Car looks alot better with the tint hands down. Unfortanely ya can't get darker. It does suck that some states have the laws but then again its for the cops saftey.






But with all that said I'm still getting 15% in back and 5% in front after inspection lol.

I think the tint looks pretty good. Yeah, darker would be better, but you don't want trouble! :wink:

I'm thinking 50% is the limit I'm going with on my Bonneville (it's also the legal limit in Ohio). The LeSabre has 35% (wasn't by choice, it was either that or nothing), and let's say I've already been in trouble once for it.

I find myself doing what Haro mentioned in the LeSabre - rolling down my fronts when I see a cop (state patrol, locals don't care)!

Yeah, I , too, think getting the top tinted will help darken it all around.

EDIT: I must be an idiot, I kept thinking 35%, but my tint is actually 20% (or that is what I was told)! #-o
