    Re: Window tinting percent

    ok, with that link to that website, exactly how dark is "dark" and "medium" according to them?

    I live in NY, and for the back window, and back sides (Coupe) I choose "dark" and for the front sides I choose "medium" I am not geting it now, but in the Spring I will be....

    ...... my father has a '99 GTP, and he has like the lightest tint on it, and when i said I want to tint the windows ont he DeVille, he is like, oh nonononono you have to get the lightest or you'll be pulled over all the time blah blah, I am like, it's an old school Caddy, and mediumish will not be bad, he is like don't say i didn't warn ya...... I want like 30-35% but what is the medium and dark on that site?

    Also for NY is says the limit is 70% for front sides, and any for back..... isn't 70% alot lighter then 35 (let's 70% of light thru) so I don't understand that...

    Yes. It's a measure of how much light goes through. 10% means 10% of the original light makes it. 70% means that much light. Thus, lower = darker.

    Re: Window tinting percent

    Ive got 15-20 percent on my Deville, and never had any trouble with it. It keeps the car cool in the summer and looks dark from the outside, but is fine when driving at night.

    One note of caution: I got pulled over once and the cop mentioned it was slightly illegal in NY but didnt bust me for it

    Re: Window tinting percent

    I got 12, 13 or 15% on mine all the way around and been told several times by state troopers, HPD and UHD cops to get it redone. THey all can KISS MY PUERTORICAN ASS. They check it with this machine that slides down on the window and tells the percentage. I've gotten three tickets at $75-80 each. I am not proud of this by any means but im getting at the fact you have to watch yourselves. They cant stand to see a 22 year old with a nice car. Well i actually bought it in OCT. of 2002, so i was about 20. Its got vouges and a classic grille on the front but no rims and the system can really only be heard in the inside. I live in the GREAT STATE OF TEXAS. In Houston to be exact and the cops down here are a BITCH!!!! So watch out if you ever come my way.
