    I like %35 myself. %20 is ok too but any darker than that looks ghetto imo.

    On Dragonbird 1 (99 T/A) I went TN legal which is 35% It looked really good and I really liked it at night cause it helped to cut down on the glare from those who have a bad habit of tailgating me, lol. As far as what Dragonbird 2 ('01 T/A) has, I have no clue, but I can tell the tint is darker than DB 1's was, which was very strange considering it was a Virginia car and as far as I know you're not allowed to tint your windows at all in VA. Sometimes being able to see backing up at night is a problem, but I just walk around the car so I know my distance from everything, B4 getting in to back up But like some of the others on here are saying, if you can get a doctors statement, then go as dark as you want

    i went with 20 all around and im very pleased with it...also the quality of the tint plays a factor too. the cheap stuff will not hold up as well as a quality film

    In NY if u have anything lower then the factory 85% tint on the front two windows you will get pulled over and a ticket i had a grand am before the T/A that had 10% on it i think i got 5 tickets in like 5 years with the car..when the cops have 2 get there quarter in at the end of the month they will nail you for all the little stuff...there was a cop that used to park his car right at the stop sign before entering my college he would stadnd in the middle of the street and just point at 4 cars in a row pulled us all over for any kind of tint on the windows its pathetic!

    thats terrible, i live in NY as well and i never have gotten pulled over for tint itself....actually tint has saved me twice from getting speeding tickets. I got nailed for 49 in a 35 and 68 in a 55 and the officers opted to give me tint tickets both times rather than speeding.

    Sometimes, it does work in your favor to have the cops give you an option on which ticket to get. I've had things like that before, such as, "Do you want a ticket for reckless driving, speeding, or no taillights?" I said, I'll take the no taillights sir (fuse had blown), and he said, "good choice."

    no matter what the price difference, a tint ticket isn't going to affect a person's insurance rates.
