Re: Tint?

My '10 Malibu is at 15% tint + factory tint. I've never even heard a whisper from the police here, but they really don't care. They'll only slap you with a tint violation if you're caught for something else. I just find 20% to be a hair too dark.

Locale matters a lot when deciding whether to stay legal or not.

15 is darker... I thought you meant too light? Perhaps?

I meant 15% to be a hair too dark. My Grand Prix is 35% and I'm going with 35% on my Mustang.

Hell, I'd easily go 15, but you're a cop magnet.

My tint was 14% including factory tint. I never had any problems seeing out. All it does is prevent lookyloos from seeing in.

As I say a true 20% isn't that dark. In direct sunlight it's still allows a good amount of light in. I love my 20.

You have to really pay attention to notice the difference, IMO.

Like I said, go legal...you'll likely regret it if you don't.
It kinda sucks though when your legal limit is 75% though lol

True, I am speaking more to the people who live in the 25-35% areas. 75% is a joke.

Re: Tint?

I was thinking about 35 Front, and rest 20. If anyone has a lighter front how noticeable is it? Should i just do 20 round?
