    I had 3% on all the sides of my last car and 35% on the windshield... It didn't take me long to get a ticket. They have gotten VERY strict here in AR. When I got the current escalade, I had my tint shop "match" the 2 fronts to the rear, I believe it was 15% they applied. Then I had them do 40% on the windshield. It's very light but just enough to take the glare off of things in the day and headlights at night. I've tinted the windshield on the last 4 or 5 vehicles I've had and will never be without it again.

    The State Troopers in NC (at least in my area) care the guns to check and will get anyone that has a tint that is to restrictive. I live in an area close to two military bases, so I think it is the fact they know they can find some tickets.

    Then again, I got pulled twice on the way to work for an expired tag by state troopers and got a ticket for the first and obviously no ticket the second time. It was legitimate as I thought my transfer also extended the renewal time...ooopps. Just got it renewed and it was dropped.

It has absolutely transformed the look of my ride and I get a ton of accolades. Cops have given me the eye when I drive by, but they have never pulled me over for it.
    I know this is an old thread.... but the above truck looks AWESOME! I just did my EXT with 15% over all 5 windows, and kinda wish I went a bit darker. I was trying to match what my old truck had (previous owner did it) and I thought for sure it was 15 over factory tint, but now I believe it was 5% over factory... I just hate to re-pay for another expensive tint job and suspect it would look GREAT to anyone else, but I just want it darker! I will try to post pics soon. FWIW, I used Pinnacle 15 and its a quality tint which isnt hard to see out of whatsoever. Perhaps I need to see if the tinted will hook me up with a re-do!!!-nate

    I put 15% over factory which brought it to 4% and put 5% on the front 2 windows which read 4% on the meter so all the way around I have 4% and it looks great!

    That's 20% wincos tint all around and 60 on the windshield. It really blocks the heat better than the ceramic tint I had on my Porsche
