tint
does tint really make the car look that much better? I am thinking about getting 20% or 35% all around. Should i go for it? what do you guys think? Car is black also.

tint looks best on a black car. go for all around with the darkest allowed on the lighest allowed (get it?) so, if you can get Mirror on back, but only 35% on sides, get 35% all around.

Yes it looks good. Does anyone know what the stock windows are tinted including the front windshield?

I think thats because of the angle. You will get tickets for 20% most likely unless its just the back like his.

50??? If I was to get tint I was thinking around 40-50 but I am not sure how dark the stock windows are.

Just to verify... lower number = darker tint right? So 5 means 5% of light comes thru, ie. dark dark tint... sometimes i read posts and i think i have it backwards cause people are talking about numbers like 50... wouldnt 50 be super light tint? confused

Correct. Either way 50 percent would be half and half so I was confused as well why he said he needed to roll down his windows.

^hehehe
I have 35% all around. If you take it to a decent tint shop that has experience they will know how to match the new tints to keep you legal. I think 35% is really nice, it's legal in Ma and it's also really functional but at the same time is dark enough to look nice. I used like 50% film on my sides and it came out to about 36% if you were looking for a benchmark The reason I know is because they very next day I got inspected and they gave me a light test before they would pass me.
