    The look from the inside is impeccable. I had this guy, Phil, who runs Top of the Line, do my last escalade. The look from the inside is equivalent in the front seats and the back seat. There may be a slight (VERY VERY VERY SLIGHT) change in color, like a ilttle lighter in the front (due to that huge windshield bringing in light, since its closer to the front windshields) than in the back. From the outside, there is no change. If you want everythign to be perfect do what I am about to do:


    Get the front windshield tinted 50%! It looks RETARDED hot on Escalades

    It says your located in PA. If your close to the Jersey border, i HIGHLY suggest u go to Top of the Line tinting. I mean, I drive 1 hr to get there because it is simply the best. Where are you located?

    i'm in south central pa.....like right smack in the middle. about 3 hours or so from philly and about 15 min. from the maryland border. probably a little too far to get tint.

    Wow your escalade is lookin real clean. Nice tint job and Giovanna wheels. You really have good taste when it comes to Escalades. Where in NJ is that shop located at. The tints on my Escalade don't look to nice as quality wise. I'll probably get mine redone. Keep up the good work on your Caddy truck

    Well I stopped to see Phil at Top Of The Line Tint and he did a beautiful job. The guy is real cool and I would recommend his shop to anyone. Now my windows are all the same around.

    Mine is 20%, you have a choice, they can go a little darker than the back windows or a little lighter (this is due to the fact that the aftermarket tint is a film and the factory is in the glass, I went slightly lighter, with the shade on the sunroof closed the windows are the same color, if tough to see the difference, with the sunroof open you can see it's slightly lighter. The film is made by LLumar

    Re: Just tinted out my escalade

    i want to go a little lighter in the front. i don't want it to be too dark and draw attention. i had 35% on the front windows of my eclipse and 20% on the back. i liked it like that. at night it was difficult to see in, but it wasn't so dark that it drew attention from any police.
