I think I got ripped off

i went and got my car tinted today and got 20%. it doesnt look dark at all more like 35%. i'm going to compare it with my freind's S10 20% tint tomorrow. after i payed the cashier he told me it comes with a lifetime warrenty, but i wont get a reciept because they sold me illegal tint. so if i get a ticket i cant say they installed it for me. If something happends to it, how would i get the warrenty claim since i dont have a reciept to prove them i bought it there?

they probably have a record of the sale on file that they can look you up. 20% should be pretty dark. I dont know why they would scam you though. Its not like the tint film cost any different anyways. When tinting you are pretty much paying for the install.

I didn't get a receipt for mine since it was a cash deal, but I still got some warrenty paperwork.
