    I want to have the windows tinted and the window trim wrapped with vinyl. The Plastidip works well but I'm not 100% happy with the window trim. I'm just worried about passing inspection with the tint. No one can seem to tell me how much is legal in PA. Even my brother who is a cop said the officer needs to see in from 3' away. That leaves a lot of room for interpretation. I guess I'll speak with the guys at my inspection station.
    Murdered out.....?..... I still see red reflectors and tails on the back, nobody mentioned that? Black'm out man, car looks sweet.

    PS

    In PA an inspection station doesnt have the rights to fail you for window tint. Trust me been there done that. The only thing they CAN do is advise you "thats not legal" but they cant fail you for it...... the statute for it is so vague that not even a cop "really knows" the law. Its up to an officers discresion to say whether its too dark or not.
    Hope this may help and not confuse you HAHA.

    I tinted my CTS the day after I bought it %20, and Im going to get my wifes car tinted tomorrow at %35.
    As soon as I get a chance to go to the eye doctor I will have my paper signed so there are no discrepancies over it. Im a welder so I get flash burn alot, therefore I can be blind to light for hours at a time after work.
    In the mean time the only time I drive my car is when my 11 month old son is with me, and tint makes life much easier for him to go to sleep. Whether or not a cop would have compassion and understand that I dont know, so I play it safe and dont do anything stupid when I drive .

    Like paint. Do a search on Plasti Dip. There is a video on it and is very easy to use. I used it on several things. Cecil........

    Gorgeous! I have ordered more Plasti-dip as I am going to redo the chrome. The two grills came out pretty good. Since you can remove Plasti-dip so easily, it allows for "mulligans." I am no golfer but I think that's the right word, isn't it?

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    In michigan tint is 35% or more (More % that is) on the front door windows. Now, Talking to a few local and state cops I know this is very subjective. State cops HATE tint. Local cops are way more forgiving. But with that said they all said the type of car that is tinted makes a difference. A V didnt bother any of them as long as you are not driving excessive speeds or racing. If the car that is tinted might be more often driven by a higher risk group (youth), its going to get a lot more attention from the popo. Very subjective.

    To knowledge, Michigan does not allow tint on the front windshield and both front side windows unless it is just a small strip at the top. This was 3 years ago for my g8 so they may of changed it since then but it is unlikely.

    Must be nice. Im PA were stuck with %70..... who the f*ck tints windows at %70 !?

    PA is very grey on their tint laws, its basically up to the officers disgresion.

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    I stand corrected, no tint on front door glass or windshield except 4" strip on top. However, conversations with cops (local and state) still stands true. Depends what you drive and very subjective.

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    Screw it. I'm going with 20%. I'm not worried about getting pulled over. There are not many cops where I live and my brother is a lieutenant in a neighboring town and while I have been pulled over, I have never gotten a ticket. I was more concerned about passing inspection but the pace where I get my car inspected told me as long as the windshield and lights are not tinted, they will pass it.

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    Yea, 20% is nice. Thats what I have on mine, and thats what was on my last car.

    The only time Ive got pulled over and they said something about my tint was when I was younger and they still made 2 1/2%..... THAT was dark!

    As long as you are not acting like a criminal or a kid trying to hide a 6 pack and some weed you will be good. IF you get pulled over for whatever, do the cops a favor and drop your driver and passenger windows so that he can see what you are doing. They just get nervous if they can't see you. Also, if you have the ultraview your fronts will look lighter than a non roof car. I went 20% rear and back window and 35% fronts and they are PLENTY dark. Almost wish I went 50% on front doors.

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    larry hit the nail on the head. always drop all your windows when you get pulled over, the cops will appreciate your obedient servitude and act less like a dick. plus the tinted windows are now off his radar because they aren't in his line of sight, works every time, and i've had 20% on all my cars for two decades and only once got a ticket because i failed to put down the passenger side windows.
