Nice! 35% is the limit where I live, so I'm really interested to see how it turns out. Should go great with the candy apple!

Thanks guys. I can surprisingly see very well out the rear window and the 35% on the side widows seem perfect. I was considering going 45% in the front but I'm glad I decided on 35%. It really makes a big difference on the appearance of the car. #surprised.

Your lucky that your allowed 35%. Where I am there is no limit on the rear and back windows but there is a 75% law on the front driver/passenger,basically the factory tint, so I'm playing with fire having it at 35%. The guy quoted me 20$ to remove it if I get a 48hr from the police. He also told me its 80$ to then get it inspected to lift the 48hr.

Hey i plan on doing my tint on Saturday and they quoted me for $250 for PanaFlex Ceramic Window Films. It supposedly rejects heat keeping the car cool.

This is what i am takling about Ceramic Window Films

They have great reviews on google but it seems kind of expensive.

They also say if i want to do the windshield ( i plan on doing it at 70% ) it will cost me $125.



Any advice ?

Was literally calling around to shops today to get that done. Got quoted around $275 for only the two windows! In my f150 had a shop do 5 windows for 100 bucks
That back window looks darkk, just the way I would want mine done, good buy bro

Still thinking of getting mine done this weekend. I'm a little worried the 20% will be too hard to see out of at night. How do you like yours?

I was thinking about getting 35% all the way around. I guess here in Connecticut you can't tint the front window, only sides and rear.

Looks good! I have 40% on my front windows(legal limit) and 15% on the quarter windows and rear windshield. I really want to get the front windows darker eventually, Probably 15% to match the back windows.

Hey thanks. The legal limit here is 75% on the front windows so at 35% I'm playing with fire! Lol.

I paid $440 for my tint and to make my headlights darker...
I also got my windshield done with 70% and 6 inch stripe.
will post pics this week.


I got 35% all around (32% is legal here in GA)


I also selected tint that is suppose to reduce the heat coming in the car.

Hope i didnt get ripped off

Does 35% give a dark enough look to make it look good? I have a black car and live in CT so we have pretty restrictive laws regarding tint. Also is 35% still easy to see through at night?

I have 40% and I wish I would have gone darker, even though that is the legal limit here in LA. You won't have any problems seeing at night. I would say go darker than 35%, but I'm a fan of dark tint so I guess I'm biased.

Can't wait to see some day time pics.

I'm debating on doing tint on my windows but am hesitant since I don't know how it will effect the cars look. Hence, waiting on your pics!

P.s, move south, get away from the snow. I ditched MN last year and couldn't see myself going back to that craziness.

IMO darker tint obviously looks better but for practicality I would stick with 35-40%. Not only is it legal but its still easy to see out of especially at night. I had a car before with 5% all around and although it looked great at night I would always have to have my windows down because I couldn't see anything and almost became a safety issue. Although I suppose it's all personal preference.

I would call around a few shops and see what is available. There's a place local to me that has samples available so not only can you see all the different percentages side by side they have samples you can hold up to your car to get an idea of what it will look like.

Yes it does . It still looks cool but you can definitely see through it from outside in the sunlight. At night its very dark.

I think 20% is the best for all around as far as perfect coolness factor and visability.


That is illigal here in georgia so I didnt wanna worry if ill get pulled over everytime I see a cop so I just did 35% all around.
