    I got 35% from when my car was in MA and I'm only paying 4200 to have the car stripped and retinted in 20%. I live in TX and the only time I have a problem with the 20%, mine came out at 14% when it was inspected so I just stripped it got the inspection and $40 to get it redone. I have been pulled over speeding and had the windows up and no cops ever said anything about my tint. I had a Explorer when I lived in FL with 5% all over and 1/3 of the winsheild, I only got hassled by cops at toll booths radaring and that was always because the could see winsheild tinted way to far down. 20% should be fine

    thats sounds about right..$130 for me..but if i ever get mine retinted i think i would just take off the tint myself before i took it in...i've heard that a razor and windex are great for removing tint!! Just a thot that might save you the cost of a re-tint..lol

    I love your car bro. Nice. Polished lips on the rims would really get it too.

    Mine 35% which is MO law. I'd like to get darker but, don't need to give the law any excuses to pull me over and what not.

    What ever tint you decided to go with, vacum the car (including the fuzzies on the windows) right before having it installed. I used to work at a plant that had a lot of wood fiber in the parking lot. When I had my truck windows tinted the static from the tint attracted the fibers. So now I have little bubbles in the edge of the tint.

    Does anyone have the "pimp stripe" across the front window? I see this on imports and trucks alot around here. But the windshield is so raked i was wondering if it would just completly kill your vision?

    the term they use around here is a brow. . . im not sure what the legal size is, i wanna say 6" or 8", but imo it doesn't hurt your vision much at all. in fact, its very helpful on sunny days.
