i hear ya. i wanna get dark tints, but dont want to deal with cops.
i do have a question. (a little off the topic) think someone can get away with 35% front and 15-20% rear tint in so cali.
i've been pulled over 6 different times with an 18% tint up front...
then i completed the exterior of my car and ALWAYS keep it clean... havent been pulled over since November 2002
besides this, I dont drive like a maniac, I watch out for police and pull off the freeway or to the side of the road and wait if I do see one.
