

Lucky, up here the front door tints have to be 70% or higher. Doesn't even make sense to have legal tints in NY if your rear can be 35% and the front has to be 70%

This is mine after a wash and polish. The tint is 3M 30%. Since the interior is dark it makes it look darker than it is. I probably could have gone to a 25 or 20% at most and would have looked good but any lower I think would be too dark.

Thanks! Well I think every brand is different, so the colors tend to look slightly different even it's the same percentage. Even between the 3M versions the colors were slightly different. I thought my Acura had 40% but it might have had 35%, I just don't remember.

Things went well and didn't take them long to do. I think they were slightly expensive but they had good recommendations and they did a good job on my car. So I would recommend them.

BTW, it isn't as dark as it looks, it's was sundown and I polished the windows as well so there is the reflection too.

Yeah, if it's not too dark. At 30% you can still see the driver and if anyone is in the passenger seat, so they might give you a warning a if they pull you over for something else. BUT, if you're tint is too dark and the CHP can't see you at all then you will most likely get pulled over just for your tint and will give you a ticket. I've had all my cars window tinted in CA and have never been pulled over.

Thanks for the encouragement. I probably just go 40% just to be on the safe side. It's 94 degree outside and when I get in the car, it's HOT.
I wish mine is tinted now.

Absolutely, you should get it. You can always get 20-30% on the rear windows and then 30 or 40 on the fronts.

I'd say it depends! I was pulled over for having a 35% front tint! But then again it was more of an add-on to my speeding ticket!

Exactly. I've been pulled over but never got a ticket for my tint.

I have a lot of friends that are police and they say they don't pull people over for tint unless it's way too dark and they can't see them or they are driving like an A$$.

Ahhh! That's good to know man! Hopefully 35% is fine with them then!
