    I'll post pictures of the difference once I get it back tomorrow.
    The windshield isn't legal anywhere. I'm still getting mine done. Also I doubt a lighter tint on the windshield would cause more attention than 5% all around. Is that legal where you live?

    Re: Window Tint - what do you have?

    I'm in Ontario Canada and I believe the Law is written weird they don't state a percent, it actually just says the window can't be covered by any objects or film. The officers must be able to see the persons in the vehicle.

    I've talked to a few Tint places and they have all said 20% is what they consider to be legal but it could be up to the officers desecration.

    I believe I had 5% on my previous truck (2007 Escalade) and I got pulled over all the time but never for my tint, it was always for "checking papers" and or "suspicious vehicle". Infact I've had cops just walk up to me to check my papers while I was parked in front of a store before, but that a different story for another day

    Also have 5% on front windows and 15% over factory rear. Looks same with the previous picture. Windshield not tinted at all.
    But sometimes I need to open the front windows when parking at night.

    Re: Window Tint - what do you have?

    so had to get my front (driver/passenger) tinted ripped out to pass inspection here in md. i got my tags and i want to put it back on and i don' t care what the limit here is.

    i had to clean the residue off and the remnants of the flim. i wasn't sure if it was aftermarket or not.

    so my question...is the factory a film or is the glass smoked? i'm asking because i want to know if i need to remove the film from the rear windows before i get the car tinted again.

    Not certain but I don't think the fronts are completely clear

    Re: Window Tint - what do you have?

    Instead of starting a brand new thread on tinting, I'm piling on here...hope that's okay.

    Is there a way to fix small holes in the tint? I'm not sure how it happened but there's about an 1/8" round hole in the tint on the driver's side and I'd hate to pay for the whole thing to be removed and replaced if it can be repaired.

    Thanks

    David

    I know there are companies out there that make windshield tint but I was wondering if anyone had ever had theirs done to have an opinion? Likes, dislikes, get this brand but not this one... Thanks in advance!

    Re: Window Tint - what do you have?

    I've always been told that you would have to replace the entire window film if you put a hole in it, might be better to call a few tint shops to see what they say...
