Not that I am saying the police are right, but you really shouldn't have anything on the front windows. I am not knowledgeable on tint %'s and I don't know how dark you had it before but you have to put yourself in a cops shoes. I would not want to be walking up to some car with dark ass tints all around, you can't see inside. Could get accidently shot.

At least a girl here in Chicago did...not because of tints but she was reaching in her purse for a cell, cop thought it was a gun and shot her, she died. Same thing could happen to someone with dark tints...cop cant CLEARLY see you and might pull his gun out.

No offense, but your before is way too dark for a regular everyday car. It looks really nice and clean but if you are going to be driving it everyday, its wayyy too dark.

I am not sure how it is by you, but out here, you would have a ticket soo fast. Like I said, I am not knowledgeable about tint, but I do know that in my area (Chicago and surrounding burbs) you would get pulled over.

I said it looked good, so not sure whats up with the thumbsdown. confused

yea i live in chicago and i have really dark tints all around, i've been lucky so far but it isn't my daily driver so that is also a factor of why i havne't gotten pulled over, but usually when i see a cop i roll down the windows so i dont get bothered because they WILL pull us over cry

I think the rule is..your tint is allowed if the cop can identify you as a male or female driver..not sure though

I believe the "before" shot looks good...but is way too dark as well...but IMO you should still be able to tint the front windows a certain percentage at least...cops can still see in thumbsup

Thats another thing in Chicago/IL...no front plate and you get a ticket. I just put it on so I don't have to have the hassle. My bf gets pulled over for that and he just acts dumb that he doesn't know how to put it on (he has a grand am and there is a special covering that goes over the plate part, he claims he doesn't know that it comes off).

35% should be okay...i suggest something a little lighter though...just for insurance. 20% all around are pretty dark. that's like isaac's car...it looks super hot though thumbsup

yeah, it happened a few years ago (less than 5 I believe). I am trying to find the story, I can't recall her name. But I guess as the cop was walking towards the car, she reached for her cell, he thought it was a gun and shot her. That is why you are always told, keep your hands in full view the whole time.

Don't worry, I got limo tint in the rear and nothing in the front, it's not bad at all! Even if it looks nasty to other's, I got mine so no one can see my subs. Looks good!

well my friend got same ticket as me.. but he has 15% all around.. then he changed his front two windows to 35% after he got a ticket..35% which is smokey (meaning you can see the driver) and hes been driving around for about 3 years with those windows and cops dont care as long as they can see you.

and mine is 20% all around and then it willbe 35% in front so it wont be as bad as his.. DO YOU GET IT

i like living here in colorado, its aways freaking bright, so everyone can get really dark tint, the only bad part is the back window being so dark espcecially during the night, but during the day its so nice

by the way what % tint is that on your windows (i dont have tint yet, my dad does, stock on his camry, bought here in colorado) my celica was bought back in chicago

re-tint right away man. f*ck the police. if you do end up leaving the tint off the front, take it back in and get like 35% on the triangle windows and leave the back one, kind of a sweeping darkness towards the back. its the only way to make that look good.
