    If you have tint laws near you I would keep it legal. No reason to get a ticket over tint if you can help it.

    Dam man ! I must say that looks sexy as hell but that looks like the paint shoppe forgot to mask the windows and painted them black !!! All jokes aside it's a little dark for my taste from the exterior. How is it from inside? any issues seeing out at night?

    i thought about tinting too, but then i figured that when i drive my car the windows are down and ttops off, so its pointless.

    I have always had 5% on my cars side windows and back window, my TA I had 35% on the front windshield along with 5% all around and that was dark inside. Here is a shot of my vette with 5%...

    Ended up choosing 22%. Looked great on a TL parked out front but should have known the tl has so much window area it looks lighter inside. I'm not too happy its pretty black. from most angles it looks like 5% which bothers me. Going to call him now to see if he can peel it off and go 35% right now. akjsfadsjlfadsjljfas;ljf

    Well its growing on me already. Not that i dont like 5% or dark tint. I just dont like how it hides the 'b' pillar completely giving the car a total wedge look. I really liked the b pillar standing out. I might look into having it painted white with the roof. First 96 ss I ever saw was white/white b pillar/roof and it looked stunning.
