    Pick up my V yesterday! 20%Tint today!!!!

    Pound owner of Silver STS V Black interior. All stock 58000 miles. Still had the onstar and a pink sticker on the rear small windows. Those are getting taken off and tinted 20% all around today. It will look sooooooo much better. How does anyone drive without tint.

    Yeah ny sucks with the law. 70% is the limit on the sides. Back is unlimited I believe. Here in nc it's 35%. I figured ill just do the 35 and deal with it when I move back. But I fly back a lot. As a matter of fact I'm at RDU waiting for a flight back as we speak. And I started noticing that a lot of cars have illegal tints in ny. Like 50 and below. So I'm not worried. And worst case I have a PBA card. Nice.

    So where did you get the tint. Must've been somewhat difficult to find a place that would put on an illegal tint.

    Actually don't answer that I guess.

    Same here in Illinois. Although that never has stopped me. Mine was done when I got the car, but I would guess it's in the 30% - 20% range.

    They do tints all over and everyone tells you that it's illegal. I believe 75 is the legal limit for the two front windows and the rear one. The shop told me that it's 90 and they don't have tint like that. If NYPD needs a reason to stop you that's one but they don't tend to stop people for tint UNLESS you drive in a bad neighborhood (high crime drug trafficking areas).

    And I got my badge to help me. Nice

    Ok, I just have to say this... It's "Tint", not "Tints"!

    So instead of saying tinted windows (which is plural) I shouldn't be saying "tints" for short? I guess saying "I got tints today" is kind of slang to begin with. What can you do? People pronounce the "T" in "often" everyday. Used to annoy me but its so prevalent that I just accept it. As a matter of fact I think it's become an accepted pronunciation.

    It's not correct and it's a pet peeve. I'm not the only one as it has been the topic of discussion on many car forums I'm on.

    I got "exhausts" done on my van today.

    I would like to remove the tint and leave it clear. No one like the sun, I got a quote for air 80 blue tint for the whole car $750 . 100 dollar was to remove the old tint.
