wtf Um...do it. It looks good. I havent heard anyone ever say they dont like it. I like the same percent tint all around if thats what you mean but its no big deal. Just dont get any of those colored tints wink

i might go w/ 20% but after I kit my car and get my rims i'll see if I wanna do it. But i really like the idea of no one seeing whose in my car.

i have darkest leagal, i dont knwo what that is % wise. everycar we get the 1st thing we do is ting. but in florida its a must. the only reason not to tint a sports car is becasue if you spend 100,000 on a nice porsche you want people to knwo who is in it wink

I can tint it as dark as I want, I just get it registered through someone I know and I'll be fine. I don't even have on a front licenseplate.

i got 20 percent on my car too all around. U should definetely tint the same percentage all around, and go as dark as you feel you can drive with. Cuz a friend of mine had an infiniti i35 with limo tint all around, and at nights it would get hard to see out of the driver and passenger windows.

yeah limo tint is the darkest and can't see at night. i have 35% on the front side and 20% for the rest. i had to keep the front legal so cops won't bother me. thumbsdown

the reason i dont get tints is becuase i cant see cops as clearly, or wont see cops as clearly in my rear view if im going a bit too fast, or if ive had had one or two drinks... thumbsdown


besdies i think my vision is obstructed when i had tints before, i didnt like that. thumbsdown

some people need the tint as a securtiy blanket.
some don't.
just take a look at the reasons you have for getting one.

i'd rather have my windows clear.. but i've been thinking about tinting my car since its a daily driver.. it wont get so hot.. and i guess its like a security blanket.. i feel cleaner inside tinted cars or something.
