Limo tint

Should I use limo tint on my white mustang? Asking because I think it may look better not so dark shade if tint. Which percentage do you think I should buy?

Get the darkest you legally can... Getting fix it tickets gets old... You can likely go as dark as you want on the back and quarter windows...

I agree but my friend is a cop so I can get written off easily and just pay the fee , but I'm asking like if it'll look good to go all dark or just get a different shade to compliment to color.

It always "looks" bada$$ with blacked out tint...

But just understand the safety aspect at night... Limo on the sides is really really difficult to see out of (think of backing up using mirrors) and also, lets face it, if you get pulled over and an officer can't see you... Sometimes bad things happen.

Your choice... Just because you can ( because you have a friend) doesn't mean you should.

Mine looks freakin dark and is 100% legal.

I had the dealership put on the darkest "Texas legal" tint they could.

So it must be 35% based on the sticker. I really don't remember.

So why would you tint your windows darker and get the Po Po a reason to pull you over?

White cars make the tint look darker already. If you were asking about blue tint or something then no.

20% is the best shade out there in my opinion
