I have 30% in the front and 20% on the back and the strip on my front windshield. I believe in Fl darkest you can go in the front is 27% and 15% in the back...but it varies from state to state

The place where I got mine done had 3 options. One was light, one was medium but dark, and the other was dark. I got medium on the front window and dork on the rear and quarter panels. Both are illegal and I haven't been messed with. I want to say it look like 30%-20%

Satoshi, i think the tint percentage in japan might be backwards to that of the USA... no? confused

here in USA, percentage number means, "visual percent", ... meaning; at what percent can you actually see through to the other side.

30% visibility means that when outside, you can only see 30% through

0% visibility means that when you are outside, you cannot see anything - its the equivalent to going one-way-Mirror style with your window wave

mine has been off and then back on 3 times now...

but most recently I have just been telling the cops that I prefer the "non-correctable" tickets over the "Fix-It" tickets.

I'd rather extend the ticket pay date out the full 4 months and pay $72 (while being able to cary around my "get out of jail", "non correctable" ticket for those 4 months)... then having to pay to get everythng removed and inspected within 3 weeks - then pay again to have it put back on - only to get pulled over again 3 days after that wave

19% all the way around. no problems with police.

most police will not pull you over just for tint. but if you get pulled over for a moving violation, most police will add the tinted windows to your ticket.

I have 35% all 'round but front windows are peeling so I'm thinking of peeling it all and doing 20% all 'round. Eventhough it's illegal in NJ to tint your front windows so hell with it. I'll probably do it anyway...

Hey, I'm in alberta, I tinted my sides (both the triangle ones and the driver/passenger windows 35% and the rear window 20%. Haven't had any trouble yet. But I do make sure I obey the speed limits (keep it under 10k over LOL) and haven't had a stitch of trouble. Go for it man.

The guy told me my driving would attract more attention than my windows. I haven't been hassled for my 35% tint on the sides, but I'm sure if I get a ticket, they might throw the tint infraction in for a bit of icing on the cake. But there are a LOT of people with windows as dark as mine around.

I've been told that my tint is too dark for the state of Ga. You can't see in it during the day and during the night it's just jet black. My car right now is that celica blue that looks black. I also have my front windsheild tinted very light because of the dark strip over the front and the other windows so it make the full front windsheild looks like its clear. I have gotten 2 speeding ticket goning from ga to al, but the cop never mentioned the tent.

Minnesota has some strict ass laws, but I'm gonna tint mine way below the legal limit anyway. Besides I have my windows down a lot of the times, and the cops in my town are stupid anyway.
