    Re: Window tinting percent

    I've got 20 percent on my car.. You can still see through during the day, but at night it's pretty difficult.. Any lighter than this, Ithink it's kind of a waste. I never get pulled over for it. It's not very dark...

    I have 30% on my Escalade, it's slightly lighter than the rear factory windows, but any darker was just too dark for me.

    Re: Window tinting percent

    I agree. I have 20% (3M carbon black), on my Fleetwood and on a dark night it's a little too dark. During the day though I really like it. Made the car look killer too! Black, black, black. D.

    is there a link where we can find the laws of specific states on window tint and what your're allowed to have?

    I want to get mirror tint because my new car is silver.

    Re: Window tinting percent

    Hi everyone, got my car back about a week ago. Went with 35% Llumar window film. (charcoal grey, 3 year warranty) The lady who runs the tinting shop had the exact same year and color seville as me and steered me away from the 20%. When it is parked in the garage or it is getting dark out, the windows look pretty dark. When it is outside during the day it is perfect. Here in wi, it is ok to have 35% on the back window, back sides but the fronts should be no more than 50%, so I am only too dark on the front sides. Hopefully I will have no problems from this. It is very clear from the inside looking out. I will try to get some pictures up soon, really adds a lot to the look of this car I think. Next up, 18" chrome wheels, any suggestions? Jim

    I'm either 15, or 10 all around. It's not exactly legal. Admittedly tough to see out the sides at night, but that's fine. During day or noight, it's tough to see in. Which is how I like it.

    Re: Window tinting percent

    I've got 27 all around on mine. It's a little too light for my taste, but it's probably the bare minumum for good visibility all around. I got metallic tint, as well, so it's impossible to see in during the day (a little bit of reflection), and at night it's real hard.

    At some point I'd like to get 15-20.

    new jersey windshield tinting law states that 20% of the FRONT WINDSHIELD MAY BE TINTED. mirror tint is SPECIFICALLY forbidden in new jersey as well. in this case the "year" column on this page must be when the laws were referenced.

    rockin 10% limo front to back. I LOVE IT. if you're that afraid to drive with a little reduced visibility, then why do you even take your cars out at night?

    to be fair, i live in the suburbs, and my business does business with most of the local town's law enforcement and public works departments, so they know my car. limo's not a good idea if you travel or live near urban areas. besides not being able to see out, NOBODY's seein in. and it could get ya shot!
