I'm about to have what will be nearly 2k of stereo in my car... and I have no anti-theft measures at all. The first thing I'm thinking is getting my windows tinted (also, I hate how hot my car gets). I've never looked into it before though, so what is a good tint %? I just want a normal black tint... nothing crazy. What should each window be to look good, be effective, and NOT draw major police attention?
I'm just a crosshair I'm just a shot away from you
I had 5% all around which is wayyyy to dark at night then I put 15% on and I didn't like it at night either...I'm on 50% right now and I love it! and I don't have to roll down my window everytime a see a cop
got it all wrong noob... the smaller the percentage the darker
that wasn't intended to make me feel good
the guy that did my tinting called my sunroof 50%. My side and rear windows are 35%, and they are lighter, so i assumed (at least by their standards) that they were talking about the amount of light blocked...either that or they're bass ackwards.
tint will only get you so far of an anti theft technique, but an alarm system will do better... whether or not you get 15% or 50%, you still can see the deck or the rear (if the back cover is not put up.) i have 15% in the back, and you still can see everything from the trunk to my face in some light angels...
if you want to use tint as an anti theft way, id say go for limo tint...all around... (but i wouldnt if i were you )
Limo the back window. 5%. The sides I would do around 30%, maybe less.
I finally got rolled for my tint. Fucking CSUSM campus police for tint and no front lisence plate. Talk about fags! They must have been bored, theres nothing to get ppl for at my school. Even city police left me alone for 3 months. Now I have to fix it, but you better believe its going back on!
