New rims, headunit, and tint

I got a couple pics wait tell i say done. O and well the rims arnt new. I just took my 17's off for the winter and put my now 'bronze' stock rims back on. The tint is not that dard its 35%all the way around and front sides are 50%. I kept it legal. The headunit is by panisonic.

Wait what? You got in trouble because of the Clear Corners? I did not know that you can get pulled over because of it, hmmm...

That is what 50% tint looking like? I was going to go 75% all around just to be legal, hmmm...might just leave untinted if 50% already looks like that.

i have 5% and havent had a single problem...



never heard of tint going up to 75% but im guessing its just a hint of tint on the glass??? where you catch it in the right light you can see theres a lil bit of darkness on it???

got a tickett for $87. i figured even if i could get a way w/tint for like a year its still not worth it getting it redone. and then it could happen again.

I have the same headunit as well..does yours skip like a mofo? seems like every bump i encounter, no matter how small it may be, it's a gauranteed skip

I have the same one... and YES!

It's fine if the disc has NO flaws, but if it has the slightest scratch, it skips.

do you mean skip as in gets stuck on a song. like mine has gotten stuck like 7 times on a random song. and these are new cd's. it dosnt skip it just stops playing. for some reason it always happens on a 33 like 1:33, 3:33 mins.

When i went to circuit city to check it out this guy was like dont buy this. People bring these in here like once a week gettin them fixed.
