Re: window tint

I hate uneven tint. My Lude has no tint. My truck has 5% on the fronts and 5% over the stock tint on the back. I love it. The only inconvenience is backing up, I have to drop my windows but that never bothered me. I say go all out or nothing but whatever you do get the whole car even. 15% is ok, I had that on my old civic. Thats usually the darkest you can go and have a lifetime warranty against fading. I think Im leaving my Lude tintless for now. I hate it but Im always getting harassed by the po po in my truck for it. Its nice being able to drive around without living in fear for a change lol.

Re: window tint

In MI, you can have anything you want, but the front windows have to be 4 in from the top. But i had 5 all over on my old car, and never got harrased.

hes talking about the drop on the top of the windshield I think. 20% is good for a light tint. Everyone will still be able to see you though but it looks ok. 30% really isnt even worth doing its so light.

Re: window tint

I have a guy but not even he will pass me with tint. I ripped my tint off last year and went like 6 mos without it and retinted again after inspection. Even if you have a hook up they prob wont pass you for anything visually wrong with your car. They got DMV guys like spying on some of these places to see what leaves with inspection stickers and ****.

Definitely post pics when you do it! I'm thinking about hitting my car with 20% all around when i go home for winter break, but i wanna see how it looks first. you would be a perfect guinnea pig for me since you have a silver 5gen.

and yes, i agree...

Re: window tint

aghhh!!!! you lucky bastards! i want a 5th gen too. and silver looks so clean. But anyways, i have yet to be inspected with my tint and im happy for it. my plan tho is if i get pulled over, i quickly roll down the windows, and detach the window fuse. that way when they try to catch me riding dirty and press the window button, im like "shoot ms. officer that goes wee oo wee ooo wee, my windows don't work"

Re: window tint

I will say its about what you can afford, just saying this as the legal tint here in VA, is back 35% and fronts 70%. Not very much. So with that said I would check with the local law and see what the legal tint is and go by that or you could have a bunch of tickets. Or you could ride around with your windows down but I wouldn't recommend that as its fairly cold this time of year in some parts.
