    darn those MFers!!!! He put me out of service today because I had a 3psi per minute Air Leak. Which is borderline but pefectly legal. That Ass whipe. I told him that and he didnt want to hear about it. I then mentioned how come they call every now and then to get donations? his face expression was my reward.

    My old man just had 20 (rear) and 35 (sides) put on his c5, and I can see through his fine when standing next to his. However, if you stand next to my ws6, you can't see shit inside it, even in broad daylight.

    not sure what the law is in ur state but i would just go with the legal limit. true u can roll them down when they walk up to the car but that only works if they pull you over for something other than ur tints. I went really dark in the back and love it except when i have to back up at night. i wouldn't bother tinting the t tops, they're already tinted but i guess it would be cool to have them darker.

    let me get this straight, is a higher percentage brighter and lower percentage darker? i thought it was the other way for some reason

    thats correct my friend


    example: 20%=20% of light gets in. 5%=5% of light gets in.
