I may be duplicating someone else's post about "legal/non-legal" front side window tint, but in the state of Tx, you can actually go darker than the state limit as long as you have a state approved application decision which requires a physicians note on their letterhead stating the reason why it is necessary for the driver to have darker tint OR a prescription (dated within one year). This will help you avoid tickets and help you PASS state inspection!

nice! i have the same exact color / model. right now, i have only 3 windows tinted because the dealer ripped off the drivers side/rear door tint off when they pulled the window sticker. so i'm getting the whole car redone for free.

can't wait, been driving around with just the passenger side/rear, hatch and two sm. triangles tinted.

You should use Sonny's in Saugus - they've been tinting since the 60's. Mine looks perfect months later. $175 installed for Madico http://www.sonnysglasstinting.com/se...utomotive.html. 35%

Here is a pic from a while back, FormulaONE Pinnacle Series Film 15% all around. Never had any problems with the police though I did modify my taillight housings to accommodate 120 SMD LED reverse bulbs (brightest reverse bulbs I've ever seen!). Also no imperfections in the tint that I can find Also the Audi in the background has the same film but 35%

Is that 5% on the front windshield too? Is that legal on FL? How the hell do you see out of the car at night?

That's not legal anywhere.
No windshield tint (aside from the top) is legal in any US states.
5% isn't legal in Florida (or any other state at least on the fronts) anyways haha.
Does look awesome though.

Ohhh... gotcha. Looks tinted in the picture. Live in a border city & I do see a lot of Candian drivers with their entire front windshield tinted. Not 5%... but still. I can't imagine that's legal in Canada. Either way... your car looks great!

70% tint on the entire windshield is allowed in Ohio. I think this is one of the few states that allows it.
