10% all the way around, basically limo tint. It looks incredible with the Black Diamond paint.

Really? Do dealers need to have BOTH a plate frame and dumbass stickerz? Just do a frame and leave the beautiful cars alone...

Yeah I agree, first mod was to remove the dealer crap ASAP.

You're going to vinyl it, not paint and clearcoat?

They actually use the vinyl on the rears. They did my Z (rears, side markers, reverse, and headlights. 2 hrs 45k miles and DD still looked as good as the first time they did it. So I'll do the same again.

I didn't even leave the showroom until they removed that shit. They did manage to take it off without scratching the paint, so A+ to them though.

and yet, there are only 3 pictures.. :suspect:

I demand more for the sake of humanity, and also because I have the same car and want to do the same. . .

Looks really nice. That is dark looking 10%. Looks more like 5% (Limo Tint) but you DO have a black car and with a dark interior it always looks darker than it really is. They did a good job. I use to be an car audio installer and we did tint where I worked and we saw sooooo many BAD tint jobs....

I also fully agree on the Dealer stickers. When I picked up my car my Salesman knew not to put them on........ That is ALWAYS the first mod to any car I get. They don't pay me to advertise..........

I was mistaken it is 5% (limo) my tinter is a great guy he has done several of my cars as well as a bunch of my friends cars. And the best thing is that he comes to your home, he did the caddy right in my garage. And Im also with you on the dealer sticker crap, anytime I get a car as soon as I get home out comes the hair dryer and removal takes place.
