    I like darker most of the time. But I think that looks better with your color than a darker tint would.

    I agree.. I think a darker tint would make it look fake/toyish for lack of a better word. It ended up being dark/light enough to almost look like it could come from the factory like this. hope that makes sense?

    With this tint, at least when people give you thumbs up, they can see you waving back!! I think it's perfect, touch of class, and not so 'gangsta'. Good choice~!

    Mine was moderately tinted on the doors but not the hatch when I bought it. Wasn't sure about that at first. But it seems to balance out ok. With the t-tops and inserts in place, and the windows rolled up, the car darkens enough that the hatch glass pretty much looks as dark as the door windows, so that car looks ok. And when the tops are out and the windows are down, I prefer the clear glass look anyway. So I am going to leave it this way.

    Limo all around, including T Tops and half of front windshield.

    Dark as hell, totally illegal. But it looks great lol

    If you have bad vision the dark tint is not the greatest at night. But it does keep the heat out during the summer.

    I have my truck tinted the same way that's my daily driver.

    It all depends were you live, your town/city etc. Knock on wood, I have never been harassed. Been driving it that way since 2002 on the bird.

    When I bought the car new it had factory tent of 35% all around (none in front) I had the tent taken off cost $50 for the sides and $100 for the rear I then went 20% for the rear which is legal in NE. but I had a double tent done to the sides (RED fade to BLACK I has SILVER to back it up becuse I thought the red looked pink when light passed through it) This made my tent illegal at 2.5% Cost me $100 per side and back. I have been pulled over 3 times for my tent and got tickets every time costing $67 each time they ran a meter over the window which shoots a light beam and it registers what % of light passes through. They said mine reads 2.3% they used a credit card meter in the back and that was ok. In NE the officer has the option to give you a razer to remove the thent right there plus the ticket but that has not happen to me yet

    I have one with and one without. Both have a dark interior and it gets very hot, even in the frozen wasteland. The one with, came that way. I am going to try putting the tint on my caddy myself. It seems like a good idea for security, heat, protecting the interior, and it just plain looks good. The only negs I can think of would be difficulty seeing at night and picky police.

    I had mine professionally done at 25%. I get pulled over every now and then by cops with nothing better to do since my tint is illegal. Sorry but I like having privacy in my own car. It keeps my car like 10 degrees cooler in the summer and a must if you have leather like me.

    When I got my C5 it had a light tint on the rear. I used a fabric steamer and lots of time to get it off. Defogger is fine. remove the glue with the steamer and microfiber. follow with glass gleaner. I have 20% rear and 35% front on the Vette. The 20% is not legal in Washington but who cares. My truck has factory privacy glass so I added 39% to the fronts. The Sky is 35% all the way. All done by pros. Looks great and the truck is an 03 and its been there since it was new. Looks like new.
