    Black or mirror tint for my '93 fleetwood?

    I have a '93 fleetwood brougham and it white with a black interior,it has the white vinyl roof and the chrome trim on the bottom half of the car. So my question is to those here who have tinted the window on thair caddys what type of tint do you think looks best on a white caddy black or mirror? Do you guys think that mirror tint looks ghetto? would you say black tint looks more classy on a white cadillac? Also how dark should I go? I want it as dark as possible I live in florida if this helps at all.lastly could you guys maybe post pics of your caddy so I can see how it looks thanks.

    ive got 5-metal black tint on my car, i believe the front is 28% and back is 18%, reflective tint looks cheap and cheesy to me.

    Are you gonna do it yourself or have it done? I did mine myself with some static cling stuff. There was no glue so I can just peel it off if I ever want to. If you know how to do it, you don't have any of those nasty air bubbles. Stay away from anything that looks purple from the inside.

    Here is a picture of when I had the white '96 and my black '96 Fleetwood. I sold the white one last year.

    10% smoke tints on both:



    2015 Audi Q7 3.0T S-line - my DD
    2013 BMW Alpina B7 - wife's DD
    2002 Pontiac Trans AM WS6 Convertible Collectors Edition
    1992 Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe

    I love being blinded by people with mirror tint.

    I don't know what state you line in, but, I bet it you can't have any mirror tint.

    Nothing screams "STOP ME" like mirror tint.

    You won't last a month without getting stopped.

    Dark tint is bad enough...

    Mostly overlooked around here....(although I did just get stopped for mine the other day. And my Mom was in the car too!!)

    Go with the smoke...

    Re: Black or mirror tint for my '93 fleetwood?

    I just removed my mirror tint after 8 yrs because I just got bored of it. I only got stopped once for having it. Tint It Is in Philly did a great job. Never had a spec of bubbling! Anyway, If you mirror tint your windows, you'll have to realize that the factory glass is green so on overcast days the windows will look green. On sunny days it looked pretty good. That is the one thing That the tint guy never told me. Hopefully this will help you out!
