here you can get a very good quality tint job for a ballpark figure of $150.

and personally..i think the best shades of tint are the ones that are right at the legal limit. this will avoid problems with the law and they are usually provide adequate protection as well as cooling advantages.

for a list of tinting laws by state, you can click on this link: tinting laws by state

yep...$150 is a good price for all the windows, except for the windsheild.

I say a good tint is 35% in the front and mayb 20% in the rear.

if doing all windows/glasses, a good price is 100-120. also remember that when you tint the rear glass dark black (limo tint) you wont be able to see shit at night when ur backing up from a parking lot at night. thats the disadvantage of dark tints, take that into consideration if you still dont have them tinted.

Go with Mirror or titanium tint!!! You can go legal limits with it and still get the complete privacy that you want from limo tint. I had mine done a year ago and most of the time its real hard to get a good look inside.

Looks smooth at night driving in the city.

titanium tint is a shade of black.
i think its called titanium because its supposed to not fade or bubble but if it does, there's a lifetime warranty that will cover the price to redo the tint.

i dont find Mirror tint matching with black color. its good with silver and thats maybe about it.
as for the tinting law, do a search on this site, isaac had posted a topic about it before.

I think the different darknesses look off when there's a BIG difference, like %5 rear, %75 front, but mine actually looks decent (see in my sig), I don't think it looks off. confused
And yeah I think the mirror tint only looks good if it matches the color of the car... I saw a red car with red mirror and a blue with blue mirror and they both looked nice... but then I saw a yellow one with silver and it looked awful.

But you got to remember, California is completely different from Mississippi...they may not do the same things. And it all depends on who does your tint for you. 35% is legal here, but the guy that did my tint will put a sticker on your car even if you have 5%. Check into your tint laws...there was a link above? You may not need a sticker like I do.

Mississippi has state inspection stickers. Not all states do, I'm not sure. Maybe it's because we are the poorest state in the US and they just want a way to get an extra $5 out of everyone that owns a vehicle. But anyway, if a car has aftermarket tint, we have to have a little sticker that says it meets the tint laws for the state (35% all around). This tint sticker is required in order to get an inspection sticker here. I have a sticker, but my tint is 20%. So I still may have trouble getting an inspection sticker.
