    i have very light tint on it now, i think its factory. Ive been procrastinating to get it tinted but a guy quoted me 250 bucks to take it all off, and tint the front, two side windows, a strip across the front and the T tops, all 5%.

    Where did you go? I've been thinking about tinted windows on my SS for a while now but I'm afraid to go just "anywhere"...

    Limo tint does look good. Illegal tint is a big worry amongst cops, just wait til someone wants to blast you from the cover of that nice tint

    Just got my tint done!! 5 % all around looks great. Worried about cops though. Especially since the windows barely go down.

    Can anyone post pics of their cars if they have the 4-5" visor strip on the windshield and then whatever on the sides & hatch? This whole tinting law thing is annoying. The law says one thing & everyone else does somethin' else. Spoke to a Sheriff the other day and he seemed pretty adamant that you'll get pulled over for having your windshield done anything more then the visor strip, but to me it would seem like a car would look stupid to not have all the windows done....he also then told me I should just do "5% on the visor then 20% all around, 'cause that's what his patrol car was"...I was like uhhhh.....

    lol, I def. don't want problems. My car already stands out with all the beaters in this town..and the talk with the cop was by chance. He happened to be serving papers to my neighbor while I was leaving to go to the gym! I'll go legal just so long as it doesn't look retarded!

    The place where it is bubbling will be a problem for ANY tint.
    I had mine covered with black vinyl before tint put on. Problem gone.

    I went 20% sides and 5% back. Nothing on the windshield.

    I have 5% all around on my DD and will NEVER do that again. Night driving isn't terrible, but I still find myself leaning forward to look out the windshield around corners.
    Only one ticket for it.....out of state. I think on black you can get away with darker windows....
