In my opinion, its one of the first things that should done to any car. You'll notice a big difference in the look of the car, and your interior stays cooler. Post up pics when its done.

Well actually I lied I bought it used and it had Roush ab. From what I can tell it has nothing else done I talked the dealer into a bumper to bumper warranty for $250. So I won't be doing much else until that's up. But will post pics when it's done!

Re: Getting tint right now!!

Car looks great with the tint. That was my first mod as well. I bought my car on friday and had tint done on Saturday.

You know TX is way to hot/bright to not have tent.

They are part if a package. They are not aftermarket rims They have the mustang logo In the center. They were listed as optional 19 in wheels on the spec sheet. Maybe you guys can help me. I don't know what it is to have a Premium package. Does it say in the car anywhere that its a premium? The car has SYNC, Shaker sound system, changeable lights on the accents and the dash, leather seats, power everything, front fog lights, and more options. Could I have purchased a premium or is there something specific that's makes a premium.

The car doesn't have anything that says its premium. It sounds like you have the premium option though (leather seats, Sync, etc.). You can always check the window sticker, or you can go online (Ford website) to see what a premium package brings.

5% on the rear windshield and rear windows and 30% on the front windows. Maximum legal in Texas.

How would you tell if you had the brembo package? Sorry for all the nooblet questions. This is my first sports car and I was looking at camaros. I'm glad I made the right choice but I've got alot of learning to do!!!

Just checked out another car with brembo calipers. I do not have those.

How does the dot matrix look on your windows? I just got mine done and the matrix is visible. Anyone else like this? Any ideas to remedy it?

Re: Getting tint right now!!

Tint looks great! kind of off topic question here; Anyone ever thought about tinting your windshield. I know its illegal but how does it look and is it annoying at night?

Not just a whole lot you can do.. The water from the tint gets trapped in between the dots and won't let it stick.. And it doesn't stick to the dots either.. A good tinter can make it look pretty decent.. One trick we use at our shop is peeling it back and using elmers clear school glue.. But I recommend a pro doing it..

I'm not sure how VA is but if you go to your eye doctor slide him $50 he'll write you something that allows you to have a tinted windshield for "medical reasons"

If you can get a doctors sig on something saying that your sensitive to sunlight u can usually get away with it.. Not sure where your at.. But it looks good for sure and as far as at night just don't go darker than 35% or 40%.. They make a ceramic film that's like 80% that helps keep even more heat out but not as much on the brightness obviously...

I'm also in VA. But soon as my mustang comes in I'm going to the tint shop. I'll have to ask em about the windshield tint, see if they have any cars with it there.
