    70 % light let through, im sure. You could go straight limo in the back, and t-tops, then do legal in the front, or just roll down the windows next time, unless its the town cop(brush is kinda small). But you have to send in the fix it ticket. And if that cop remembers you, he will give you a ticket next time.

    I honestly didn't know they made 70% tint. Is it possible you misunderstood him? Like it should let 70% of light through.

    Yeah he must've had his thinking reversed, 70% of light blocked rather than 70% of light allowed... Of course, you couldn't explain that to him...

    I always had an idea when you get pulled over put ur windows down and have a switch that kills the power to the windows so the cant go back up, than you can't show them the tint of the window.

    It was kinda dark out so it really looked dark. I think ima just roll with windows down. I kinda pissed him off by say are you jealous you dont have a car like this.

    Yeah, that's not good. I can't stand cops either, but you can't mess with them.

    And to schmalgar, yeah, you will just talk yourself into another ticket.

    Push like you touched him? If so how did the pavement taste and or how did the taser feel?

    Edit: You guys do realize why cops don't like dark tint right?

    cops say the front tint is illegal for "safety".. when they pull some over they want to see what the hell is the driver doing,, so that means cops are scared,,
