Cool I have an appoint. for Saturday to get mine done as well. What % are you getting? I'm getting 35% as ALL tint in Ohio is illegal unless the rear windows are pre-tinted from the manufacture (e.g., SUV) or you have a medical exemption. Usually law officials don't hassle people over tinted windows, but sometimes the Ohio State Patrol does these sweeps.

Not true. Ohio allows Rear windows as dark as you want but only up to 50% tint on fronts.

My bad I may be confused as I had my last ride tinted in New York. Anyway it's cool I'll gladly sign the waiver in the morning and have the windows tinted with the 35% film.

35% is always a safe bet. Even in states that dont allow any front side window tints like illinois. Anything past 20% is asking to get rolled

I've always had 5% all the way around on all my vehicles, and after 6 years, I finally got pulled over for the first time for it just a couple weeks ago. :(

Yea i hear ya' - its really strange how the difference is between 20% and 35% at night. At the 35% you can barely tell you have tints and at 20% i have to roll down the windows to park

As promised here are some pics of the tint I got today. Once again I'm in Ohio and I have 35% film on all of my rides as the law officals "usually" don't hound you over 35% tint.

Keep in mind that the factory installed windows already have a slight green tint to them. So 20% film on the windows will register in the teens and 35% is actually closer to 30%.

Yeah, which one of you guys is going to start the partial dechroming?
i saw my first V2 today in Charleston, SC and about half of it needs to be changed to black.

As much as I despise chrome, I would think leaving some of those accents on the car would look better than blacking everything out. The trim around the windows definitely needs to go, as does the trim on the trunk...but I think the fender vent and the edges of the front grilles should stay (but the mesh part of the grille could definitely stand to be blacked out).

I figure some aftermarket shop will come out with black chrome for the V2 along with a bunch of other accessories.

I went by a custom wheel shop today just to see them drool over the car and see if the had any custom wheels available for the beast. It appears a few of the custom wheels that fit the Vette will fit the V2. Other than that there are some very expensive forged three-piece wheels, which may fit. With the V2 having 5 lugs and the breaks not sticking out too far there should be a nice selection of custom wheels coming out once the wheel makers catch up.

here are a couple quickies with the phone camera--this is 20 tint all the way around. By the way--I can't say I ever had a car get this much attention before. Not sure if thats such a good thing. Also--this may sound so cliche--but of all the cars I have had or known--this one looks sooo much better in person than in pics.

That looks great. I agree, pictures don't do it justice. I find myself lusting after my own car. It's a blast.

I agree as well, pics don't do it justice. I walk by mine in the garage every morning getting into the winter beater and am sad I only got to drive it a few times before the snow hit here.

Indeed the car looks even better in person. While out and about I hear comments such as ďThatís a nice looking Cadillac, Iíve never seen one like that beforeĒ or I hear ďItís that the new CTS-V?Ē The car is an eye catcher. Iíve even had people pull up next to me while Iím driving down the street and say how much they like the look of the car.
