    It cost 300 for just the windshield. It's done in wincos 60% and honestly from the inside I can barely tell its tinted. And actually looks clearer than stock, I don't know if its Bc the wincos takes away glare or is it Bc they cleaned my windshield before they did it. But it's very clear. If you ever seen wincos it has a slight blue tint to it, even at the 20% and that's what makes it different. It actually blocks ir light which causes heat.

    What are your plans after the brake tag expires?
    My brake tag is on a thick zag iPad screen protector and can be easily peeled off as to not mess up the tint. There's a few places around town that will hand you a brake tag. Might cost a little extra but definitely can get it. If you go any darker than 60 than you have to cut your tint and apply the tag against the window which will make it a pain to cleanly re do a brake tag. Also my sister has 15% all around her cts with 35% on the window and her car is no where nearly as cool as mine on the inside.

    My wrangler has 20% front and back. 35% windshield. I went lighter on the escalade because my wife drives it as well.

    Thank you. Sent you a pm.

    Man, seeing all these dark windshields, I just brought my car back to get it tinted in a darker wincos tint. 40% looking forward to see how it comes out tonight. Said it'll take most of the day bc they have to strip my 60% off

    I never had a problem with my Benz I had before maybe bc it was black and the cops didn't notice, But with the escalade being white maybe the black tints stick out more. The first time was a local cop (Wellesley) and the last time it was a statey.

    Re: Front windshield tint

    It's illegal here too, but it's so darn hot in New Orleans.... And i drive my car mostly during morning rush time, and 10pm at night to get home (work 14 hour days) so not too worried, but when I'm off, if I have to go anywhere, I'll drive like normal, but maybe roll down the windows to let more light in so the windshield doesn't look so dark if I'm riding near a police officer.
