5% in the back windows and 20% in the front windows...i love that combo..makes the rear look pitch black *which is legal* and have the front windows dark but NOT as dark as the back windows..not supposed to tint front windows..but o well everyone does it..its illegal to tint your front windows here in california but i know the laws are different in other states..

The dark body color tint looks good on dark colored cars (Ive seen gold/gold and ) Ive got dark blue on my back sides and looks sweet. And if the cops are around and its illegal just roll down the windows

I had two layers of 5 percent on my front windows and the coppers made me scrape it.

Guess I need to get that put back on this spring

Why would you ever want it that dark?! Can you even see out it at night?

I've never had any problem seeing out any tint, no matter how dark it is.

I have 5 percent on the back of my truck, and 35 percent up front and I have no trouble seeing.

- Thanks, I put alot of work into her, but its worth it for the compliments.

As for the cops, I got pulled over once and he told me to take it off. - I never did since I just got it installed that week.
(He even asked me to roll up my windows to check them, but he let me go w/o a ticket.)
As long as your "Not some punk kid giving him a hard time" they usually let you off.

well during the day with my limo tint ...*%5*..i can see fine..and limo tint on the rear 3 windows is legal anywhere i believe...

as for driving at night...its alright...not as dark as you think..but when i back out of my friends driveway sometimes at night...its downhill..so i cant see crap...i have to put my window down and have my LED underbody system to see how close to the curb i am...pretty sad..lets jus say when its dark out and theres no light...its a challenge..possible but a challenge..

plus we all know why "I" need limo tint in the backseat...you know wha im sayin?..yah knaw wha iem sayin bro?...YOU KNOW WHAT IM SAYIN?!..*cough*

sorry about that i just downed 2 of those no fear energy drinks

lol it's ok but yes i do know what your saying. comes in handy. besides the point so the back 3 can be darker than night but the side windows and front are allowed what percentage? you can only do the top part of your windshield right? i saw this camaro with tint so dark you couldnt even see in from the front. man that would be sweet if it were legal.

well i jus checked the tint laws for indiana...man this sucks

the most you could do *legally* is 30% in the front windows which is better than california..cali is 75%..but the back 3 windows in CA can be as dark as night..but in indiana the law says only 30% all around..man that sucks..

for more info on tint laws jus search

ohh yea and in indiana a certificate is required for gettin your windows tinted..i guess you receive that after tintin your windows to let the cop thats pullin you over where you got it put in..so good luck tryin to find a place that will do illegal tint..

i just went to the local muffler/tint/audio shop thats owned by hispanics such as myself..hehe..put in my high flow cats..no receipt im on my own..tinted my front windows 20% when it should be 70%...no receipt..in CA you dont need a certificate so i guess thats why they were cool with 20% up front and %5 in the back windows..

30% is not really all that bad. It is not really really dark but not bad.
This is my old car. It had 35% on the sides and 20% on the back

Go to the eye doctor and ask for a light sensitivity test and then they might write you one.
