Yep...after owning my car for 1 year I FINALLY got some tint on it haha. Dont ask me why I waited so long because I dont even know.

I got 20% all around, (didnt do the sunroof, because than whats the point of a sunroof?) LoL.

Let me know what you guys think, thanks.

with tint 1

with tint 2

with tint 3

The pictures were taken with my cell phone, and came out prreettyy damn good (I love my phone...hah). I have some on a digital camera, that I might post later...but might be pointless since these came out okay.

Yeah, I was about to say the exact same thing. I have 20% on mine and mine are probably 4 times darker then that lol

Technically. When the cop tested it, it was 17% lol.

heres mine at "somewhat" of the same angle as yours.

its definitely 20%....it might be just the pictures. I had 5% on my car before this so its ahue change for me. I like that you sort of see in...but not completely. compared to the 5% where u can't see in at all.

I didn't think 20% was legal in most states, I'm pretty sure 5% definitely isn't.

How the hell do you guys even see at night? I have the legal (35%) amount in my area and frankly I wouldn't want it any darker at night. It's sometimes hard to see where I'm backing up to if its dark behind me.

Maybe I'm just getting old.......... :nopity:

Not to sound cruel but I sorta have to agree. They're ok by camera phone standards but pretty bad by comparison to a real digital camera, even a cheap one.

35% used to be as low as you could go in GA but they did away with the tint laws a couple years ago because they were deemed "unfair". So I plan on going 20% sometime soon.

Tint law in Iowa is no lower the 75% in front and as fdark as you want for the rest. But i whent with 20% all the way around.

So far it's costed me $80 for a tint ticket lol. oh well. it's what I get

and to answer you DennisW. I think it's a pain in the ass to see at night. I agree with you on that factor.

I have 20%, Technically 17% is what the cop got when he tested my windows. But you can not see through my windows at all in to the car. when it's bright as shit you can verly see in to my car. Enough to see a if someone is in it but not enough to tell even who it could be.



Turbo eh? :)

Yes sir. I have the garage rented to start the day after my B-day (nov 15). Garaged for the winter so I can take my sweet ass time on it so I don't fuck up lol.

The law was reenacted! It is 32%, so if you go lower, don't be suprised if you are stopped, Especially in Cobb county!

The stealies will not be on anymore come next spring. I am hoping the exhaust won't be stock either for the set up come next spring. But I have my wedding in April. So we will see how far I can go before i'm chastized from the 6 lol.
