What percent do you all have? I had 20% on my mustang and loved it. Who has 5% and do you like it? Opinions please.

For those who can't have tint in your state, I am sorry. Please don't tell me your local laws...

I had 5% all around, and I liked it. hard to see at night though but you can just put your window down. I had to take the front pair off for a ticket though :(

My local shop said it is normally $239, but they would do it for $200. What is everyone else paying?

I have 15% to match the stock factory tint, it's pretty close, slightly lighter.

Factory is 20%. But different tinters have different darkness levels to each of their %'s. Just take to a pro and have him match it. The guy that did my fronts matched it pretty close to perfect and used 20%.

Same here. Just pay for the front two, the others are all pretty dark. I have had 5% on my cars before, and man it's a B#^@tch to see out of. It would suck to run someone over bc you couldn't see them:eek:

I paid $80.00 for the front 2 windows to match the rest of the truck.

You may want to consider 15% on the back windows it will match up with 5% in the front 15% over stock tint basically makes it 5% and it is DARK like you can hardly see. I would never put 5% over the back windows you will not be able to see at all trust me.

I placed 15% on the front two windows which matches up perfectly with the rest of the windows. I am thinking about tinting my windshield to some extent because too much light is coming through the front making my tint look a lot lighter than it is. I want my Escalade to have the black window look with the White Diamond paint. It will look sweet when I'm done with it.

Thanks.

Not really where I live. I am down in South Florida and there are so many cars and trucks with tinted windows that the cops would have a field day so I guess they decided to go against pulling people over for the tints. It is one of those laws where you would have to do something illegal like speed and then when they pull you over, they will say something about your tint, but they won't pull you over just for your tint.

Thanks.

I've been pulled over just up the street from my house. They gave me a warning and let me go, I've caught a few other officers in violation of wreckless eyeballing at a few intersections. For the most part I've only been pulled over once.

I've been pulled over a few times for my tint on my front windows. In fact, I got pulled over in front of my house a few months ago. The guy asked me where i lived as he pulled me over when I was coming down the street to my driveway. I told him "You just pulled me over in front of my freakin' house!" I still haven't got that ticket signed off and had an extension through court till March 13 to get it signed off. I'll probably forget, again...
